Submission Policy

Submissions are now CLOSED for the 2023 edition of EBTKS. Submissions open back up in January 2024.

La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, California, showcases figurative and narrative paintings and unusual sculptures. Please read the guidelines carefully. The Exhibition will take place on July 8th, 2023. Artists need to be 18+ years of age to participate. The deadline to submit work is May 15th, 2023, @ midnight PST. DO NOT EMAIL IMAGES, PLEASE. ONLY SUBMISSIONS THROUGH THE PORTAL WILL BE REVIEWED.

Abstract expressionism, video or digital art, photography, prints, or conceptual installations will not be accepted. Not to say we don’t enjoy this type of art but it’s just not our thing.”


Size restriction: All artworks need to be 12 x 12 inches (including frame size) will be accepted. We strongly suggest using 12 x 12” pre-stretched canvas or panel to eliminate the need for framing. 3D work must be 12″ or smaller in its longest direction.

Shipping: Artists outside of Los Angeles are responsible for the cost of shipping their work to and from the gallery, including all taxes and duties for international artists.

Framing: Artwork does not have to be framed, but if it is, we encourage you not to use glass, please. Plexi is fine.

New Work Only: Artwork submitted must be made within this last calendar year (2022-2023).

Do not submit work that is for sale elsewhere.

All artwork must arrive ready to hang. If work arrives without hanging hardware, it will be returned and not exhibited. I’m not going to hang the artwork on some screws simply because it is unsafe for the work and could damage it. Put hardware on your artwork. Not doing so looks unprofessional to gallerists and collectors.

Accepted Artwork: If artwork is accepted, adjustments are not possible.

Acceptance: Accepted artists will be notified After May 15th, 2023

Right of Sale: La Luz de Jesus Gallery will have the exclusive right of sale for exhibited artwork for 30 days after the exhibition’s close.

Payment: The artist and La Luz de Jesus Gallery split is a standard 50/50 split. If artwork sells, the artist will receive a payment within 30 days after the sale or close of the exhibition.

It is the responsibility of the artist to deliver and retrieve their artwork.
