Artist Overview

For this first-ever exhibition open to the public in November 2022, we will feature the work of 4 artists (to be announced in late Summer 2022). 

    • Call for submissions: There will be an open call for artists to apply from May 25th – June 19th. 
    • Artist Selection: Led by our Artist Manager, Rina Ellingham, 4 artists will be selected to exhibit in the November exhibition.
    • Custom VR Gallery Creation: The Artist Manager and our VR Designer will work with each artist to create a custom VR gallery space to display their work.
    • Number of pieces: Depending on the medium (all artistic mediums, conventional or modern, will be considered), we ask that artists create 1 new or unique work for this showing in addition to previously shown works. In the example of a painter, we’d say 10 works would nicely fill the space, though in some cases a single work would also suffice. 
    • Exhibition Attendance: During the exhibition days, Artists will be asked to attend at least 2 days. The first day will be their “Artist Feature” day where we ask them to give a short talk on their process and experience in engaging with the theme of “climate artivism.” The second day will be the final closing day of the gallery.
    • Honorarium: Currently we have allocated a $1,000 honorarium for exhibitors. This is in thanks for your work, your speaking, and your attendance. We hope to increase this amount as additional fundraising efforts are made.
