NEW!  Open Call for Small Group Show " Under the Influence" will open in July.  
OPENING DATE Friday, August 17th, 6:30-8:30pm. DETAILS BELOW

Have you ever felt inspired by another artist? Is there an artist whose work you covet? Whose style you admire? Here’s your chance to pay homage!

Whether it’s a particular artist, painting, genre or style you’re taken with, Argyle Fine Art invites you to submit to our “Under the Influence Show”. This show will feature works that take inspiration from your favourite artist(s). Are you drawn to the vibrant hues of the Fauvists? The clear direction of Van Gogh’s brush stokes? Maybe you fancy a classic vanitas or an allegorical painting? Or the clear distinction of Caravaggio’s dramatic light and dark? Whatever it may be, we’re excited to see what you come up with! 

We’re not looking for reproductions of these works, but rather a piece of original art that has been influenced by them, but is still entirely your own! This show is open call and open to all types of mediums and submissions (paintings, sculptures, etc.)

To submit to the show email, Subject line: Under the Influence Submission. Please include your name and contact information, title of work(s), size in inches, mediums and surfaces (ie acrylic on canvas), and who or what piece influenced your submission. Work must be new and not previously exhibited or displayed elsewhere. Please email .jpg images as attachments (do not drag and embed images in email please) and name files with your last name and title of the piece. You may submit up to 5 pieces.
