Heads up, and welcome to the debut of RELISH — a series of submission fueled print magazine releases paired with exhibitions to celebrate creative communities!
1 city | 35 artists | 2,000 magazines | 1 gallery show
Starting with the SF Bay Area, we want YOU to get your ass in gear and submit your artwork, so we can get you published and shown in a rad gallery.
The GRØSS team has partnered with Ello and naturally, we’re both psyched to enable and give recognition to as many people as we can. RELISH will allow us all to enjoy the crazy, creative flavors in our hoods.

Submissions open Monday, May 15, 2017 and will close on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 11:59pm PST.
- 10-15 artists will be selected to appear in a weekend pop-up show in SF.
- Artists will also be interviewed, featured in GRØSS and Ello newsletters, and have access to video and photo assets of the gallery show.
The GRØSS and Ello teams will curate the top submissions.
After the contest deadline, judges will select 35 artists to be featured in the print magazine and 10-15 from those to be featured in the show.
GRØSS will contact all winners. Selected artists should be prepared to deliver or ship original artwork to the gallery in San Francisco, within 3 weeks of the opening. Your items must be framed and/or shipped ready to hang. Should you want to sell your work, we can do that for you!
Don’t sleep, the submission window is short! If you know any great artists, make sure you tell them to make an Ello account and get their best work entered. The open call will last until Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 11:59pm PST.
Let’s see whatchu got!
