Open Call for New York Based Emerging Artists

The Gabarron Foundation
(New York NY)
The Gabarron Foundation is having an open call for emerging artists who are interested in displaying their artwork for a special exhibition. Eight New York based artists will be selected for this cross-continental exhibition titled “Two Hemispheres.”

THE GOAL: Our goal is to have two groups of artists (Spanish and American) engage in a cultural dialogue through the vehicle of the visual arts. We will select one to two art pieces from each artist to be displayed in all of our exhibitions, both here in New York and in Spain.

From September 13th to November 2nd, the chosen pieces will be exhibited in the first floor gallery at the Foundation’s Carriage House Center for the Arts in New York. After, the pieces will be transported to be displayed in the Foundation's three centers located in Spain. Additionally, the Gabarron Foundation will make a catalog book of the chosen pieces for further promotion. This opportunity is quintessential for emerging artists to network and promote their art on an international level.

•             All applicants must be less than 40 years of age
•             Resume/CV
•             Personal Website
•             5+ .jpg images of artwork(s)

The Gabarron Foundation is a non-profit organization, cultural center, and art gallery located in the Carriage House Center for the Arts that strives to inspire vision and creativity in audiences of all ages, races, and creeds. As an organization that values diversity in the highest regard, it is our mission to promote cultural awareness, art appreciation, and education for the community. The Foundation values the interpretation and exchange of contemporary art and culture, as strives to be an echo chamber for the Spanish land outside its borders and, at the same time, a mirror of the American culture.

It is our hope that bright and talented emerging artists will join us in this significant cultural and artistic undertaking.  Thank you!
