We accept submissions on a rolling basis, but we are are currently actively reviewing proposals for upcoming shows at our three West Philly locations beginning as early as May 2013.

The Green Line Cafe has established itself as a respected venue for viewing art, and with hundreds of customers at our locations each day, the art is definitely seen. The exhibition schedule is directed by Green Line co-owner Douglas Witmer, an internationally exhibiting visual artist. We rotate exhibitions every 2 months at each of our three locations, for a total of 18 exhibitions a year. We have shown work by artists from around the country, however we prioritize submissions from Philadelphia-area artists. We also welcome themed proposals by guest curators and community groups.

–Mail or drop off a CD with 10 images of your work to our Baltimore Avenue location only. This should include media/size info for the works, your contact info, bio/resume, and optional artist statement.
–E-mail us a link to your website where the above information will be found. PLEASE NO E-MAIL ATTACHMENTS. These will not be considered.
Note: please send images of work that is representative of what you would plan to exhibit if you were given a show.
–Artists who are offered a show will be asked to sign an exhibition contract with the Cafe.
–You can view/download the exhibition contract HERE.

Please note that we cannot return your materials.
Each submission will be given our personal attention, however we are unable to respond to submissions unless we are interested in showing your work. Sometimes this can take a while. It’s not personal, it’s just how it goes.
Please do not call the cafe about art submissions. The staff working behind the counter will not be able to help you.
