Open call for entries for an un-juried show featuring digital art and photography: All entries
recieved by the deadline will be exhibited in our gallery arranged mural-like, edge to edge.
During the exhibition the images and artist information will be available for gallery visitors to
view in a special artist portfolio which will remain in the gallery for public viewing. Prints can
be made available to buyers by directly contacting the artist. Entrants submit two (2) prints of
a single original work, (one image for the wall, a second for the portfolio) and should be printed
from their home computer. All styles of 2D artwork and photography where digital processes of any
kind were integral to the creation of the images are acceptable. We are interested in the
immediacy with which work can be created through digital means in our contemporary culture. This
show represents a literal snapshot of a moment in art history where the creation of Art has been
dymistified, and is in the hands of the many, and not just a select chosen few. The show will be
widely promoted and will include a reception for the artists.
This call is international, and open to all. ALL WORK GUARANTEED EXHIBITION.

Gallery Information: Gallery 25, located in Fresno, California is one of the oldest cooperative
galleries in the country. Formed in 1974, the Gallery has been a forum for contemporary art since
its inception. The origins are in the feminist art movement of the early 1970’s. In 1970,
California State University’s Art Department developed one of the first feminist art education
programs in the country. This program was brought into existence by visiting artist Judy Chicago
who was searching for a place to develop her ideas for the education of women artists. After
Chicago’s departure, the program became an integral part of the art curriculum under the
leadership of art professor Joyce Aiken. Located in a beautifully restored building at the corner
of Van Ness and Mono Street, Gallery 25 anchors the west end of block populated by several art
galleries and artists studios in the heart of downtown Fresno.
