Each application should include the following information:
  • Exhibit Proposal (Who will be exhibiting, what kind of works will be exhibited.)
  • Resume or List of Related Experiences
  • List of References (e.g. Galleries that you've exhibited at, arts groups that you are part of, etc.)
  • Portfolio of Works (High-Res Digital Images highly preferred; Images also accepted on a C.D. or by Physical Photographs of your Pieces. C.D.s and photographs will not be returned.)
We will file your request for a show, and after the Exhibit Committee's review of your request, we will let you know if we are able to schedule a show for you at the Arts Council in 2018.
