General Submissions

Salon Ciel, a visual arts organization committed to exhibiting emerging artists, accepts submissions on a rolling basis. 

What we want:

We are seeking adventurous, experimental, relevant and savvy artists. We are looking for artwork that is visually interesting or appealing; artistic methods and processes that are technically interesting or innovative; and content/concepts that approach socially relevant issues in complex and new ways. We privilege photography, but welcome painting and mixed-media submissions as well.

We strongly recommend artists review our website and Flickr prior to submitting.

If selected, artists must be available to travel to NYC for portfolio reviews, exhibition logistics, and exhibition opening and closing receptions. Salon Ciel works closely with its artists to price and sell works accurately and fairly; however, artists should be flexible in these negotiations to account for the different prospective audiences, venues, and economic climates.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: All steps must be followed to be considered.
We are accepting the following types of visual art: photographs, film, paintings, collage, mixed-media.

Artists must submit:

1) A website, Flickr stream, or blog that contains images of the artwork to be reviewed. (Please include explicit navigation directions to the works you are submitting. Artists that submit a web link with no directions or other information will not be considered).
2) a short artist statement in the body of your email, if not already on your website
3) a short bio in the body of your email, if not already on your website.
4) The subject of the email should be “general submission – [your name]”
