Abington Art Center Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: September 15, 2008 (RECEIVE) & (Hand Delivery)

Exhibition Proposals

Abington Art Center

Abington Art Center invites professional artists to submit proposals for consideration to participate in our Gallery, Sculpture Park and community venues.

Each season the exhibition program consists of several exhibitions in our galleries featuring national and regional artists, and the installation of large scale sculptures in our outdoor sculpture park. For both indoor and outdoor exhibitions, the Center provides artists with professionally produced documentation, invitations, and promotional materials. Related educational programs such as lectures, public forums and workshops are designed to stimulate and involve audiences in the experience.

The focus, criteria and eligibility for each venue is different, so please read carefully before completing the application.

Kellner Gallery Program
AAC’s main gallery exhibitions are organized by our curatorial staff and are planned well in advance. The theme or media content of shows evolve through the review process. Exhibitions run for 7-8 weeks.

Community Gallery Solo Series
The Solo Series offers individual regional artists the opportunity to show a body of work for one month.

Sculpture Park
Abington Art Center supports the creation and promotion of outdoor works by regional and national artists. In 2005, AAC initiated a new program for its 27 acre Sculpture Park which includes an annual exhibition titled “Inside/Outside” (May to November) coordinated with an indoor gallery exhibition and a biannual “Woodland Residency” project on our grounds. Depending on funding and the scope of the project, an honorarium and installation support is available to aid the efforts of the artist. This amount will vary from project to project. Outdoor works must be suitable for a public setting. Artists are encouraged to submit proposals that recognize the natural attributes of AAC’s elegant estate grounds. Works with an ecological emphasis are of primary interest, both temporary/ephemeral and more permanent. Proposals for relocating previously created work will also be considered.

Works may remain on view from six months and up to two years and must be dismantled by the artist.

Artist in Residence Projects
AAC has several opportunities to collaborate with area institutions and schools on placing artists in their communities. If interested, enclose a statement outlining a proposed line of inquiry.
