Juried Art Exhibition Open Call for Young Emerging Artists

Ann Street Gallery is pleased to announce an open call for emerging young artists ages 18 to 25 who are invited to submit their work for consideration in our December 2012 group exhibition.

Theme: The Ann Street Gallery provides excellent exhibition opportunities, with over 1,500 square feet of exhibition space to focus on revealing new young talent, ideas, and practices in the contemporary art, and a chance for emerging young artists to gain exposure for their work. The Ann Street Gallery will create a salon-style wall installation of 12″x12″ individual works of all mediums and styles. Up to 200 artists will be selected. Works for consideration may be of any media and any style, including painting, drawing, mixed media, prints, photography, textile, video, ceramic and sculpture. (Ceramic and sculptures may not exceed 50 lbs.) All works must be original, for sale and available for the duration of the exhibition.


  • Open to all emerging artists 18 years to 25 years.
  • All works must conform to a dimension of 12″ H x 12″ W, inclusive of any framing. Works may be smaller in size, but framing must bring the measurement to 12″x12″.
  • Sculpture/Ceramics may be wall mounted either by a hanging device or a shelf measuring 12″ wide and video work must be shown on a hanging apparatus that makes the player 12″x12″.
