Emerging gallery programs, project spaces, and artists are invited to apply for the Berliner Liste 2016 fair.
Deadline: 30 Jun 2016
The 13th edition of Berliner Liste will be held from September 15th to 18th, 2016, parallel to Berlin Art Week, in the legendary Kraftwerk Berlin. The unique, raw, and urban atmosphere of Kraftwerk in Berlin Mitte, the former East Berlin power station, is the ideal location for Berlin’s oldest and biggest art fair.
Unlike most of the major art fairs which are open mainly to art galleries, Berliner Liste 2016 offers individual artists and photographers access to a large and long-established art market. As an exhibitor, artists will get the opportunity to perform side by side with galleries and project spaces, present art to an audience of specialists as well as to the general public, and offer works for sale.
As a forum for emerging, international art at affordable prices, the Berliner Liste attracts every year a wider audience. 123 exhibitors from 23 countries presented their work to more than 11,000 young collectors, art lovers, and fans at last year’s show.

Artists from across Australia are invited to enter the Mandorla Art Award 2016 from the Mandorla Centre for Inner Peace.
Deadline: 2 May 2016
The winning artwork receives $25,000 and joins the likes of Julie Dowling, Theo Koning, Brian McKay, and Paul Kaptein in our collection.
This prestigious award has a major prize of $25,000 and two highly commended awards of $5,000 each. Finalists will be exhibited at Linton & Kay Galleries in Perth CBD from July 15 – 23. A selection of these works will also be exhibited at New Norcia Museum and Art Gallery and St John of God Health facilities.
The Mandorla Art Award offers artists and the public a new vision that is actually a very old vision, the place of the Christian religion in art. It is the fulfillment of a dream held by a small group of committed Christians, the Mandorla Centre of Inner Peace.
Wishing to balance the largely secular nature of most art seen in today’s galleries, the Mandorla Art Award Committee selects a particular theme or passage from the Bible, Old or New Testaments.
This unique approach among Australian religious art prizes invites artists to think laterally and with sensitivity by interpreting this in two- or three-dimensional works.

Hamilton Street Gallery announces a call for artists for A Man’s World.
Deadline: 15 Feb 2016
For this juried exhibition we’re asking artists to step into the man cave to observe and uncover the concept of the male image and it’s social, physical, and psychological evolution. In today’s world, what does a man need to be a man? How have, or haven’t, these needs changed in regard to society’s perceptions and expectations throughout history? In the future, what characteristics will denote what a man is? Possible images to explore can be positive or negative and may include such male archetypes as superheroes and villains, cowboys, athletes, gangsters, politicians, madmen, rockstars, revolutionaries, computer geeks, Wall Street tycoons, poets, preachers, loners, zealots, and idiosyncratic artists. We encourage work that is adventurous in content and all media is accepted.
Hamilton Street Gallery is a small gallery in a small town run by a small family.
