Submissions are open for Re-Union, our second group art show

Covid-19 derailed our first group show, the Union. Scheduled for March 28 2020, we had to cancel as the country went into lockdown. Now that things are looking up, we’re back with the Re-Union, a bigger and better show.

Back in September 2019, when we first sat around a table and discussed all the things we wished we could see more of in the Long Beach art scene, we ended with a laundry list of ideas.

Art shows were definitely on the short list of ideas; we never thought we’d host our first show so soon after launching Art Clout. If things had gone according to plan, it would have been a mere six months after inception.

Introducing Re-Union, a group art show to celebrate visual arts in Long Beach. The show will be held November 13 – 21, 2021, at the Catalyst Art Gallery on Pine Avenue.

If you are a resident of or have a studio in either Long Beach, Lakewood, or San Pedro and you’d like to be considered for the show, please read through our full submission guidelines (below). If you have any questions, reach out to us at ArtCloutLB[at]gmail[dot]com.

Submission Deadline: 10/8/21
