About The Foundation

Circle Foundation for the Arts was created in 2017 and functions as an international arts platform. Our office is based in Lyon, France but we function internationally. We annually represent a unique, juried selection of visual artists in our online gallery. Although many artists apply for membership, our goal is to maintain a small and exclusive selection of Featured Artists.

Circle Foundation provides a platform for the active fine artist, orchestrating the development of a variety of visual arts projects and open calls. Our goal is to provide a stage for the artist, who can implement it as a forum to publish, exhibit, win grants, awards and titles and to boost their resume while also becoming established within a notable network.

About the Director

Born in Athens, Greece, Myrina Tunberg Georgiou grew up on the island of Crete. After graduating high school she moved to Athens to attend the National University of Greece and study Methodology, History and Theory of Sciences. Next, she moved to Santa Barbara, California to study Studio Art at SBCC. Deeply inspired by Professor, Department Chair and sculptor Ed Inks she further pursued an education in Art History and Studio Art. After earning a degree in Design & Technology from the San Francisco Art Institute, Myrina continued to be involved in the San Francisco Bay Area art community working for a variety of art institutions, museums, and galleries. In 2011, she co-founded Kitsch Gallery, an experimental art space in the city’s vibrant, Mission District, which housed 12 artist studios and a gallery space where she co-directed a variety of visual and sound art exhibits. In 2012, Myrina moved from California to Paris, France where she did freelance design work for galleries and publishing houses. Since 2014, Myrina has been living in Lyon, France.

After a decade of experience working in galleries and art institutions in the USA, Greece, and France, in 2017, Myrina created Circle Foundation for the Arts. Inspired by the variety of practices and perspectives in contemporary art and with the main purpose of highlighting the importance of art and culture as an integral part of our social and political lives, the Foundation functions as a platform publicizing the work of remarkable artists around the world.

Our Professional Team

For each project we collaborate with a variety of designers, literary editors, printing experts, independent curators and other art organisations to ensure a high standard and impeccable quality of any finished product.

Visual Arts Magazines

Published online and in print, our magazines are distributed internationally reaching a wide audience. We currently circulate two titles, Circle Quarterly Art Review, and Spotlight Magazine.  Each new issue introduces 80-100 fine artists providing an exploration of current trends and original practices in all visual arts fields. Artists interested in publishing in our magazines can sign up for our #newsletter or directly email us at apply@circle-arts.com to request information.

Annual & Monthly Artists' Grant

Through our annual and monthly art contests, we give out cash grants and promotional packages to select artists. Stay in touch through our Newsletter for Artist and Open Calls page to find out when the next project opens and submit your artwork to be considered for a list of important distinctions. You can see our past grant recipients here.

Circle Philosophy

We are passionate about art and we approach what we do with enthusiasm. We are dedicated to the artists we represent and we are always looking to expand our services, keep developing and propose new and interesting projects. We believe in hard work and kindness. For us, art is not only a beautiful creative and expressive outlet, but we look at art as a vital necessity in making the world a better place. Most of our projects have a fee and that is because they require an entire team of professionals to develop, coordinate and perform.

Environmental Policy

For CIRCLE, protecting the environment is a top priority. At our office, we recycle and reuse paper and office materials as much as we can. Our magazine is printed on acid-free paper using HP Indigo technology, a computerized process that produces less waste and employs fewer resources (lower emissions) per job when compared to conventional printing. We encourage you to recycle your copy of our magazines or pass it on to a friend.

Circle Newsletter
The CFA Newsletter for Artists is a great way to stay in touch with opportunities to publish and exhibit your art. Join our mailing list to receive news, priority invitation to projects, discounts, and more. We send minimal and only quality content. Artists interested in our projects should subscribe today.

What I learned this year is an independent imprimatur matters. At one show, a collector bought Shoals, which you selected for publication, after I showed them the book and told the story. Then, they decided to buy a second, larger piece as well. So my new strategy is compete in all of your contests and skip everything else.

- Joy

(The video) looks excellent and I think Vimeo is a terrific venue for it.

- Brian Colez

“I thoroughly enjoy this magazine of contemporary international art. I have shown in it once and the experience is like entering into a competitive show. As with gallery or museum shows the artist is invited to send in work to be considered by a particular art curator. The application includes a small fee per work entered which clearly is for processing and not for profit. This makes the opportunity not only accessible financially but also enables them to combine excellent works that have a true feel of being a collection rather than a portfolio of whose who on the latest scene.”

- Alison Young

“I’m happy to be part of this.T he site is excellent with an eye for good art and it is a pleasure to look at the different portfolios. In the beginning, I was skeptical but as soon as I got deeper involved this feeling changed completely! I would recommend it to every artist !”

- Michal Ashkenasi

Thank you for sending me the link to my page on your website. It looks absolutely great and in my opinion you have really improved the text that I did send you. I’m proud to be part of the Circle Art team.

Thanks a lot, I’m very happy to be part of this selection. I think, you did a great job with that compilation at all! The art itself is divers and interesting but especially your arrangement of the artworks on a double page is really well done! I like also my own example page 63 with page 62. It seems to me that you have even contrasted in content here – and that with a common motif. Your selection therefore seems to “play” with my quote – even if this was perhaps not intended. Really well done! 

- Tepe Kraus

Thank you, It is thrilling to see so the work of so many artists showcased together in this beautiful magazine!
