Artist Opportunities 2021

Interesting in showing your art with us? Follow us @urbanartsgallery on Facebook and Instagram to find our about calls for art when they come up. You can also subscribe to our email list to get emails about calls for art. We typically seek art to fill our monthly shows for the following year and new boutique artists between November and December.

“SLC Queer” is a collection of art made by local LGBTQIA+ artists. The art itself does not necessarily need to focus on gender identity (although it would be wonderfully appropriate if it did). This exhibit is simply intended to support artists in this community, regardless of subject matter.

The deadline to submit is May 12th, 2021. We will notify you of our decision via email no later than May 19th, 2021.

“ARTifacts of Sound” is a collection of music-themed art. This includes portraits of famous musicians, stylized interpretations of instruments, and more.

Abstract work inspired by music will be considered, but priority will be given to work that recognizably depicts musicians, instruments, performances, etc.

You may submit multiple pieces for consideration.

The deadline to submit is June 16th, 2021. We will notify you of our decision via email no later than June 23rd, 2021.

Showing your skate deck is easy. Just bring your art created with a skate deck to the gallery between August 1st and August 29th during business hours and we’ll include it in the Skate Deck Challenge. The Skate Deck Show will hang from August 31st to October 3rd. The Skate Deck Challenge will take place on Friday, September 3rd during the Night Market of the Urban Arts Festival.

Other ways to get your art in the gallery


Connect is a free monthly pop-up art exhibit that invites all visual artists to showcase their art (up to two pieces). Helpful connections and friendships are made as artists learn skills necessary for art careers, gained through lectures, workshops, and activities. Attendees complete the evening by voting for their favorite art, an experience which helps prepare and educate the participating artists.

The Urban Arts Gallery hosts Connect events every 2nd Friday of the month. If your art is selected through the voting process you get to hang it up in the gallery until the next connect event.
