The School of Art galleries accept proposals for exhibitions in the student galleries – Gallery 100, Harry Wood Gallery and Step Gallery. All art students, faculty, alumni, groups or individuals are eligible to apply. Exhibitions are scheduled weekly or bi-weekly during the semester and the galleries maintain scheduled operating hours Monday through Friday except holidays. While exhibitors may request a specific space, successful proposals are generally placed in the most suitable space:
Proposals are accepted at any time, but the application deadlines for proposals to be considered for the following semester are: Nov. 1 for the spring semester and April 1 for the fall semester. Proposals received after the deadlines are automatically considered for the next application period.
All proposals are reviewed. The School of Art gallery and exhibitions committee makes the final acceptance decisions. If the galleries cannot accommodate all approved proposals during the semester requested, the proposals are considered for a possible future date.
Submit online proposal form (see below) and packet containing the following. Once you submit the online proposal form, you will receive an email with details on how to submit your packet. The packet should include the following:
The proposal narrative is a one- to three-page written narrative detailing the proposed theme and contents of the exhibition. Consider the following when writing your proposal narrative:
You will receive an email response directing you to submit the above packet with the following information and where to submit the packet. Please submit proposal documents in digital form as Word documents or PDFs, and images as lower resolution JPEGs (72 dpi, about 1000 pixels as the largest dimension). The files may be emailed or submitted on CD or flash drive.
Proposals will not go forward to the committee selection process until they are complete! Once the committee accepts a proposal, no changes may be made to the content, theme or title of the exhibition without the permission of the committee.
There is a $25 fee per exhibition, payable prior to installation. Each exhibitor is expected to understand and follow gallery policies and procedures as stated in the Gallery Guide to Procedures, which is provided once the proposal has been approved.
The gallery provides gallery class support for installation and staffing the gallery during the exhibition where possible, a mailing list, help with planning promotional items including cards, posters and press release, and assistance during the opening reception. Each group of artists is expected to plan and install their exhibition, provide simple refreshments and a guest book for the opening reception, and volunteer hours sitting the gallery during the exhibition.
