The tremendous success of artspace's first annual Within Reach Auction enables the gallery to waive all exhibition fees for the 2017 Exhibition Calendar to exhibiting artists.
The Exhibition Committee will review proposals* for the Main, Helena Davis, Frable and smallspace galleries for shows opening on the fourth Friday of January, February, April, July, August and September of 2017.
The proposal deadline is August 31, 2016. Digital submissions accepted until that date. Mailed submissions must be postmarked no later than August 31, 2016
Selection of Exhibitors for the 2017 Exhibition Calendar will be announced on September 20, 2016.
* The $25 proposal fee still applies. The Exhibition Committee acknowledges each proposal and communicates with each artist with any questions or concerns regarding their proposal.
- Except for special shows (which require prior approval) only artspace members may submit proposals for use of the entire gallery.
- Proposers may indicate suggested co-exhibitors (those who exhibit during the same month, but in a different gallery), if any, with whom they would like to share the same month and are asked to indicate preferred gallery space, but the final decision rests with the Exhibition Committee. Its decisions are based on numerous factors, including size and number of works (for gallery designation) and compatibility of subject matter, style and media (for co-exhibitor designation).
- Proposals may be made for individual, group or joint shows. Joint shows are shows for two artists with inter-related works who intend for their works to be shown together in the same gallery.
- The Exhibition Committee will not accept a proposal for a body of work that has already been shown in Richmond or the Greater Richmond Metropolitan Area. Proposals must be for new work or work new to this area.
- Proposals must accurately reflect the nature of the works proposed to be presented in the show. If a proposal is accepted and the works brought to the gallery for hanging prior to the show are not consistent with the nature and quality of the works presented in the proposal, artspace reserves the right to cancel the show.
Please familiarize yourself with our Exhibition Guidelines, before submitting your proposal.
