The EGG Gallery is seeking artistic types of all disciplines and career levels, who wish to exhibit and sell their creations for the “Cultures” event which takes place on weekends in March of 2018. Artists wishing to exhibit cohesive and cultural creations are especially encouraged to apply.

“This event is unique in that we usually host similar events at places like the Kansas City Museum, but it is currently being renovated, so we are hosting this event at the EGG gallery, and simply calling it ‘Cultures,’” said Rebecca Koop, Events Director for the Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.

The event is open to all creative types including painters, pottery creators, writers, poets, painters, even jewelry makers.

To submit a proposal, artists would need to write a short biography, a resume, portfolio or website links to past works, a 100-200 word description of the creations that will be displayed, as well as presentation parameters within a 10×10 space. Proposals should also include which weekend in March they prefer to exhibit their art and 1-6 images of the artwork that is intended for display. Contact information must be included in the submitted proposal. Submissions must be emailed to with the subject line “OPEN CALL CULTURES March 2018.” Proposals will only be accepted until January 31, 2018. Upon acceptance of submitted proposal, artists will be required to pay a non-refundable $50 reservation fee.
The gallery will do what it can to fill the artist’s preferred weekends but the spaces available are on a first-come, first-served basis. There are approximately eight spaces with 10×10 dimensions available per weekend.

The EGG gallery is located at 2659 Independence Blvd. The Northeast Chamber of Commerce will provide gallery space and advertisement for the event via social media posts and signage for the event.

The EGG gallery is part of an incubation program intended to help small businesses get started by offering them a brick and mortar space from which they can sell their wares. More than that, the program assists the budding businesses with helpful advice and information such as tax assistance.

“They have the products, we offer the space,” said Koop. “We also have a good relationship with KC BizCare, which gives us additional resources for support.”

The “Cultures” event will run for four weekends in March. Hours on those weekends will be: Fridays, from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Sundays from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
