Downsizing:

Small Works from Overabundance

Invitation for submissions to a show featuring small work in a variety of mediums that deal with societies need to "downsize". While our GalleRE space is all about featuring artwork with reused materials, for our open calls we like any artist regardless of past experience with upcycled materials to apply. We just ask that they be open to working with alternative materials for this particular show. You never know you may love it! We will ask accepted ask artists to explore our Materials Marketplace, and be inspired by our variety of things to make a work of art out of.
