Call For New Mexico Artists For Upcoming Exhibit of the Human Form

The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery is seeking artists to participate in an upcoming exhibition, “Incarnate”, featuring New Mexico artists whose work explores and celebrates the human form. The human figure is one of the most persistent themes in the visual arts. It is a challenge for artists, requiring technical skill and understanding of musculature and movement. At one point in their work, most artists will explore the figure, regardless of it becoming a feature in their work. The intent of this exhibit is to encourage local visual artists to explore the human form in myriad representations. Portrait artists, figurative sculptors, video artists, photographers and all artists interested in the theme are encouraged to submit their portfolios in order to be considered for inclusion in this sensual, intriguing exhibit. This exhibit will feature approximately 30 studies of the human form created by local artists.

The Community Gallery is planning the exhibit to run from March through May 2014. Artists are asked to provide portfolios of previous work for review no later than October 18, 2013. Artists will be notified of their participation by the end of November, 2013.

Interested artists should submit a portfolio of their work to Rod Lambert, Community Gallery Manager. Portfolios should consist of 5-10 printed images of the artist’s work on standard digital print paper and an artist statement, resume and/or bio. Please be sure to include a cover letter stating your interest in being considered for “Incarnate” as well as complete contact information Portfolios should be addressed to Community Gallery, PO Box 909, Santa Fe, NM 87504. Portfolios must be received by September 27, 2013 for consideration.

The Community Gallery promotes and exhibits the work of New Mexico artists and artisans, with the emphasis on Santa Fe, through exhibitions, professional training and community involvement in the arts. For more information about the Community Gallery, visit, send an email to or call 505-955-6705.
