6×6 art sought from all creatives

No artistic background needed

SUBMISSION DEADLINE (mailed): Tuesday, April 11, 2023

We’re activating the ol’ Call for Art Megaphone for one of the more unique calls we publish: the annual RoCo 6×6.

Persons with—or without—an artistic background are invited to submit a 6-in. by 6-in. piece of art to the Rochester (New York) Contemporary Art Center’s annual exhibition of small art. From their email to Hub HQ:

6×6 has long been RoCo’s only fundraiser ever since we originated the concept and brand. This exhibition is open to all creative peoples of all ages—no artistic background needed! All artworks are accepted and displayed both in our gallery space and online. Learn more about 6×6 at roco6x6.org and on social media using #roco6x6 and @roco137. You can also visit our Facebook event for 6×6.

Each artist may enter up to four artworks of any medium (2D or 3D). Artworks must be six inches square and signed only on the back, to be exhibited anonymously. Participation is free. All artworks will be exhibited and for sale to the public for $20 each to benefit RoCo. Artists’ names will be revealed to the buyer upon purchase and all artworks remain on display through the end of the exhibition. Limit four artworks per school or school group (no limit for colleges).

#SCartists have until Tuesday, April 11 to get those free submissions in for the 2023 show. Call or email with any questions: 585. 461.2222 or info@rochestercontemporary.org.
