Gallery 924 Seeks Artwork for 11th Annual TINY Show

   

Gallery 924 is seeking artwork from central Indiana artists for the eleventh annual holiday group show: TINY XI. The goal is to feature as many artists as possible offering the widest array of options for holiday shoppers to start a tiny collection of art for themselves or as gifts.

Artists working in all styles and media (2D, 3D, installation, etc.) are welcome  – the only similarity will be size. All work should be “tiny”….or no greater than six inches in any direction. (max. size is 6” x 6” x 6”, there is no minimum size). TINY should not be confused with a more traditional “miniatures” show. Artists who create miniature works are welcome to apply, but this show is more about the element of surprise, experiment, interaction, and whimsy!

Artists may apply with up to 5 individual artworks OR up to 10 works from a series (a unified, cohesive, related body of work).

Selection Process

The group exhibition will be chosen by an internal selection committee and curated and installed by the Gallery 924 staff. Work will be selected based on the quality of the work, how well it fits within the larger group show, and the relevance to the theme of the show: TINY.

Eligibility

  • All central Indiana artists over the age of 18 are welcome to submit. For these purposes, central Indiana is considered to be Marion and the seven surrounding counties (Hamilton, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson, Morgan, Hendricks, and Boone).
  • Work must have been completed within the last three years.
  • If 2D, work must be framed (if appropriate), wired and ready to hang. No sawtooth hangers.
  • The size of the work including the frame should fit within a 6” x 6” area.  But, if the artwork itself is 6” x 6” and must be framed, it is preferred that the frame not exceed 8” x 8”.

*Please note that Gallery 924 takes a 25% commission on all artwork sold in the gallery; however, artists should keep their prices at a consistent level based upon previous sales, not commission rates. When pricing your work for this particular show, keep in mind that the Arts Council and Gallery 924 will be promoting the show as a great place to buy unique, indypendent holiday gifts, so a price range at or below $100 would be most appropriate, but certainly not required. The most common price range is $35 – $150.

Indy Arts Council Equity Statement

The Indy Arts Council is committed to working with the arts and cultural community to cultivate a sector that serves, celebrates, and values every resident of Indianapolis. In pursuit of this vision, we do not predetermine participation on the basis of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or religion. We see a successful arts and cultural community as one where all artists have full access to the robust creative arts resources of our city and in which their varied histories, voices, and life experiences are honored. Our goal is to ensure that at least 39% of Arts Council commissions, artist payments, and contracted services, by both numbers and dollars spent, are directed towards BIPOC artists and service providers. Recent projects have approached and exceeded 50%.
