Off the Wall 2021 - OPEN CALL

Culture Lab LIC and Long Island CIty Artists team up for the 3rd  Affordable Holiday Art Fair at The Plaxall Gallery! 

Description of Exhibition:

The Affordable Holiday Art Fair exhibition is a wonderful way to showcase your artwork to the greater NYC area while focusing on tenants of the surrounding community, to come into the gallery and buy art as gifts, enhance their homes or start their own collections. We want to make buying art accessible to everyone, including people who may not be familiar with it and help introduce all of our neighbors to our arts community. 

We are excited to announce this year’s Affordable Holiday Art Fair, Off the Wall will also include a tabletop exhibit featuring ceramics and other tabletop items. .Reflecting on the past year living through the pandemic sharing a meal with friends and family has changed.  This exhibition welcomes us to reclaim this important ritual with our friends and family while reminding us all that dinner tables are a  place for human connection. Ceramic artists are asked to submit functional artwork to reestablish the connections to the table to express the inter-connectivity of society. Whether it is a one of a kind abstract interpretation or place setting, monumental centerpieces or a simple flower vase, to be part of a curated communal table.

All submitted work should be priced at $500 or less, which we have found is the average price cap for first time collectors.  With our previous Affordable Art Fairs as a guideline, many works have sold and most for under $100. If your artwork is purchased, please be aware that you can replace that open space with another piece of artwork. We welcome submission for all media including sculptures, paintings, photography, mixed media etc.

LIC-A and CultureLab will not take a commission. All payments will go directly to the artist using the digital payment information the artist has listed at time of submission. 

Happy Holidays!
