Create! Magazine is thrilled to invite visual artists to submit their work for an online exhibition in collaboration with PxP Contemporary.

This open call is an opportunity to submit your work for consideration for a curated virtual group show. If chosen, you’ll have your works listed for sale through PxP Contemporary and be promoted to our broad audience of international readers and followers. Select artists will be invited for exclusive online interviews which will be shared via Create! Magazine’s online channels.

Create! Magazine was originally published in 2013 out of the need for emerging artists to showcase their work. Through collaborations with leading galleries, art fairs, curators, and art world professionals, we have grown into a powerful platform that is deeply committed to supporting emerging artists on their path to success and helping them achieve greater visibility in the art world.

This professionally curated exhibition will be made available to viewers and collectors virtually through our website. We will highlight individual selected works by each artist from the show on our social media profiles: Instagram 128k+ followers and Facebook 54k+ followers.

Create! Magazine has previously partnered with Art Miami Fairs, Affordable Art Fair, The Jealous Curator, Art Girl Rising, and more. We have curated exhibitions in national universities and galleries and are now excited to extend this opportunity to our international community of artists online.

Please note that there is a curatorial fee that goes towards supporting our community and helping provide opportunities for artists, writers, and curators. If you are unable to pay at this time, we understand and urge you to apply to our blog instead. Remember that you may always submit to our blog for free, and we will be happy to review your work. Send 3-5 images, your artist biography, statement, and website to [email protected].
