Calls for Artists

Now until April 6th, The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery is inviting artists to submit to their OPEN CALL.

The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery currently seeks submissions by painters, photographers, sculptors, printmakers, muralists, installation and new media artists to support our developing advisory services and future projects. Individual art works will not be selected from the call; rather, they will invite selected artists to be non-exclusively represented by the Advisory.  Chosen Advisory artists will work with the gallery to sell existing works or to create commissioned pieces specific to future clients’ needs.
