SOIL invites curators and artists to submit proposals for installation/exhibition/projects. Selected proposals will be scheduled for one month shows at SOIL Artist Run Gallery for the latter part of 2012. Proposals including three or more artists are encouraged. They are not accepting solo show proposals at this time.
Project Description: Describe in a paragraph the themes and content of the show. It is imperative your description is clear and that it leaves us with a strong impression of what to expect from the exhibition you propose. Include project title, how many pieces in the show, media, and other important details on your plans for the exhibition. We are interested in compelling ideas, concisely stated.
SOIL provides a stipend ($200) to assist with postcard printing & postage, and pays for vinyl wall lettering. All additional costs for the show, including shipping and insuring of artworks, reception food and drink, etc., are the responsibility of the curator. Additionally, the curator is responsible for installing and de-installing the show within the given schedule.
SOIL assists with writing and distribution of a press release, access to the mailing list, keeping the gallery staffed and general promotion on the website.
Deadline for receipt of all materials is Saturday February 4th, 2012 by 5PM.
