Artist Open Calls

Are you an artist looking for opportunities to showcase your work? Emerge is committed to supporting local artists and providing a platform for their creativity. 

Each year Emerge has opportunities for local artists to submit work to a group show, usually revolving around a specific event or theme. Below is a list of all upcoming calls for artists in the 2024/25 season. This will be updated throughout the year as more open. 

If you would like to submit a proposal for a show outside of our regular open calls, please fill out our Show Proposal form. 

Please read Emerge's Photo Submission Guide prior to submitting work.
