About Samuel W. Kho

Samuel W. Kho enjoys a diversity of roles in many an art world— most importantly, in organizing exhibitions with artists.
Kho currently serves as Curator at All Things Project, a gallery located in Greenwich Village, New York City.
Previously, Kho was co-director of Hayworth Gallery in Los Angeles and had his graduate studies in the Art Market (FIT-SUNY).
To Samuel Kho, art, like life, is like a cactus: it ought to be thorny just as it could be beautiful. His constant mission is to gather and
empower a dangerously prickly assortment of people, classes, and beliefs.

All work should be a majority of white in color.
There is no size or material requirements, however the gallery ceilings are 11′ and 12′.
The jury and committee is open to all 2-D and 3-D mediums.

The jury committee has put together an inspiration that will encourage artists with some glimpses of the concept.


If you are interested in submitting work please see the files below, read them carefully and follow the instructions.

  8. Hi Darin,
    thanks for the comment, your site looks interesting too. I will certainly be checking back later to have a peek at the white show. Its good to see the idea of community and the arts. You might like to have a look at the networking site attached to my blog, to be able to connect with contemporary jewellers close to home and all over the world, and for us all to interact – its been wonderful. Yes, I am definitely putting in the good word for NING – it might be something you would be interested in developing with your blog, have a look.

  9. Thank you for extending it!

  10. Thanks Heather! I hope that this will work for yourself and others to get the art in for this show.
    We have had a lot of submissions so far, but a good amount of people that have been intent on submitting locally were not quite ready. Have a great weekend!
