Open Door: Call for Artists

OPEN DOOR ELEVEN (December 5th – 27th, 2015)

Rosalux Gallery (Minneapolis, MN) announces a national call for entries for it’s 10th annual Open Door juried group exhibition.  Open to all US residents working in any 2D/ 3D media except video. Only works completed within the past two years are eligible.


Rosalux is a cooperative art gallery that was founded in Minneapolis in 2002. The gallery is home to twenty four artists whose work is well known both nationally and internationally, featured in various major collections, and who have individually received numerous prestigious awards and grant recognitions.  The gallery is located in the Van Buren Building in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District.  Open Door is an exciting opportunity for non-member artists to showcase their work in the gallery.  Typically, this exhibition is reviewed and receives extensive press coverage.
