Call for Artists 2018

Since 2002 Telephonebooth has produced two group shows a season,
the Summer Salon and the Winter Invitational.

Usually the Summer Salon is a mixed group show of gallery artists' recent work and emerging artists.

We have always encouraged application to the group shows as a more accessible entry into the gallery process.

2017-18 Winter Invitational

2017-18 Winter Invitational

the luxury of imaginary purism only dissolves
when mixed with pluralist reality.

Telephonebooth, and the gallery as intersection of pluralistic dialogue,
has always been the program, as if there might be a metaphor to our larger
world outside of art.

To this point, in this show, there is art of refinement
and also art of a rough hewn nature all sharing the same location
and all equally valid.


2017-18 Winter Invitational


On the folly of attempting purism
while living in pluralistic reality...

Preview: Friday, March 2nd, 4pm-6pm
Opening: Saturday, March 3rd, 12pm-5pm

Showing recent work by artists of both esteemed and ill repute,
mostly unframed and pinned on the wall using binder clips,
so that viewers might be challenged
to use and enable their own capacity for looking.

gallery open Saturdays 12-5 and by appointment

Opening October, Andy Messerschmidt "Agroccult"

Agroccult , partial view

Opening October,
Andy Messerschmidt Agroccult

Andy has been working with Telephonebooth since 2004 and has shown at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis also in numerous solo and group shows in LA, Chicago, New York, and Kansas City.

Agroccult is an ongoing series of some 600 10" x 10″ oil, acrylic and mixed media works on paper. The seed idea for this painting "revolves around the landscape acting as a stage for the playing out of occult phenomena" and then how that stage is worked out in different forms of architecture and human activity.


2014-15 Winter Invitational

As always, there will be a wide range of reality based and visionary working artists participating in the latest incarnation of this annual show.
