Open Call Mini Maxi Prints Berlin 2019

Deadline: August 1, 2019

All professional artists are invited to participate in our Open Call Graphic Prints Berlin. This special graphic exhibition was established by Galleri Heike Arndt DK as “Graphic Prints Berlin”  and has been a recurrent event at Galleri Heike Arndt DK in Berlin since 2014.

From 2019, for the 5th anniversary of the exhibition, we are happy to announce that the exhibition will present a fresh profile. Galleri Heike Arndt DK will collaborate with Galerie Kuchling for a new edition of the well-established exhibition. Since both galleries share the same neighbourhood in Berlin-Friedrichshain along the Karl-Marx-Allee / Frankfurter Allee, their mutual goal is to create a greater and more diverse platform for international, contemporary artists in this area and beyond.

The collaboration of the two galleries makes it possible not only to extend the amount of works but also the sizes which will be accepted. To give this productive change a name, we decided to redefine the exhibition as “Mini Maxi Prints Berlin”.

By participating in this print exhibition, you are given the opportunity to exhibit your work in one of the two galleries (It will NOT be possible for artists to choose the gallery to be shown ). Also, it is the perfect opportunity to develop your network within graphic art connecting you to many other international artists.

"Sanctuary" | National Juried Exhibition at Arc Gallery

National Juried Exhibition at Arc Gallery
1246 Folsom St
San Francisco, CA 94103

DEADLINE:  March 18th, 2019
May 18, 2019 – June 22, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, May 18th 7-9PM

The word “Sanctuary” has recently been associated with individual and municipality resistance to the Federal enforcement of immigration laws. “Sanctuary” itself has a wide range of definitions: a place offering shelter, a sacred or consecrated place, a container of holy things, a refuge for humans or wildlife, and a place offering immunity from law. We are seeking works that broadly define “Sanctuary.” Works that convey political activism, faith and religion, wildlife protections, and a place of refuge, peace and safety are welcome, as well as abstract works that express the meaning of “Sanctuary.”

GUIDELINES: Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, glass art, and artist books are all accepted. Artists must reside in the United States in order to be eligible to apply.

JUROR: Bryan Yedinak, Themes + Projects, San Francisco, CA - Bryan Yedinak is the co-founder of Modernbook and Themes + Projects where he has been both creative director and curator, fusing art, design, interiors, architecture, fashion, music, publishing and film within the aesthetic of both shop and gallery. Bryan has curated over 100 exhibitions over 20 years. He is currently on the advisory board of Modern Luxury interior design publication and a member of the San Francisco Art Dealers Association. Bryan grew up in San Jose, CA, and studied painting at California State University, Long Beach.

JUROR’S AWARD: A Juror’s Award ribbon, certificate, catalog and $250 will be presented to each of the three works that express the most imaginative interpretation of the theme. 

GALLERY & ONLINE GALLERY: There are two opportunities to get into this show. The juror will select works that will be exhibited in the Arc Gallery and works that will be included only on the Arc On-line Gallery. All artwork selected will be included in the exhibition catalog. Catalogs will be available for order at the time of notification.
