Submission

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN!

We are now accepting submissions for our upcoming shows:

THE EVAC invites you to step foot into the expansive universe of art to be surrounded by paintings, sculpture, digital art, photography and holograms.

ALL MEDIUMS ARE ACCEPTED. The East Village Art Collection is unlike any gallery in the world.

We focus on quality, unique, and cutting-edge art experiences.

We are the opposite of boring. Art is everywhere!

***Artists worldwide are welcome to submit!!***

OPENING PARTY

The opening party will be a special night with live music and drinks, and most importantly, you as the artist will be able to connect and experience art on a different level like never before. Not only will you have the opportunity to sell your pieces, but you will be able to network amongst New York City's top art collectors and art community members.

Artists retain 100% of all sales that are made during the show, 0% gallery commissions.

There is a $25 fee to submit your application, and upon acceptance, it will be applied to the total exhibition cost.

We wish we did not have to charge the $25 to submit, but it is impossible due to the amount of time that the curation team takes to look into each and every artist that applies.
 
Eligibility: Artists around the world are welcome to submit works in any medium: painting, sculpture, drawing, nft, ceramics, printmaking, photography, wearable art mixed media, installation, performance, digital and film. If your submission is NOT accepted to showcase, your submission fee will be refunded. If your submission is accepted and you decline to showcase, your submission fee will not be refunded.
 

If your artwork is not selected for the exhibition, you will receive a full refund for your submission. If your art is accepted, you are responsible for the total exhibition cost of $475. Accepted artists are allowed to have up to 5 pieces that fit within a total of up to 5 x 5' of wall space.
