Solo Exhibition | open for entry

Attention all artists! Are you looking for an opportunity to build your exhibition list and showcase your work to a wider audience? Look no further.

Gallery Omata is proud to offer solo exhibition opportunities to artists of all levels. Whether you're a seasoned artist with an impressive resume or just starting out, we're here to guide you through the process step by step.

At Gallery Omata, we believe that online exhibitions count just as much as physical exhibitions when it comes to building your resume. Our solo exhibitions provide a platform for you to exhibit your work alongside a select group of your peers, giving you the opportunity to see your work professionally presented and gain exposure within the art world.

The solo exhibition includes between 5-10 artworks, interspersed with quotes from your artist statement in a magazine-style page. This is a unique opportunity to showcase your work in a curated and professional format, and will help you build a rock-solid portfolio that reflects your artistic vision.

So what are you waiting for? Submit your work for review and take the first step towards building your exhibition list and solidifying your artistic career. We can't wait to see what you have in store and work with you to bring your vision to life.

Theme:  Solo exhibitions are awarded based on a cohesive body of work created in series. Submit 5 artworks to be considered including artist biography (written in 3rd person) and artist statement (written in 1st person).  

Media: All artists from around the world working in 2D & 3D media including painting, sculpture, works on paper, printmaking, photography and mixed media are invited to submit entries. 

Deadline: Ongoing

Fees: US$45 for 5 images

In our experience artists benefit from seeking out platforms where they feel valued and respected. Where artists can share their work with confidence. The sharing of ideas not only allows more people to become familiar with an artists work but also enhances understanding between people. Especially on an international gallery platform such as this. The process of preparing to submit work for selection in juried competitions is a helpful learning experience for artists. Each step provides valuable skills that will eventually become second nature. It is helpful to review previous exhibitions to gauge the standard. The skill of looking at your own work critically can be difficult to master for a novice artist but it is vital to develop so you can recognise how your work is improving over time.
