Two Deadlines:
For a show in 2009: September 2008
For a show in 2010: June 2009

Exhibition proposals

art6 Gallery
Richmond, Virginia

art6 is a member-run, non-profit gallery, dedicated to promoting and showcasing quality contemporary visual and performing arts, offering opportunities for education, community outreach and creative interaction.

art6 is currently accepting applications for spring 2009 and fall 2010. The final deadline for consideration for a show in 2009 is Sept. 2008. For 2010, the deadline is June 2009. Once the Exhibition Committee reviews applications, you will be notified by mail.

Applicants may indicate suggested co-exhibitors, if any, with whom they would like to share the same month and may indicate preferred gallery, but the final decision will rest with the Exhibition Committee.

Proposals must accurately reflect the nature of the works to be presented in the show. If a proposal is accepted and works brought to the gallery for hanging prior to the show are not consistent with the nature and quality of works presented in the proposal, art6 reserves the right to cancel the show.

Exhibition guidelines
art6 gallery asks that exhibiting artists observe the following guidelines in presenting and hanging their show. The purpose is not to enforce uniformity, but to create a certain aesthetic consistency and an atmosphere of quality and attention to detail.

Each artist is free to display their work as they see fit as long as it does not damage the gallery. However, there are guidelines that must be followed when hanging work.

It is the policy of art6 that all galleries shall be used for each show. Any exception to this policy requires approval by the Exhibition Committee.

Some of the work must be for sale in each show, unless otherwise approved, e.g., for "Special Shows." It is recommended that no less than half of the works be offered for sale.

art6 is entitled to a commission on sales made as a result of the show, even if they occur after the show. If a purchaser sees a work in the show and decides to purchase it within three (3) months following the show, art6 should receive thirty (30%) percent commission.
