Helikon exhibits are invite-only but we always welcome portfolio submissions and exhibit proposals for consideration.

Send an email to and attach several examples of your work in common filetypes (JPG or PNG preferred), links to any websites or social media profiles associated with your work, and a CV if you have one available.

Exhibition proposals should include a concept, some amount of existing imagery, an idea of the number of works / scope of the show, and a preferred timeline. Typically, proposals should be at least 9 – 12 months out.

Our curation is primarily focused on the Illustrative Arts – a crossroads of contemporary fine art as well as illustration, narrative art, and imaginative art. Please take a moment to look at our previous exhibits and ensure your work fits with our vision.

Due to the volume of messages, we can’t guarantee a response to every email, but we always make an effort to look over submissions.

No in-person portfolio reviews without prior scheduling.
