Open Door: Call for Artists

OPEN DOOR Fourteen (December 7th – 30th, 2018) 

Rosalux Gallery (Minneapolis, MN) announces a national call for  entries for it’s 14th annual Open Door juried group exhibition.  Open to  all North American residents working in any 2D/ 3D media. 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.
