Every year for 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its “Open Call” exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an international experiment of the same nature where the artists upload images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works are displayed in agrid like installation where every work submitted is exhibited.
Snap to Grid: The UN-Juried Exhibit takes place from December 11, 2014 – January 3, 2015, with an Opening Reception on Thursday December 11, from 7 – 9 pm in conjunction with the Downtown Art Walk.
Display your work in this nationally acclaimed, un-juried exhibit featuring digital art and photography. All entries will be printed (8.5″x11″ on heavyweight paper) and shown in the LACDA gallery arranged in a grid. Entrants submit .JPEG files of original work. Multiple entries are permitted ($35/ entry). Separate registration fee is required for each image.
All styles of artwork and photography in which digital processes of any kind were integral to the creation of the images are acceptable. Digital video stills and screen shots of web/new media are acceptable. Documentation shots of digital installation and digital sculpture are acceptable.
