Call for Artists – Artrooms Fair ROMA 2019

Artrooms Fair Roma has announced the dates of its  2nd Edition!

The Fair will run from the 22nd to the 24th March  2019 at The Church Palace Hotel (Via Aurelia, 481, 00165 Roma RM, Italy).  Artrooms Fair is the first international contemporary art fair offering free exhibition spaces to independent artists, innovating the way artists and buyers meet.


We are now calling for independent artists from all over the world, from all different backgrounds and media.


Room Art Application: Artists will exhibit in hotel rooms to be transformed in their own creative and intimate studios. It is a great opportunity to share your vision, meet collectors, curators, and to be scouted by galleries.


Video Art Application

The Video Art section will take place at the Auditorium Cinema Bachelet. Covering an area of 400sqm, the auditorium can seat 550 guests and is equipped with sophisticated audio and visual multimedia services, dedicated wireless internet connections and a Dolby surround system 7.1.


Sculpture Park Application: The Sculpture Park will be a wide outdoors area within the premises of The Church Palace Hotel.

The Single Work Application: Artists submit 1 application for only 1 work and, if selected, artists will not be required to attend the fair. It is a great opportunity for all artists who express their interest in Artrooms Fair but experience difficulties in covering transport and accommodation expenses on top of the shipment and/or getting a travel VISA, and considering also the emerging artists who haven’t got a wide portfolio to show to the public yet.

Open call for artists to participate in "GZ-XPO / LONDON 2019" 20-24 January


20 - 24 January 2019

* International collective art exhibition in central London.

* Curated and organized by GaleriaZero from The Netherlands.





We are honoured to realize our international collective art event in the well known Millenium art Gallery in central London.

An impressing space with plenty of daylight and outdoor terrace will host this unique event. With important art galleries around and at walking distance from the Victoria and Albert Museum, Leighton House Museum, Design museum and others.... Well communicated and at short distance from Mayfair, Piccadilly and other icons of the artworld.


Theme: art and awareness

This theme maybe sounds already a little habitual, but has not yet penetrated in the obvious sense that art and awareness are connected. For this reason we like to accentuate the importance of awareness that may be considered as the drive for creating art and that art as well leads to awareness. Not only for the artist, but for all people that appreciate art.


For GZ-XPO / LONDON 2019 we are selecting innovative contemporary art from all over.

All media will be considered.  Painting, photography, video, sculpture, installation.

Butterbiggens Prize in UK painting

The Butterbiggens Prize is an experiment to see if a Art Foundation can be productive on a micro scale. We provide tiny grants for artists in the form of fast food gift certificates. Like online Galleries, we function as a showcase for contemporary established and emerging artists, in which the selection process will eventually establish its own prestige.  Every month a British painter will be nominated, and receive a small financial award, as well as a temporary show case on this website. In the future we may launch more ambitious programming.


We define British as anyone working or living in the UK, and Painting as broadly as you can justify in the description of your piece.

Micro Fellowship for British Painters, juried by a group of Scottish Art Students.


To apply, send and email to butterbiggens [op] gmail [punt] com with as many as three photos of ONE painting, completed in the last three years. Incude a CV  or bio if you want, and also a word file with the title, date, size and medium of the painting. A long artist statement is not needed, and likely won't be read, But if its not obvious how your submission is a painting you can include this in the same document.  submissions close Nov 22 and a winner will be announced by Nov 28th.
