Open Calls for Group Shows

Deadline: March 31, 2007

Are you an innovative visual artist interested in exhibiting your work at our new gallery space? If so, HUB-BUB is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting applications for exhibition from artists working in every genre – from installation art to painting, sculpture to graphic art and everything else in between and beyond.

The Showroom is a contemporary gallery featuring the work of progressive artists and works hard to specifically showcase those artists who are young and emerging. We welcome all regional and national artists to apply.

This is a rolling application process. To be considered for the Fall/Winter 2007, please submit your package postmarked no later than March 31, 2007.

To apply, please send the following information:

*10 images of your work on a CD readable by Mac and PCs.
Clearly label each image with the title, dimension, and medium of the work.

*A brief biographical paragraph and photograph (jpeg) of yourself (for our files and press information in case your work is selected to exhibit)

*A list of any special technical requirements your exhibit would require
Current resume

*A self-addressed stamped envelope if you wish for your materials to be returned to you.

Submissions are reviewed and shows are curated by the Hub-Bub Art Selection Committee which is composed of local artists and art professionals. The committee will schedule exhibits and choose the artist to display. The exhibit schedule consists of group shows with 2-5 artists and themed shows.

Most exhibits show for approximately one month. *The artist is responsible for transporting the exhibited pieces of art to and from the gallery in person or by mail. *2D art must be framed or mounted in some way for hanging.

Our commission rate is 20%. This fee helps to cover gallery operating expenses.

Hub-Bub will be responsible for the following:

providing a safe and secure, well-lit gallery to showcase the artists' work
creating title/ artist/price tags for each piece
advertising the exhibit in print, on the radio and on the web
set-up and break-down of the exhibit (local artists are strongly encouraged to help with this for their show.)
creating invitations to opening night galas
hosting the gala
