HOBA House Exhibitions (2021)

Open Call for Entries

This gallery is open to all forms of visual art. THIS IS AN OPEN CALL for INSTALLATION ART EXHIBITIONS. Artists are required to create an immersive experience that will transform the space from its original form into the mind of the featured artist using their own materials, or materials that HOBA has provided.

If selected, the curator at HOBA House will reach out via email to schedule a meeting (ZOOM) to discuss ideas, expectations, answer questions, etc. We will then select the time frame of which your exhibition will be featured in the gallery.

 

SUBMISSION AND EXHIBITION AGREEMENT TERMS

 

ELIGIBILITY

This exhibit is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works by the artist.

 

MEDIA

Open to all traditional and non-traditional 2D and 3D media, music, and environment enhancement.

We can provide a projector, sound equipment, etc.

 

SIZE LIMIT

There are no size restrictions on submissions other than what can fit in our spaces, on our walls, and through our door. We also have a backyard (is currently being re-imagined as a permaculture designed garden) that you may utilize for installations, within the limits of our productivity.

 

DATE RESTRICTIONS

There are no requirements on time frame when submitted works must have been made. Our jury process does not consider the date of the work when selecting works for exhibit. If this page is active, then we are currently accepting entries.

 

SUBMITTING WORK

 

ENTRY FEE

$5 for up to three entries submitted. Fees are non-refundable. Entry fee must be paid by credit card via PayPal. (If paying by PayPal PLEASE use the paypal link provided on the page that follows the submission of the online entry form.)

 

Any fee payment must reference your name, or we must be notified if another party is paying your fee.

 

All proceeds from entry fees fund project-related expenses.

 

SUBMISSION OF IMAGES

We only accept digital images/files for consideration. See specifications below.

 

Entry images must meet the following specifications:

 

FILE NAMING

All entry files (regardless of type or media) must be named with artist's last name (underscore) first name, followed by the entry number as noted on the entry form (i.e. Jones_Mike_1.jpg). Please DO NOT include any other information in the file name, such as title of work, etc. Please do not include detailed photos on the entry form.

The image files should be in HIGH QUALITY JPEG format, images should be no smaller than 1000 pixels in any direction (about 13”) and 72dpi. This should result in most image files ranging from 700kb to 2mb in file size but this is only approximate.

Images must be oriented properly (i.e. top of image is top of artwork) and should not include text info or borders that are not part of the actual work. Any essential information regarding the nature of entries should be included in the notes section for each work on the entry form.

 

VIDEO

All video or interactive submissions, or video details illustrating an entry should be in the form of a link to a viewable online copy of each work AND a single representative jpeg image. The work should be shown online in its full length. It is understood that online versions of video files may be lower quality than those expected for exhibition in the gallery due to compression and Internet formatting.

 

Note that a jpeg still image should still be submitted to represent the entry in addition to the video material, and this file name should include the term 'video'. Please email us if you have any uncertainty about this HOBAGallery502@gmail.com

Video links should link directly to online or downloadable content that does NOT require a login, password or membership to view. These may be in the form of Youtube, Vimeo, Dropbox, or other similar links.

 

AGREEMENT TO PARTICIPATE
