I am organizing a group exhibit for November 2018
"OPEN SOURE" patterned after a series of salon style exhibitions we have had success with and we would like to include your work for the exhibit. This is an open exhibit for all artists that participate in our calls and competitions, LACDA creates the prints. Referrals are welcome as well.
We will not be able to show prints from the prior "Open Source" exhibits for this new edition of the show. Unsold prints are shipped back to the artists after the show closes.
News of the exhibit will be distributed to our email list of over 15,000 to our network of curators, critics and our considerable social media outlets. The Opening Reception will continue our series of Saturday openings which have been very successful especially at drawing a more specialized art crowd.
The "Open Source" salon style exhibit will feature artists focused on digital art and photography and raises funds for our operations and improvements to our gallery (including our new Epson p10000 printer!). This exhibit will be in the largest of four separate exhibit areas, which features a wall that is 30 contiguous feet wide and 12 feet high. The opening will be high energy and well attended.
Exhibit dates: Nov 8-Dec 1
Saturday reception: Nov 10, 6-9pm
Art Walk preview: Thursday Nov 8, 7-9pm

Our very first Salon style exhibit:
How it works:
Each artist has us do one or more prints for the show at the uniform paper size of 44x36 (up to 38x30 image area with 3" margin/trim area) on your choice of luster, gloss or semi-matte at $145 per print. All are Premium Epson papers and of the highest quality. Having us do the prints is mandatory, as well as the standardized size (which allows for the successful overall design of the exhibit.
We will try to show as many artists as possible, so the show will be a salon style hanging, one work atop another vertically double and triple hung. Work is for sale and the artists receive 50% commission. Prints remaining can be shipped at nominal cost to artist.
No limit on number of prints an artist can show, but space is limited to about 50 prints. Space is reserved when funds are received. Both tall and wide aspect images are welcome.
