Calls for Artists: Opportunities

Dear Artists,

We get calls and competition information from our own Gallery 140, from other local venues, local events, and all over the place.  We will list them here as they come in and move them down as their deadlines pass.  Let us know if you find the information useful.

We have linked a sample copy of the 2019/2020 Memorandum of Understanding that artists must review and sign before they exhibit at Gallery 140. They are not written in stone, and we are always willing to discuss possibilities and consider exceptions.

Gallery 140 MOU with Exhibiting Artists

We want to see Gallery 140 become a true Community Gallery,
where the exhibits are planned, executed, curated, and supervised by artists!
Find out more about our plans for Gallery 140  here.
Find an entry form for artists here.
Get information about how you can participate in planning or propose an event here.
