Call for Artist Information

The Jung Society welcomes applicants for inclusion in the Virtual Gallery. Please note, however, that artists are selected not just for the quality of their art, but also for their willingness to share the story behind it, as explained below.

Jung Society Mission Statement

The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity. We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called “individuation”. With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events. We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.

Objective of the Jung Society Virtual Gallery

Artists often describe their art in terms of what it will do for the viewer, that it will inspire, heal, transport, etc. The Jung Society Virtual Gallery, on the other hand, features artists who share with us what creating art does for their own psyches--what the win is for them in their art. The Virtual Gallery is a natural showcase for “expressive” art, but it also welcomes artists whose experience demonstrates that even the quietest piece can speak volumes.

Application process

If you would like to be considered for the Jung Society Virtual Gallery, please submit the following to support@jung.org 

  • Full contact information: name, address, email address, phone number, web site (if applicable)
  • A short description of why the stated objective of the Virtual Gallery resonates with you
  • Images of three or four of your works (jpegs preferred)           

Artists accepted for the Jung Society Virtual Gallery will be asked to submit

  • An artist statement (approximately 200 words)
  • A short biographical essay on the influences, events, encounters and epiphanies that inform and motivate the art you create today (maximum 1000 words)
  • Images of 15 to 20 of your works, with title and medium (jpegs preferred)
  • A photograph of you to be used on your Virtual Gallery page

Posts on the Virtual Gallery will be live for approximately six weeks and will be archived and available going forward. Featured artists should be aware that the Jung Society shares information about its programming and activities on various social media. The Virtual Gallery is not a sales point, but you are welcome to add contact information or a link to your website to enable people to reach out to you directly.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
