call for art

Cleveland West Art League invites our members to submit work for our annual unjuried, uncensored Tall Walls exhibition, hosted by Negative Space in their new gallery and performance venue. This group exhibition is open to all current members of CWAL. If you're not a member (or your membership has lapsed), you may join here: or pay the $30 annual membership fee when you drop off your artwork. This is a great opportunity to sell your work and connect with the community.

Guidelines: Artists may submit up to two pieces of 2-D or 3-D art created within the past two years and not previously shown at Tall Walls. All work must be ready to hang at the time of drop-off. (A wire, hook, or other appropriate means of hanging must be present.) We have a limited number of pedestals, so you may wish to bring your own if you need one. CWAL takes a 30% commission from all sales. The artist will be asked to complete a brief registration form and provide label information including: name, title, medium, and price.

There are two events in conjunction with Tall Walls:
Friday, Nov. 10, 6-9 pm  Fundraising Benefit and Preview Party featuring live music, food and a cash bar. $15 tickets available below.

Saturday, Nov. 11, 7-9 pm, join us for the public Opening Reception of Tall Walls with music courtesy of Negative Space's monthly Jam Night. (All musicians welcome to join in the fun!)

Artwork Drop-off dates:
Saturday, Nov. 4, 11:00-2:00 pm.
Monday, Nov. 6, 5-7 pm.

Artwork Pick-up dates:
Monday, Nov. 13, 5-7 pm.
Tuesday, Nov. 14, 10-2 pm.

Negative Space is in the Asian Town Center. The best way to get there is to head South on E. 38th off Superior. Then take the second or third left turn into the parking lot. Negative Space is on the second floor.
