OPEN CALL: Rendering Likeness: Volume 2

Contemporary portraiture takes many forms and encompasses countless conceptual viewpoints, mediums and techniques that explore a myriad of subject matter. Last year in one of our most popular shows La Bodega Gallery exhibited a hugely diverse group of portraits and this year we are doing it again…in two locations! This year we are collaborating with a second gallery space Established Gallery in Brooklyn to bring you even more!

 We are currently accepting submissions for the contemporary portraiture exhibitions entitled “Rendering Likeness, Volume 2”. This open call is open to both emerging and established artists who create works of portraiture in any style or medium.
For this open call we are inviting to demonstrate their creative approach to portraiture. Portraits can be figurative, abstract or conceptual.

 There will be TWO curated shows at TWO separate spaces in Brooklyn, if your submission is accepted you will be placed in either space depending on which exhibition better suits the work.
