EMULSION 2017 is an open call to all artists who reside or work in the Washington-Baltimore metropolitan area within a 50 mile radius of East City Art’s offices on Capitol Hill. This is an opportunity for artists from the central Mid-Atlantic to showcase the extraordinary diversity and excellence in regional contemporary art.
An emulsion combines two seemingly incompatible ingredients to produce a third yet entirely new substance. In this spirit, East City Art’s EMULSION seeks to combine the regions’ cultural differences into a single blended exhibition by combining a wide array of art forms and expressions.
EMULSION is produced East City Art, DC’s visual arts publication and led by renowned visual art event and festival producer Phil Hutinet. EMULSION is one of the region’s leading visual art events providing local artists with the opportunity to win cash awards and exhibit their work in a well-publicized and public forum. EMULSION has helped propel the careers of past participants by connecting them with acclaimed regional curators, gallerists and arts organizations.

East City Art ’s mission is to connect local artists with the community at large by creating a dialog between artists and members of the community.
