CALL FOR ARTISTS

Calling all artists!

If you're looking for ways to get your art in front of a new audience and increase recognition, we invite you to participate in some of the many showcase opportunities we have throughout the year. From our renowned, annual Art in the Park event, to shows, exhibits and community events, there are numerous ways to gain exposure within the Naples community and with visitors to the region.

Exhibit Opportunities

Gallery 104: A Splash of Blue

Blue is the color of the sky and water. It so dominates our world that the earth is called “the Blue Planet.” Blue is perceived as a calming color and has many other associations including confidence and reliability. In this exhibition, art has at least a splash of blue.

Animals: Fact and Fable

We share the world and our lives with animals. They take many forms and have different personalities from friendly to ferocious. Domesticated animals like dogs and cats can be our most cherished companions while wild animals are best left alone. There is great diversity in the Animal Kingdom. So much so that the line between real and imagined creatures has always been a bit blurred.

Gallery 104: The Great Outdoors

Nature is a muse of artists who are not afraid to explore. Nature’s bounty awaits discovery.

One Submission Allowed. No larger than 144″ perimeter, including frame.

Telling A Story: Narrative Art

Narrative art illustrates or tells a story. It usually describes self-explanatory events from daily life or those drawn from a text, well-known folk tale, or myth. Storytelling is central to the history of visual art and appears in every culture and historical time period. For more information, click the Prospectus link below.
