Rosalux Gallery

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Open Door is Rosalux Gallery’s annual open call exhibition which is on display for the month of December.  Open Door is an exciting opportunity for artists outside of our collective to showcase their work in the gallery.  Typically, this exhibition is reviewed and receives extensive press coverage from local media and is one of our best attended events of the year.  Open Door is open to all North American residents working in any 2D/ 3D media and video. Only works completed within the past two years are eligible for submission.


Rosalux Gallery is Minnesota’s longest running collective art gallery which was originally founded in February 2002. Rosalux is home to a roster of 18 contemporary visual Minnesota artists whose work can be found in major collections all over the world, many of whom have received prestigious grants, residencies, and awards recognizing their accomplishments as individual artists with a unique point of view.  The collective’s purpose is to create an exhibition environment which helps to encourage the careers of our artists by promoting & showcasing their works in a manner best suiting their needs as visual artists without restricting their creative needs. Over the years, Rosalux has been home to nearly 100 local artists, helping to build a solid foundation for their careers as art professionals and building a community dedicated to assisting these artists in meeting their creative goals and reaching new audiences.
