Call for art

Ori Gallery is looking for queer/trans/artists of color between the ages of 12-23 to participate in our August exhibition, to take their place in the wider conversations of the art world. We seek to elevate the voices of young folks who have something to say & to express. Ironically, those who are most impacted by the decisions we as a society make today are left out of cultural discourse. This exhibition will facilitate & continue the dialogue in what it means for young folk to cultivate an artistic practice. We are open to communicating with adults/guardians/caregivers on behalf of youth if necessary.
