+ CALL FOR DAMNED ART +
damned -adj. 1. condemned to eternal punishment.
2. detestable; loathsome. 3. complete; absolute
Within the word, it is easy to envision devils and hellfire. However, it also reflects the eternal condemnation of self and the subtle mind against itself. It may reflect the emotional trappings within the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps the binding tendrils of our deepest longings or deprivations.
DAMNED is an exhibition of those extraordinary artists who know that without darkness, there is no light, that beauty does reside within the repulsive and enlightenment within our darkest hours. This art may be the one true reflection of self that make us balanced within our personal damnations…or possibly it is an expressive visual therapy…or simply a sign that there is amazingly inexplicable inside without comparison.
+ SUBMISSION GUIDELINES +
Artists of all mediums from anywhere in the world are welcome to submit their work to DAMNED. There are no restrictions on genre or content but the more deeply personal and powerfully introspective, the better. Before you submit your artwork, please follow these guidelines:
- Older work is acceptable, but please do not submit those previously submitted to DAMNED.
- Artwork must be of original design by the submitting artist. Models please do not submit without the artist’s permission.
- Only one image per submission. If your art is three dimensional (statues, mixed media, etc), please create a single montage image.
- All submitted images must be in JPG format and in reasonable filesize (no larger than 1MB is preferred).
- Each JPG image must have the artist’s name and title in the filename (ex: artistname_piecetitle.jpg).
There are no fees to submit and you may submit as many pieces as you like (resend the form if you have more than allowed here). All accepted artists will be required to pay a single $13 registration/processing fee, regardless of the number of pieces selected. The exhibition retains a 33.3% (1/3) commission on all art sales made during the exhibition (artist retains 66.6% or 2/3).
The deadline is September 13th 2017 and all submitters will receive a notification of our review by September 20th. Art drop-off/shipping information will be sent within the acceptance email (We also have an in-house art service to help non-local artists save on shipping costs).
If you have any questions, please contact us before submitting.

PRICE MINIMUM: If you are selling your art at DAMNED, also consider a “minimum sales price”. More often than not, an interested buyer may offer a price to immediately purchase a piece and this can often determine a sale or not. If you indicate a “minimum” price for your pieces, we will store it in our private database (our eyes only) to refer to if those offers come our way. We will always push the regular asking price but it may definitely help if the potential buyer is “on the fence”. NOTE: This is not mandatory.
SYNOPSIS: You are allowed to include a brief 333 character synopsis for each image to share your personal thoughts, stories, inspirations, techniques or anything that will bring much more personal depth to the piece. These words will often strengthen the power of the piece for the viewer. NOTE: This is not mandatory.
We thank you for your consideration and look forward to your DAMNED submission!
