Call For Entries: Summer Open Call Show 2017


  • Sly Cat Gallery 206 South Broad Street Cedar Hill, TX, 75104 United States (map)

Sly Cat Galley is announcing our annual Summer Open Call for 2017. This year the theme is “Memory.”

Consider the aspects of memory; a collection of moments, that when revisited hold more power than the truth. Recollections carry emotions that were lost on you at the time, and can only truly be felt once the moment has faded into memory.

All mediums are welcome, as are both 2-D and 3-D works. There is no specific size limit, just be aware if you are submitting a large piece it might be wise to include examples of smaller works as gallery space is limited. Up to 10 works can be submitted. There is no entry fee or age limit, but the artist MUST be local (from the Dallas-Fort Worth area).

Submission instructions:

1)    Send a high-quality image or images via email.

2)    Image list including: Title, artist’s name, medium, size, and year completed.

3)    A short description of the work, the process of how it was made, and the inspiration behind it (keep it short, a paragraph or a page max).

4)    Contact information including both email and phone number.

5)    Artwork must be presentable; whether this means a frame for a painting or a mat for a drawing, or a simple base for a sculpture. If after selection you still need help with this, we are happy to assist.

6)    Hanging hardware must be provided, D-rings for large pieces, wire for smaller works. Please no saw-tooth hangers as they do not work well with our hanging system.

Images must be submitted by May 13. Artists will be notified by May 17 if they are to participate. Artwork must be received by June 1, earlier if presentation help (framing, etc.) is needed. Paintings must be dry. More information about artwork drop-off and shipping will be given when artists are notified of acceptance.

Works will be on display from June 10 through Sept. 2, 2017, in our gallery at 206 South Broad St., Cedar Hill, TX 75104.

Works will be placed for sale on consignment for the agreed upon amount of time in accordance with the consignment agreement provided at the time of selection.

Thank you!
