Open Call for ART



Calling all artists in Greater Portland!

Creative Portland is now accepting submissions for our spring show, "IMMERSION"

Submissions due March 21, 2019

We invite Greater Portland artists to submit your work for exhibition consideration at our 4th juried show, IMMERSION, which will hang for 6 months between April 25 and October 25, 2019. Unless you are exhibiting in our current show, "On The Verge," at 84 Free Street, all artists are invited to submit (up to three pieces of) work via high resolution jpeg to submissions@creativeportland.com for consideration.
The theme is IMMERSION. Your response will present your personal interpretation of the theme. Our curatorial team will review your work, due by March 21. Should your piece be chosen and sold in our gallery, we ask for a donation in the amount of 20% of the sale.
  • Artist must be a resident of Greater Portland (Biddeford to Brunswick).
  • All 2D mediums are welcome; no sculptures please.

  • No more than three submissions per artist.
  • Submissions must be labeled: each jpeg must be labeled with the artist's name as well as the title, medium, dimensions, and price of the piece. Please include this info in the body of your email as well.
  • Please also include your physical address and a link to your website (if applicable) in the body of your email.
  • Art must be ready to hang and available to exhibit April - October 2019.
