Fitton Center for Creative Arts: Call for Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: July 1, 2013 (RECEIVE)

Call for Exhibition Proposals
Anne Ruder Bever Galleries
Fitton Center for Creative Arts

Hamilton, OH
2014-15 Season

The Fitton Center for Creative Arts, a community arts center in Hamilton, Ohio, showcases works by established, emerging, and student artists. Our goals are to present high quality exhibitions in the widest possible variety of media and content and to give gallery visitors different ways to experience and interact with art. The ongoing CReaTioN STaTioN presents hands on gallery activities while our Gallery Geeks series allows people to get together to discuss the art on view. Our multi-media juried show, The Greater Hamilton Art Exhibition (GHAE), is a spring exhibition featuring the talent of artists residing within 50 miles of Hamilton, with entry forms generally available in January. Solo series by artists are often combined or integrated to create a group show of 3 to 5 artists around a concept or theme.

The Fitton Center galleries feature hardwood floors, gray fabric and painted walls, beautiful wood grid drop ceilings, ceiling suspension load up to 200 lbs. and contemporary museum track lighting. The Anne Ruder Bever Galleries consist of 2,600 square feet of space in 4 separate gallery rooms and a corridor gallery on the first and second floors. A Student Gallery on the first floor is used to celebrate the results of Fitton Center classes, artwork made in area schools or community projects.

Exhibitions are generally scheduled 12 to 18 months, or more, in advance. Proposals are selected on the basis of quality of the work and how it contributes to the diversity of style, media and content for the year. Selections are made by a committee of experienced artists and others with knowledge and enthusiasm for the visual arts and the community. When appropriate, the work of two or more artists may be combined.

Please propose work that has been created within the past 5 years. Artists submitting proposals for groups of 2 or 3 artists must submit 10 JPEGs for each artist. Those submitting for groups larger than 3 artists must submit a total of 20 JPEGs that represent actual artworks proposed for display. Deadline for entry for Anne Ruder Bever Galleries is July 1, 2013 with selected proposals being scheduled summer 2014 – 2015 or beyond. We will make every effort to notify artists of committee decision by October 1, 2013.
