Power in Numbers is back! For one weekend only, the Gallery Nucleus will feature all traditional work in a 5 x 7 postcard format show. Featuring artwork from over 100 artists, this will be a fantastic way to acquire some original art! The show will be cash and carry, meaning each purchased piece will be immediately removed from the show to be taken home.
Starting now until August 9th, 2022, Gallery Nucleus will be accepting submissions for our annual open call show! Last year we had hundreds of entries, and we're hoping to get even bigger this year. Please read below for artist guidelines and submission rules.
Last year for our Power in Numbers 6 show, we featured over 350 pieces of art, a great majority from artists who participated in our open submissions process. This year we're pleased to accept open submission entries for Power in Numbers: 2022 as well. Show us what you've got!
