Main Street Gallery: Call for Artists & Curators

Deadline: February 27, 2012 (RECEIVE)

Call for Artists & Curators
Main Street Gallery

Ketchikan, AK
2012-2013 Season

Artists are invited to submit proposals for solo or group exhibitions of their work for the 2012-2013 Season (Sept. 2012 - Aug. 2013) of the Ketchikan Area Arts & Humanities Council’s Main Street Gallery.

Curators are invited to submit proposals to curate a group exhibit based on unique themes or genres.

In evaluating proposals, the Gallery Review Panel shows preference for proposals by emerging and established local artists, group displays by students or community artists, and curators who propose exhibits that engage and challenge artists and viewers. Preference will be given to artists who have not shown in the gallery in the past two years. Artists and curators are encouraged to give a public demonstration, lecture or slideshow at the Main Street Gallery while their exhibit is on display.

Proposals are recommended by the Review Panel to the Gallery Committee and approved by the KAAHC Board of Directors. The Gallery season is September through August, excluding December, February, and August. If you have a particular exhibit month in mind, please indicate this in your cover letter and the Gallery Committee will try to accomodate you.

Exhibits open on the first Friday of each month and close on the last Friday of their month; KAAHC receives 25% of all sales.

Artists and curators selected to exhibit at the Main Street Gallery are required to be KAAHC members. Please be aware that the gallery is a multi-use space and is used for various community gatherings- your work may be moved to accommodate functions.
