Painting The Figure Now 2019

July to September 2019

Wausau Museum Of Contemporary Art


Zhou B Art Center, Chicago

DEADLINE: April 15, 2019

Publication and Traveling Exhibition


This is an invitational and open call for publication and exhibition at the Wausau Museum Of Contemporary Art and Zhou B Art Center in Chicago. The 2019 season has several curators inviting artists to participate in the publication. All the invited artists will be published in a special edition of PoetsArtists with many of the curators writing about their selections.

The museum directors of each venue (David Hummer and Sergio Gomez) will then choose from all the published works which will hang in their venue.

Invited artists and those accepted from the open call from our members will all be published. The venue directors will then select from the publication which works will hang. If your work is selected to hang in both, it will be transported from WMOCA to ZBAC. Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the venue where the work is hanging unless it sells. We will notify all accepted artists for the publication and whose work will be hanging sometime after the deadline. Furthermore, if your work is not selected to be hung at either venue, we will offer the selected published artists an option to have the work available through on online exclusive exhibition on the Zhou B Art Center’s Artsy and/or Artnet page. Agreements from both venues will be sent to all the artists. Their commission structure will be in place. It will vary so please make sure to read the agreements carefully.

Please note that if your work is selected to exhibit by both venues the artwork will hang for approximately 6 months. You have an option to choose both venues or one. See submission form.

The window of opportunity to the general public to submit is now closed.

If you are a yearly member, Patreon member, or monthly subscriber, please use our universal form to submit your entries.
