About Arcadia Contemporary

Arcadia was founded in 2001 with a mission to exhibit highly skilled, representational artists. Originally located in the center of Manhattan’s creative, Soho District, the gallery attained international renown for featuring works that revealed their creators’ ability to paint and draw well in concert with unique, signature styles.

In 2014 Arcadia evolved into Arcadia Contemporary. This shift of name and focus was motivated by the gallery's desire to spotlight artists utilizing timeless painting and drawing skills while creating artworks reflective of the contemporary world.

In 2016 Arcadia Contemporary relocated to Culver City, California. The gallery, now located in the bustling Town Plaza area of Downtown Culver City, finds itself adjacent to the famous, Sony Culver Studios and across a pedestrian courtyard from the Charlie Chaplin-built, historic Culver Hotel.

While Arcadia Contemporary finds itself in the epicenter of the Culver Arts District and the motion picture industry, it remains impervious to the varying conceptual and stylistic shifts often occurring in the contemporary art world. Arcadia Contemporary proudly maintains its vision to present virtuoso, realist painting, drawing and sculpture by artists who are creating genuinely unique and timeless works.

Do not submit if you do not understand the guidelines. First and foremost all artists accepted to shows are responsible for the shipping to and from the gallery. No exceptions.

General Guidelines
-Please do not submit the same artwork to more than one call at a time. 
-Only submit artwork which fits the theme prepared by the editor/curator.
-Submit high resolution images 300 DPI with a minimum of 1200 pixels wide.
-Images should be in JPG format RGB color and not TIFF or any other format.
-Title your folders with your first and last name and add the name of the call. For example Didi_ Menendez_Chevere. Images should also include your name including the title, medium, size, and year. For example: Didi_Menendez_Chevere_oiloncanvas_10x8inches_2017.
-Place a text file with your contact information including your email address and web site along the images inside the folder. If the text file is missing with your contact information then we will not be able to reach out to you.
-We will only contact you if your work is accepted for publication.

What happens upon acceptance.
Artists are responsible for the shipping of their work to and from the gallery.
You will be contacted by the publisher and/or the curator that your work has been accepted and will be asked for additional materials which may consist of additional images and copy. 
- An artist agreement for publication and/or group show will be provided upon acceptance. All email correspondence will serve as confirmation of acceptance for publication and/or group show.
- Missed deadline for publication will exclude artists from the show. In other words, if you are not in the publication, you are not in the show.

How to prepare for publication and/or PA group shows.
In anticipation for acceptance or general practice artists should consider having some of items ready for publication. Some of these items may include an updated CV, a narrative short bio, high resolution images of the artwork, new photos of yourself for exclusive use of PoetsArtists, general artist statements and information about the individual works submitted. Please note that our publisher may also ask for videos or process statements.

Anthologies and special end-of-the-year publications.
A suggestion is to organize a desktop folder for specific use of PoetsArtists should your work be requested for an anthology. This is good practice in general.
