Collar Works Flat Files

Submissions are now closed. Please like us on Facebook for upcoming opportunities.

In its inaugural year, Collar Works’ Flat File aims to exhibit a range of diverse, two-dimensional works by emerging and underrepresented artists. The mission of the program is to promote selected artists’ work, create a space for affordable art, enhance current exhibition opportunities, and expand + enrich the Collar Works community. All works featured are sized 16”x22” or below and priced under $300. Individual works from the Flat File will be selectively highlighted throughout the year in the gallery, and online. Gallery visitors will be able to view and purchase works in the Collar Works Flat File Program on an ongoing basis. The 2019-2020 program will run for one full year, from September 2019 through August 2020.

This year’s juror is painter + educator, Deborah Zlotsky. A 2019 Guggenheim fellow, Zlotsky is represented by Markel Fine Arts in New York and Robischon Gallery in Denver. She teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design.

In September 2019, selections from the season’s program will be included in a kick-off event in the Flat File space.
