We are excited to announce our Winter 2020-21 Juried Open Call!

How are you seeing change, coping with change, and being a change-maker? This broad yet timely question guides curation of this show.

All artists are invited to submit their work for consideration to a Virtual Exhibition curated by artist and educator Chloe Alexander aka The Hapless Printmaker. See below for more information about Chloe.

All submissions will be considered for our social media, podcast interviews, blog, and future opportunities.

All visual arts media and international artists are invited to apply. You do not have to be an art educator to apply!

Accepted artists will be invited to share a brief video of their process and concepts, which will be included on their artist page. Videos are NOT required, but are an added bonus – a way for you to share more about your work with our audience.

8 Artists will also be invited to do an instagram live studio visit!

We will be creating several lesson plans based on the themes in the show and on individual works in the show.

Artists who are not juried into the show will receive feedback on their submission.

Image Requirements:

  • Each entry includes up to 5 images
  • Please be sure to include high-quality images of your work, minimum 1000 pixels wide
  • Files no larger than 5mb
  • All images must be cropped to show only the artwork.

Additional Information:

  • Bio: 300 words max
  • Artist Statement: 300 words max
  • Be prepared to enter information about each artwork: dimensions, materials, year, and price (if for sale)

All sales made through the show will be split 70% artist, 10% Amplifier (an amazing non-profit), 20% gallery.

The online exhibit aims to be an internationally accessible 24/7, curated, professional, virtual presentation of exciting contemporary work from around the world. The show is presented here at exhibit.teachingartistpodcast.com and is promoted via social media, email list, and additional network contacts. Each artist is highlighted individually on social media @teachingartistpodcast and @curatedforkids.

Please note that there is a $20 submission fee, which supports Play + Inspire gallery as an independent curatorial platform. Play + Inspire Gallery is a curatorial collaboration between Rebecca Potts of Teaching Artist Podcast and Maria Coit of Curated for Kids. We are both artists and teachers (and parents), running these projects alongside our other work. As such, we truly understand the barrier submission fees can create, while also valuing the time and effort that goes into creative work and all the behind-the-scenes administrative work of supporting artists.

In order to break down this barrier while also valuing our own time, this is a sliding fee scale opportunity with a suggested fee of $20 to support the work that we do, but with the opportunity to apply for as low as $8 if you are unable to pay the suggested fee.
