By Degrees: Art and our Changing Ecology Open Call, Juried Exhibition on view April 15 – June 10, 2023
Presented by the Huntington Beach Art Center in collaboration with Curators and Guest Jurists: Luciana Abait and Lawrence Gipe.
The Huntington Beach Art Center announces an open call for submissions to By Degrees, a juried exhibition of original artworks addressing critical environmental themes. As global warming becomes increasingly evident in our daily lives, artists around the world and in our communities are reflecting, creating and examining the climate crisis in response. By Degrees brings awareness to the severity and scale of our changing ecology as seen through the artist’s eye.
Curators Luciana Abait and Lawrence Gipe will view the parameters of the “environmental” theme in the jurying process with a wide lens. Artists are allowed up to two submissions of original art in any media completed in the last two years (2021-23). The jurists equally consider conventional (painting, drawing, mixed media, print, film photography, digital or video media) and non-conventional (such as installations, repurposed “non-art” resources, eco-activist documentation, etc.) artworks for exhibition.
Online submissions close on Thursday, March 2 at 5:00pm. Artists are required to complete an online submission form – including the artist’s name, artwork title, year, medium, measurements, (including frame, if applicable), and retail price (if applicable) – with high quality digital images for jury consideration. Selected artists will be contacted to schedule artwork drop by appointment.
The jury fee is $20.00 for one or two artwork submissions for jury consideration. Submission is not a guarantee of exhibition. Non-refundable payment is due at the time of submission. The Art Center accepts credit card or PayPal as payment. Submission fees support HBAC exhibition programming excellence. Download the prospectus for complete guidelines.
