How to participate as an artist

  • Visual
  • Performance
  • Filmmakers
  • Installation Artist
participate

Artists are free to do what they wish within their designated space — paint the walls, turn out the lights, or simply tack up their artwork. Because Artomatic events are usually held in an office building, the spaces are as unconventional as the art and they may include large lounges, meeting rooms, kitchens and especially challenging spaces such as closets. Guidelines are provided for the event and more information will be provided after registration.

What does "unjuried" mean? It means anyone who can pay a modest fee to cover expenses can exhibit at Artomatic. It means a lower barrier to entry, no overarching theme or goal, and a huge variety of media. Paintings and photography are the most popular, but anything goes: sculpture, fiber art, videos, multimedia installations, collages, wearable art, and the impossible to categorize. Because anything goes, you’ll get to see plenty of experiments and risk-taking.

Get Involved

Because Artomatic is a non-profit and there is no admission fee for the public to enter our events, we rely on volunteers to serve as staff for our events. Staff members welcome the public, advertise our events, run security and perform a variety of other duties to ensure a successful event.
