Shipping Fees: Artists living all over the world are invited to apply to this opportunity. However, if shipping is required, it is the artist’s responsibility to pay for shipping to and from the gallery, to pack artwork appropriately, to make sure it arrives in time to be included in the exhibit, and to arrange any further details with the gallery.
Safeguarding Artworks: KLG does not supply artwork insurance. Though we take the utmost care of artworks, locking and arming all doors when not monitored by a KLG representative, artists exhibit works at their own risk, and are responsible for supplying their own insurance if that is desired.
Installation Requirements: If special equipment is needed to display your artwork (i.e. anything digital such as a TV, DVD player, etc), it is the artist’s responsibility to provide this equipment. KLG has a variety of dark metal pedestals for sculptural works. If something else is desired, this is the artist’s responsibility to provide as well. All artworks should arrive professionally presented and ready to hang.
Size Limitations: Submitted wall-hanging works should not exceed 4ft wide and 8ft tall. If you would like a floor plan of the gallery, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications WILL NOT be accepted after the application deadline.
Jurying fees are non-refundable.

“What is the point of making beautiful things, or of cherishing the beauty of the past, when ugliness runs rampant?” asks Alex Ross in the 2017 New Yorker magazine article “Making Art in a Time of Rage.” Ross later references a London gallery that, in the midst of World War II, prefaced the exhibition catalogue for Jacob Epstein’s flower paintings with a quote from Shakespeare:
It’s an age-old question. Are we as artists responsible for creating challenging works and addressing critical issues of our time head on? Are other expressions trite or selfish acts of escapism? Or can beauty be powerful? Can the act of creating beauty during a time of ugliness be a form of resistance in itself, offering a vision of all that humans can aspire to?
In the spirit of Van Jones’ Love Army, and Pete Seeger’s banjo, Kehler Liddell Gallery (KLG) invites artists working in ALL MEDIA (visual, auditory, tactile, etc.) to submit works that: represent fierce expressions of beauty; offer an understanding of our shared humanity; create a profoundly needed respite or refuge. In short, works that show beauty and love as a form of resistance.
The exhibition will run from April 26th – May 27th, 2018, a timeframe that includes Westville's Annual Art Walk (May 11th & 12th, 2018). The opening reception will be on Sunday, April 29th, 3-6pm with a panel discussion @ 2pm moderated by Lucy Gellman, Editor of the Arts Paper.
Artists may submit up to 3 images. There is a $30 entry fee, payable via the link below.
