Artists are invited to submit up to three (3) "ready to hang" artworks each. Artwork in a variety of 2D media is accepted (paintings, photographs, drawings, prints), as well as small-scale sculptures. Tickets are sold for $100 each, so we ask artists keep this value in mind when submitting artworks.

Submissions are juried on a rolling basis by Cézanne's Closet 2023 Co-Curators. All those who submit artworks will receive a reply. Selected artworks will be displayed at Union Gallery leading up to the live event open to the public for preview.

All funds raised directly support Union Gallery's admission-free programming, including exhibitions, artist opportunities, workshops, performances and more.

To submit artworks: fill out the submission form linked below by December 10, 2022. Artists will be notified of selection results by December 14, 2022.

Selected artworks are due at Union Gallery by 4:30pm on December 14, 2022. Staff will be on-site to accept artwork drop-off on 3 dates from 11am-4:30pm: Saturday, December 10, Tuesday, December 13, and Wednesday, December 14.
