Multiple Deadlines (see below)

Second Street Gallery
Exhibition Review, 2007

Visit the website:

Founded in 1973, Second Street Gallery is a nonprofit contemporary art space committed to presenting the best of new art to the Central Virginia community and to fostering an appreciation for contemporary art through educational programs. Exhibitions are solo, group or thematic in orientation, and represent regional and national artists of both emerging and established stature.

Exhibition Review Procedure
The Artist Review Panel consists of 8-10 local artists and arts professionals representing the cultural community of the Charlottesville/Albemarle region. Review sessions are anonymous: slides are projected, artist statements are read, and recommendations are made to SSG's Director who curates the exhibition season, considering both programming needs and budgetary issues.

Submitting Exhibition Proposals
Second Street Gallery will accept proposals from any artist who has not had a solo exhibition at SSG within the preceding four years. Works to be reviewed must have been completed within the last five years. Artists must submit the following for consideration:

1) 10 slides maximum/a CD is also acceptable
2) A typed list of slides/images
3) A current resume, including address, phone number, exhibitions, etc.
4) A brief artist statement not to exceed a single typed page, double-spaced
5) A SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope with adequate postage and packaging for return of your slides)
6) A $15 check (processing fee) made out to Second Street Gallery
