“Summer of Love” Bay Area Juried Exhibition
DEADLINE: March 20th, 2017
The year 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love in San Francisco.
The Summer of Love refers to the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 young people converged on Haight-Ashbury, making San Francisco the epicenter of the hippie revolution and a melting pot of music, psychedelic drugs, sexual freedom, creative expression, and politics.
Arc Gallery announces “Summer of Love,” a Bay Area call for art. This exhibition pays tribute to the 1967 Summer of Love and celebrates it’s 50th anniversary. Bay Area artists are invited to submit works that celebrate or reimagine the brief period in 1967 that was the Summer of Love. Artists may explore these themes: Peace, Love, Freedom; social movements that arose out of the Summer of Love such as Anti-war, Environmental, Free Speech, Black Power, Women’s Movement, Gay Rights, Sexual Revolution, Farm Workers, Student Movement, etc; anti-establishment attitudes; hippies and flower children; psychedelia; 1967 bands and music; pop art & op art; fiber art incorporating tie-dye, macramé, embroidery or beading; poster art; and artwork utilizing fonts popular in that era. Help us recreate and celebrate the amazing revolution that started in the Haight-Ashbury and changed the world forever.

“Flora & Fauna” National Juried Exhibition 2017 - at Arc Gallery
DEADLINE: April 24th, 2017
What plants or animals inhabit your Earthly Paradise? Are they life forms native to where you live or exotic flora and fauna from far reaches of the planet? Would you bring back extinct species, import life forms from other galaxies, or create phantasmagorical plants and animals from your imagination? Where do humans fit into your paradise? We welcome artists whose concerns are ecology-based as well as those whose subject matter is traditionally flora, fauna or landscapes. You are invited to display your technical prowess in realism, abstraction or fantasy. We are seeking wide-ranging interpretations that will transform our gallery into a virtual Shangri-La.

“Luminous” National Juried Exhibition 2017 - at Arc Gallery
DEADLINE: September 18th, 2017
We are seeking work that captures the elusive magic of the word, “luminous.” How do you depict a glowing from within, that which reflects light, or something illuminated or bathed in light? Subjects may encompass the brightness of a celestial object, eyes glowing with love, an ardent heart, a halo of light, radiant power, something ablaze, or objects that are shimmery, sparkling, glistening, lustrous, incandescent. Surprise us with your interpretation.
