33 Contemporary Gallery Open Call

33 Contemporary Gallery, based in Miami and Palm Beach is looking to expand its abstract art lineup for our collector base. With over 15 years in business, our gallery is excited to discover new and exciting artists to feature in our galleries and online marketplace. We are pleased to announce an open call for artists to participate in the upcoming exhibition Interplay: Geometric Abstraction, curated by Sergio Gomez.

This exhibition delves into the dynamic realm of abstraction, exploring how artists use geometry as both a point of departure and a destination, symbolically and narratively, as well as in formal, non-objective manners. Watch video below for further explanation on the exhibition’s theme. This exhibition will take place in our beautiful space in Palm Beach County, Florida and will take center stage at the Palm Beach Art & Design Showroom. We invite artists worldwide working with abstraction and geometry to submit for participation and a chance to receive gallery feature or representation.

Opportunity for Representation:

This call and exhibition provide a unique opportunity for artists to not only gain exposure but also to be considered for future representation by 33 Contemporary Gallery. As part of this initiative, the gallery will select three outstanding artists from the exhibition to join its roster, offering them continued opportunities to sell their work in our South Florida galleries. This is an excellent chance for artists to establish a long-term relationship with a reputable gallery and enhance their professional careers.

Online Sales via Artsy:

The entire exhibition will be available for sale online through Artsy under the 33 Contemporary Gallery listing, maximizing the exposure for participating artists. This effort ensures that the artworks will reach a larger audience, offering additional opportunities for sales and visibility.

Exhibition Catalog:

To complement the exhibition, 33 Contemporary Gallery will create a free digital catalog featuring all participating artists and their works.
