Green River College, Auburn (WA), Call for Artists: Solo or Group Exhibitions 2019

Deadline: July 1st, 2018

Helen S. Smith Gallery on the Green River College Campus (Auburn, Washington) is currently accepting proposals for solo or curated group exhibitions that will take place January 2019 through December 2019.

What we are looking for: As a gallery on an academic campus, we are interested in hosting solo and group curated exhibitions that contribute to or engage social, cultural or conceptual dialogue. The Visual Arts Program at the college features painting, drawing, ceramics, photography and design. Though we favor exhibitions which highlight media being taught on campus, we are open to proposals that employ wider experimentation.

Submission Process: Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, but deadline to apply for the 2019 season is July 1st, 2018.

The Helen S. Smith Gallery invites artists to present a closing artist talk or panel discussion with each exhibition. We typically provide a stipend for your participation in this event. As a general rule, artists are responsible for shipping and any associated fees with preparing the work for exhibition. The gallery has a limited budget, but we are open to discussing additional programming, which may include a modest contribution toward those expenses, subject to available funding.

The gallery is committed to promoting our exhibitions through press releases, local and regional arts calendars, college PR resources, print and social media.

Installation date-range will be provided to the artist, and the artist is encouraged to hang their own show, though we are willing to work with you individually if assistance is needed. De-installation occurs after the closing reception concludes.

The Helen S. Smith Gallery does not take a commission on works sold. All inquiries regarding sales will be forwarded directly to the artist.

In the In-Between, Open Call for Photographic Work, Now You Don’t: Photography and Extinction

Deadline: July 15th, 2018

In the In-Between is seeking photographic work of all types that register this extinction crisis.

Awards: Selected entries will be included in the online exhibition Now You Don’t: Photography and Extinction. The exhibition will open late summer/fall 2018 on In the In-Between.

  • applying for a project about contemporary visual art;
