Open Call to Georgia Artists for Group Exhibition

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) is calling all Georgia artists for its 6th installment of the biennial exhibition Gathered VI: Georgia Artists Selecting Georgia Artists. Esteemed jurors Bojana Ginn, Joseph Peragine, and Betsy Cain are committed to offering not only the breadth of talent across the state of Georgia, but also the depth.  The exhibition has steadily evolved over the last seventeen years from its original incarnation: Within State Lines, which took place in 2006 and 2009, to Georgia Artists Selecting Georgia Artists, 2013 and 2015, and finally, to Gathered: Georgia Artists Selecting Georgia Artists.  The MOCA GA mission is fully realized within this project as artists are involved in all phases of the exhibition, including selection and review.  

This is an open call to all artists 18 years of age and older, living in the state of Georgia.  There is a $35 non-refundable entrance fee with up to $5,000 in awards to be given out. All artists are requested to submit digital images (or video if new media) of 3 recent works which best represent their practice. Artists whose work is selected should be prepared to exhibit any or all of their submitted works, as jurors may select just one, or they may choose multiple works from each artist. As proven in past exhibitions, Gathered VI will be an exciting and thoughtful representation of the art that Georgia artists are currently producing.
