PUNCH Gallery
International Juried Exhibition
December 4 - January 2, 2009

Deadline: October 19, 2009

PUNCH Gallery presents an international juried exhibition taking place December 2009. Located in the Pioneer Square area of downtown Seattle, PUNCH provides an excellent opportunity to gain exposure within the Northwest regional art scene.

Artists from any country may submit work in any medium. There is no limit to the number of entries. In addition to traditional 2-D and 3-D works, artists are encouraged to submit work in new media, video, sound, or installation. Complicated installation procedures may require the artist to assist with installation. Members of PUNCH are not eligible to enter.
