Eligibility: Everyone is welcome to apply. This is a rolling call for entry and will not have a deadline.
Founded in December 2009 by Martha Weidmann and Molly Casey, NINE dot ARTS grew out of the premiere regional art consulting firm McGrath & Braun. Martha’s and Molly’s opposite yet complementary strengths created the foundation for a dynamic partnership built on integrity, transparency, collaboration and a passion for art. With an entire staff formally trained in the arts, NINE dot ARTS’ expertise includes studio practice, art history, arts administration and creative writing.
The NINE dot ARTS name is taken from the classic brain teaser known as the nine dot puzzle. The challenge is to connect all nine dots using only four straight lines without lifting the pen off the paper. Most people think within the perceived grid. The key is to think outside the box.
Nine dot Arts’ artist database is internally used by our team of art consultants. After an extensive visual preference survey is given to our clients we refer to our database to choose the most appropriate art to present.
We present work in all styles and mediums including paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, and other art media. We typically place larger works (i.e. 20” x 20” and larger) of art because corporate spaces have very large walls. However, smaller series of works can be used in multiples.
There are three subject matters we rarely work with. They are nudes, strong political tones, and religious iconography. If your work consists solely of any of these please reconsider applying to this call.
