Exhibit Title: I Am An Artist
Exhibit Location: Downtowner Gallery, Round Rock, TX
Deadline to apply online: Friday, December 1, 2023
Why is it sometimes so hard to say out loud, “I Am An Artist?” We know that art-making and sharing artwork is a personal process involving vulnerability and confidence. Some feel unworthy of declaring that they are an artist, and yet you are an artist based on the fact that you are deliberately creating.
With this exhibit, we want to put the spotlight on emerging artists and their works, including artists exhibiting art in a gallery setting for the very first time. All ages are welcome, from 16 to 116 years of age.
Being an emerging artist has nothing to do with age or the time you’ve spent honing your creativity. Some artists have worked for years on their art, perhaps considering it a hobby, and are finally wishing to share their art in an art gallery setting. Other emerging artists are newer to their art practice. Still other emerging artists shared their art publicly in high school or college exhibits but haven’t done so in their adult life.
Our hope is that gallery visitors will be inspired and gain confidence through seeing the works of other emerging artists and will feel more empowered to declare, “I Am An Artist!”
We invite artists working in a range of styles, mediums (2D and 3D) and topics to submit artwork for consideration, including but not limited to:
- Tattoo art
- Poster art
- Band flyers and ephemera
- Jewelry, hats, garments, and other wearable art
- Graphic design
- Creative reuse
- 3D printed artwork
- Art quilts and other fiber arts
- Photography, illustration, and other 2D art
- Art journals
All ages are welcome, from 16 to 116 years of age.
NOTE TO ALL ARTISTS
We want all artists to know that we always welcome new, first-time, emerging, and professional artists to submit art for consideration to any of our Call for Art opportunities.
