connection n.1. act of connecting ; state of being connected

In our fast pace, rapidly changing world, BECA gallery has been established as a bridge to and for emerging contemporary art.

The traditional Inuit view of the world is one of intrinsic connections between all things: whether they are the integral ones of family ties, the dynamics of nature and the landscape or the spirit world. Within other cultures, today’s technologies along with the ease of global movement enable new, previously unknown, connections to manifest themselves.

This call is open to all visual artists without representation in New Orleans, LA working in 2-D and 3-D media including painting, sculpture, mixed-media, drawing, printmaking, fiber, textiles, photography, digital art, graphics, etc. (We are currently unable to accept performance art, film or video submissions.) Artists must be a minimum of 18 years of age.

You may submit up to 3 images of your artwork for a fee of $20 US. If you wish to submit more than 3 images please include $5 US for each additional image. Fee payment should be made by check or money order in US funds payable to ‘BECA gallery’ and included with your submission.

Images of artwork being submitted for consideration must be in jpeg format sized at 10 inches in either height and/or width and should be at 72dpi on a PC formatted CD. (We love macs but don't have one). If you are submitting 3-D work, you may include 1 additional detail or alternative view image per work submitted at no additional charge. If you have further questions regarding image submission please email .

All artists will be notified of the selection results via email on January 7, 2008.

All selected artworks will be subject to a 50% commission on sales made by BECA
