Eutectic Gallery- Call to Artists

Eutectic Gallery of Portland, Oregon proudly announces an open call to artists in the ceramic medium.

Eu・tec・tic – [yoo-tek-tik] adj.: The proportion of constituents in a mixture that yields the lowest possible complete melting point; often lower than the constituents on their own.

Similar to the relationship between the components that make up clay and their proportions, Eutectic Gallery wishes to explore the relationship between an artist’s process, product, & concept, and the public’s interpretation of, interaction with, and critique of said work.

Eutectic is seeking submissions that interpret and exemplify the Eutectic concept throughout a body on work, or between two artists and two bodies of work.

The cost of submission for a single artist is $25 and $35 for a pair and may include up to 5 images.  Additional images can be submitted for $5 each.

Deadlines: We are always happy to view submitted work in the format requested below.  We have currently filled the 2014 schedule for our main gallery but are always looking for new artist to show and represent.  We currently review submissions once every 60 days and do our best to contact the artists with in a timely manner, but due to a large volume of submissions, responses can be delayed.

All submission fees are non refundable.  Submissions can be sent via US Postal Service, Fed Ex or UPS to the address below. Compact Discs, DVDs, flash drives or 8″x10″ prints [we can not be responsible for returning physical items] can be sent with proper documentation along with a cheque for the correct amount addressed to:
