In a nod to Philadelphia’s long running Fringe Festival, in which experimental performing artists show their work to the public, we at Gallery 1315 are calling for visual artists who would like to show their experimental work.
Do you have a body of work that you consider experimental? Perhaps it’s an unusual medium for you, or a new subject or maybe no subject. We’re looking for work from the fringes of your own imagination.
Work can be two or three dimensional, as long as it can hang securely on the wall. No all digital work, except for digitally printed photographs, will be accepted.
2 D work cannot be larger than 40 inches on any side, and there are only about 3 spots in the gallery that will accommodate work that big.
3 D work cannot protrude more than 10 inches from the wall.
We can accommodate up to 30 pieces of small to medium size artwork. We’d prefer to hang 2 – 3 pieces of each artist’s work, so we’re looking for about 10 artists.
HOW TO SUBMIT
Send good quality images of up to 5 pieces of work to [email protected]
Image size should be no larger than 1000 pixels per side
Include your name, phone number, website, and street address/city with submission
Include a numbered worklist with titles, mediums and sizes, including frames, with submission
Is the work a multiple?
Explain briefly how this work fits the theme, in other words in what sense it is experimental.
There is no charge for submissions, but make sure to send accurate representations of the work.
(In other words don’t waste your time or our time with illegible submissions or cockeyed photos)

THE GALLERY For those of you who do not know the space, Gallery 1315 is located on the 2nd floor at 1315 Buttonwood St in the Callowhill section of Philadelphia.
We will offer two opening parties for this show, and otherwise are open by appointment.
Because the gallery space does double duty as a tango dance space, there is constant traffic through it, and many people of the tango dance community are also art collectors.
Gallery 1315 will send email and social media invitations to an extensive local list.

CAVEATS: All work must be professionally presented, framed or mounted, WIRED and ready to hang.
