Celebration of the Male Form: Open Call for Artists

Art by Jane Scott

Open call to artists for entries into Angst Gallery’s seventh annual Celebration of the Male Form show (January 4-26, 2019).

Art museums around the world are filled with images and representations of the human figure. Some of the Western world’s most famous and compelling works depict people, both clothed and unclothed. It usually goes unnoticed that the art has a disproportionate amount of female figures compared to male figures, especially nude forms.

Angst Gallery showcases the male form at the beginning of each year in order to bring more balance to the equation. We see this as an opportunity to appreciate the male body for what it is–natural, beautiful, and worthy of aesthetic examination–while also acknowledging the gender imbalance in the art world both behind the scenes as well as in the work being displayed in museums and galleries. The show will include depictions of the male form in various media.

Submit up to three pieces. Sliding scale submission fee $10-20.

Intake of artwork will happen on Saturday, December 22 2-6 pm and Wednesday, January 2 11am-2pm.

If neither of those times work, please contact Leah Jackson (Leah.AngstGallery@gmail.com) to make other arrangements.

Unsold artworks can be picked up from noon til 5 on Saturday, January 26.
