Call for Art: Touchy Feely


In this moment of social distance, our safest option is to stay away from others. It’s a necessary precaution, but many are already experiencing the feelings of isolation and disconnection that this remoteness can cause. To remind us of the community we have, and will one day see again, Gallery 263 invites Massachusetts-based artists and students to submit artwork for an online showcase titled Touchy Feely.

In Touchy Feely, our website will host a digital exhibition where artists can share their latest work and support the belief that, even as we are sequestered, a thriving art community still stands strong.

Artists’ preferred contact information, along with the price of each work, will be displayed with each image to facilitate purchases directly through the artist.

Important information

Artwork Size Restrictions & Details:

Your photographed artwork should be cropped neatly to showcase your work in the simplest, clearest way. Please do not include images of in-progress works or environmental studio photos in your submission. Artist’s can submit up to three, high-resolution images for consideration; at least one image will be included in the digital exhibition. Images should be at least 2MB with 2000 pixels as your maximum dimension, no larger than 5MB per image. Gallery 263 reserves the right to decline work that does not meet the upload requirements or may be seen as offensive in content.

Sale of Work

Any inquiries of purchasing artwork will be directed towards the artist’s contact information.  Gallery 263 does not require a percentage of the sale, but a small donation is encouraged. As a small nonprofit art space, we depend on our communities’ support to keep our programs running, our staff supported, and our mission-driven impact flourishing.

There is no submission fee required to participate in this exhibition!
