Call for Entry

All Media Exhibition, juried by Valerie Mercer, Call for Entry

Detroit Artists Market is looking for DAM artist members to submit works through Saturday, June 26 in all media formats to the All Media Exhibition, juried by Valerie Mercer, curator of African American Art and Head of the General Motors Center for African American Art at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Last year, Mercer curated the DIA’s exhibition Detroit Collects: Selections of African American Art from Private Collections, a show that was praised by critics and attended by 62,000 visitors. Mercer’s participation in DAM’s All Media Show signifies a long history of collaboration between the DIA and DAM, dating back to 1943 when noted DIA Director William Valentiner presented lectures at DAM. The All Media Exhibition runs through August 13 – September 11, 2021.

There is a non-refundable jury fee of $10 to participate in the All Media Exhibition call for entry. You may submit up to 3 works inside of your one entry. Do not submit separate entries, as you will be charged a non-refundable $10 jury fee once per entry.

In order to be an exhibiting artist you must have an active membership. You may purchase a new membership or membership renewal by clicking on the membership box at checkout when you submit your entry. DAM is a regional gallery and memberships are for artists living and working in MI.

There is no size limit on works, but 2-D pieces must be equipped with hanging hardware. DAM reserves the right to exclude accepted work from the exhibition if they are not ready to hang upon delivery to the gallery.
