For Artists! (at least for those who have never before shown

©POP Gallery is proud to reprise the hugely successful
twist on the vanity gallery concept, ©POPpor2nity,
with an IMMEDIATE CALL FOR ARTISTS, now through December 2.
For the second juried, all-media exhibit, appropriately entitled,
Opening /Artists Reception: Saturday, December 13, from
7PM - 10PM.
Its ©POPpor2nity The second all-media call
for artists and exhibit for all artists who have never shown
at the gallery before. For a nominal submission fee every
©POPpor2nity artist will be featured in arguably Detroits
most popular and influential and ground-breaking gallery,
©POP, with an opening reception for the artists of ©POPpor2nity
on Saturday, December 13 from 6 PM until 10 PM. Participants

Its Humble To Be Good
artist friendly tweaking of the vanity gallery
concept, whereby galleries lease space to select artists,
a common practice in New York City Galleries, gives every
potential artist a chance to exhibit up to 3 pieces for a
nominal fee. The only problem is that it is usually the fee
is an exorbitant amount of money for an artist to rent the
entire gallery- and still have to cut the gallery in a healthy
chunk of the sale. With ©Poppor2nity, many fledgling
or unknown artists get a chance to exhibit in a world-class
gallery at only a fraction of the normal vanity fee,
while getting an unheard-of 90% of the sale and a chance to
compete for their own 4 person exhibit later next year.
and receive 90% of the proceeds upon sale!
Every artist can submit and potentially exhibit up to 3 pieces
of wall-hung or free standing sculptural art (conceptual and
Installation art to be judged on space required) and if sold,
the artist will receive 90% of the proceeds of the sale in
an exhibit, which will commence, Saturday, December 13 at
detailed and constructive advise from an experienced industry
©POP, one of the first galleries anywhere dedicated to
the once underground and now internationally renowned pop
culture art movement, will critique every submission with
at least a 3000 + word summation of the artists submissions.
On a first come-first served basis, ©POP will choose
a limited number of artists culled through MySpace, Deviant
Art, various art blogs and the local media, allowing up to
3 pieces (size restrictions apply) and for a nominal submission
fee (anywhere from $125 to $225 depending on the amount of
pieces accepted) to become part of this exciting array of
various media and styles. ©POPportunity in 2007 changed
the way many galleries do business by rethinking the vanity
gallery concept to great success through sales and recognition
for all participants. Now, with the economic situation putting
the squeeze on everyones pocketbook, ©POP gives
artists the opportunity to sell their work at reduced prices
to the public while maintaining their usual or even increased
commission profit! Everyone benefits! Other galleries may
be closing, art sales may be in a slump and our core local
industry may be in jeopardy, but once again ©POP finds
a way to offer artists and patrons greater opportunity while
maintaining the high level of quality and innovation everyone
has come to expect for almost fifteen years from this renowned
