Call to Artist: This Thing Called Life

 

About the theme "This Thing Called Life"

With all its twists and turns, LIFE takes us through similar but UNIQUE experiences, timelines, and journeys. Regardless of existence or lessons, each of us is special. When we create art that tells the stories of our individual experiences, they become encoded with our own perspective, vantage points, reflections, and fragmented memories. Others engage with it through similar experiences and or longing. In this way, we are all CONNECTED… living from, through, and towards our shared reality.

"This Thing Called Life" is an exhibition of art that reflects upon and showcases unique life experiences. We invite artists to share their world with us and allow others to live through their eyes. All mediums and subject matter are welcome except for video and audio.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

  • 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: contact@hostampa.com. 

  • 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: contact@hostampa.com 

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

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