Dutch Art Gallery 2021 Spring Juried Show call for entries

LESS IS MORE | Limited Color Palette
Themed Juried Show Call for Entry
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, April 26th, 2021 | Midnight (CST)
SHOW RUN: Saturday, June 5th, 2021 through Saturday, July 10th, 2021


Many artists use a limited color palette which allows them to focus on tone and composition and provides a great deal of color harmony in their work. We want to see what you can achieve with only four colors. Color may be limited but subject and style are wide open. We invite you to take up this challenge, flex your brain muscles, and try something a little different if you’ve never painted with a limited palette before.

You MUST use white and three colors of your own choosing; a total of 4 colors. No more and no less. If your work is chosen for the show you will be asked to provide small color swatches of your three colors that will be displayed alongside your work.

-2D painting and drawing work only. No Sculpture. No Photography. No crafts.

-Must have been produced during the 2020-2021 calendar year.

-Artist must include in the online registration a statement specific to each entered piece explaining the work. The artists thoughts, the process, feelings about working with the limited palette are all acceptable things to write about.

-Entry must meet standard framing sizes. Gallery provides temporary framing for the run of the show.

-Gallery wrapped canvas will be acceptable at any size because framing is not required. Must have minimum depth of 1.25 inches. Sides must be painted–either extend the painting to the sides or painted a solid color (no white/gesso or blank canvas on sides).

-Entry must be available to sell.

-Entry must be original art produced by the artist registered. Work done by a production studio, in classes or workshops, work from kits, commercial designs, and derivative work is prohibited.

NONREFUNDABLE Entry Fee of $55.00 USD covers 1 to 3 entries.
