This exhibit is open to all artists! All work will be displayed if it fits the call below. Each submitted piece should be labelled and come with a $20 entry fee.

Pantone: Little Boy Blue invites all artists to create works of art that are predominantly the color, Little Boy Blue. This open call welcomes artists of all levels and mediums. This exhibit is a fundraiser for the gallery and an opportunity to bring together artists who have and have not shown at USG. The exact color was selected through online vote based on colors from the Pantone Spring Color Forecast. You can visit Pantone’s website for more information. The name of the color is Little Boy Blue, which will produce four swatches. Pantone 16-4132 TCX is the exact one we are sharing the RGB information on, which is 110 162 213. We know everyone’s screens are slightly different and not all calibrated the same. Please try to be as close to the selected color as possible.
You work should be predominantly this color. That statement is up for interpretation, but we have some suggestions. If you have a large focal point, you could make it Little Boy Blue. You could use values of Little Boy Blue for an entire work. This color needs to stand out in your work.
Bring your completed work to the gallery between March 29-31 (or ship it to arrive by March 31, but no earlier than March 24). Work should clearly have your name, the title, a price or not for sale, and your email and phone number on the back of the piece. Minors should have their parent or guardians’ information on the back of the piece as well. When you drop off the piece, you will be asked to give your name and pay your submission fee if you have not already done so.
