Open Call for "Cleveland's Smallest Gallery"

Award: 1 month, solo exhibition open 24/7

Guidelines: Phone Gallery - Application2016.pdf 2.16 MB

Disciplines: Visual

Location: Local (Cleveland Area)

Organization: Phone Gallery

Until the Phone Gallery was transformed in summer 2013 by Ivana, Ali, and local handyman Doug Holmes, it was utility-less and phone-less. Now, Phone Gallery is always open thanks to an electrical source, motion sensor and LED lights. It’s inherently public and highly visible location across from Praxis Fiber Workshop, Waterloo 7 Studios and next door to Article is accessible from I-90 at the E.156th stop west-bound and E.152nd east-bound.
In Spring 2014, Phone Gallery held its inaugural exhibition and in 2016 Ali Lukacsy was awarded a Creative Workforce Fellowship on behalf of the original, thought provoking miniscule space for art display.
Phone Gallery’s mission is to exhibit emerging visual artists who may not have a portfolio of work to fill a "normal" sized space alongside established regional artists. Students of all ages are encouraged to apply.
Phone Gallery is currently accepting applications in this open call from Greater Cleveland-based artists to exhibit in the box in a rotating 1-month long solo exhibition. There are no deadlines and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Max display size: 11" w x 22" h x 6" d.

Visual 2-D and 3-D pieces are encouraged. An outlet internal to the box is available for those submissions requiring electricity.


DISCLAIMER: Phone Gallery is not liable for theft or damage. The renovation of the box is designed to be tamper-proof and water-tight. We have not yet had any issues with artwork being compromised.
Phone Gallery is supported by Northeast Shores Development Corporation and funded by grants from The Kresge Foundation, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture (CAC), through Creative Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC)’s Creative Workforce Fellowship and residents of Cuyahoga County through CAC.
