Blue Star Contemporary is pleased to offer open call opportunities to artists nationally and internationally. Artists are invited to submit a portfolio of their work and be considered for future exhibition opportunities. Exhibitions in development draw from the highest-rated artists. Additionally, new exhibition concepts arise from trends and themes observed through the open call. *Please note being rated in the top 20 does not guarantee an exhibition.

Your submitted portfolio should give us an understanding of visual and conceptual themes, and your voice as an artist. Please note this is not an exhibition proposal. BSC staff is interested in working collaboratively with artists to figure out what work suits our organization, audience, and the artist’s creative vision.

For detailed application guidelines and information on the support BSC offers to exhibiting artists, please download the guidelines packet.

Contact information: Direct questions regarding the submission process or the open call to Jacqueline Saragoza McGilvray, Curator and Exhibitions Manager by phone at 210-227-6960 or email at jack@bluestarcontemporary.org.
