Celebrating Our 8th Anniversary

First and foremost, we are thrilled to celebrate our 8th anniversary this month. It's been an incredible journey, and we couldn't have done it without the amazing support of our community. To honor this milestone, our team will be jurying our 48th issue. We invite all artists to apply and participate in this special edition. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work and be part of a publication that celebrates creativity and innovation.

"Poetics of Space" Virtual Exhibition

In collaboration with our friends at Deep Space Gallery, we are curating our next virtual exhibition themed "Poetics of Space." This exhibition invites artists to explore and interpret the concept of space. Whether your work focuses on landscapes, interiors, realism, or abstraction, we want to see how you bring space to life through your art. This theme offers a broad spectrum for creativity, and we can't wait to see the diverse range of submissions.

To apply, visit our Submittable page for more details. We encourage all artists to take part in this unique and inspiring exhibition.

About Our Guest Curators

Deep Space Gallery is a hyperlocal gallery with an international presence. Founded in 2016, Deep Space Gallery is run by curators Jenna Geiger and Keith VanPelt. The gallery hosts solo and group exhibitions year-round, featuring the work of ultra-contemporary emerging and mid-career artists, both outsider and formally trained, based locally, nationally, and internationally. Operating out of a two-level space on the industrial edge of Bergen Hill in Jersey City's Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood, Deep Space also works with small businesses in other parts of the city and beyond to expand the presence of art into non-traditional spaces. The gallery is committed to an art-for-all vision, integrating the language of visual art into daily life. Deep Space has staged multi-artist immersive installations at Spring/Break Art Fair during NYC’s annual Armory Week and participated in FOUNDATIONS Winter 2024, hosted by the Artsy platform. The gallery was also invited to exhibit in PERSONAL STRUCTURES 2024: Beyond Boundaries during the 60th annual Venice Biennale. With a robust online presence, Deep Space cultivates a network without geographic limitations, fostering relationships through an inclusive and interconnective community ethos.
