Call to Artist: It's Complicated


"An enchantment of human life is the private and tender connection and relation of one to one. Every soul's promise has innumerable fulfilments and can revolutionize another mind and body." - Emerson.

A special connection or relationship can change our lives and affect how we internalize interpersonal dynamics and the world around us. Relational intimacy can enrich our human experience - offering an individual a complicated taste of connection and love coupled with disappointment and/or suffering. Even the simplest, most innocent connection could take one on an expressive journey of highs and lows.

'It's Complicated' intends to exhibit work that takes an unflinching look into relationships - whether that of the artist or as an observer. We are looking for visual artwork that materializes and gives perspective to the complicated relationship struggles of any and all relationship dynamics.

What is Cloudfolios? 

Cloudfolios is a platform we use to publish our art calls. Artists submitting their work for consideration will be doing so through the Cloudfolios system. 

How and when will I know if I've been accepted?

Every artist who submitted their work for consideration will be notified by email. Once the work is finalized, an email is sent to the artists automatically by the Cloudfolios system (the same system the artist used to submit). This email will let the artists know which works were accepted and which works were rejected. If you do not receive an email within a couple of days, please double check your spam folder and or contact us at: 

What happens and or what do I do after I am accepted? 

Accepted artists can expect a follow-up email directly from the gallery congratulating them on their acceptance as well as a very detailed PDF with their exhibiting details. 

How and when do I submit my biography and conceptual statements? 

Artists will be given detailed instructions through their exhibiting details PDF on how to submit their statements. This requirement only applies to artists who are accepted.

Why is installation, audio, and video art not allowed?

We apologize for this exclusion. Our gallery at this time is not equipped to exhibit these particular mediums of art. We hope to change this in the future. 

How much is it to submit and are there any other fees during the submission process? 

For this particular exhibition, the entry fee is $30.00 for a maximum of 20 works that you can submit. Meaning, for $30.00, you will be able to submit 20 individual works of art. The Cloudfolios system will charge you a 10% processing fee. That means that the submission will cost you a total of $33.00. The gallery DOES NOT charge you a 10% processing fee. The additional $3.00 charged does not go to the gallery. It goes to CloudFolios™ Inc - which is a separate company. We simply utilize the Cloudfolios software. 

If my work was entirely rejected, can I inquire to know why?

Yes, you may. Please email us at: 

Is there any assistance the gallery can provide for underprivileged artists? 

This varies depending on the medium, circumstance, and availability. Please email us at: for more information and questions.
