Gadsden Arts Center


Call for Exhibition Proposals
Gadsden Arts Center

Quincy, FL

The Gadsden Arts Center invites artists and/or groups to apply to exhibit in its four exhibition spaces. The Director and Curator also curate historically significant exhibitions. In the latter regard, the Center works with private collectors to curate exhibitions of significant historical and artistic merit.

All artists or institutions wishing to exhibit must submit the GAC Exhibition Proposal Form which requires at least 10-20 quality images as examples of work to be included in an exhibition, a biographical sketch, a resume including a list of past exhibits, awards, collections, and bibliography. Artists are encouraged to exhibit a new body of work (exception: retrospectives). Proposals may be submitted at any time either by mail, email or in person.

These proposals are reviewed by the Exhibition Committee, whose role is to work in cooperation with the Executive Director and the Curator in proposing artists for exhibition, in reviewing applications for exhibition from artists and/or other interested parties, in selecting artists for exhibition, and in recommending policies and guidelines relevant to exhibitions to the GAC Board of Directors. The Exhibition Committee along with the Director/Curator screens all applicants every 3-6 months.
Artists are asked to not inquire about the status of an application. Notifications will be sent to artists/groups as soon as decisions are made. Exhibitions are scheduled 18-36 months in advance. All Exhibition Committee selection decisions are final.

For all major exhibitions (group exhibitions and Art in Gadsden excluded), the Committee will not accept applications from artists who have exhibited at GAC within 5 years, unless it is a new body of work. Exhibitions are generally open for 11 weeks but that time may vary.
