Rotunda Gallery Call for Proposals

Deadline: September 12, 2013 at 4 p.m. (RECEIVE)

Call for Proposals
Rotunda Gallery

Kitchener, ON
2014 Season

Visual artists with professional curricula vitae are invited to submit exhibition proposals for the Rotunda Gallery’s 2014 schedule. To provide as many artists as possible with an opportunity to exhibit, artists will not be awarded Rotunda Gallery exhibitions in consecutive years.

Located on the ground floor of Kitchener city hall, the Rotunda Gallery features month-long, self-curated exhibits of original work by outstanding visual artists. The gallery program supports professional contemporary practice in the visual arts. To promote the development of visual arts in our region, applicants from Waterloo region are given preference, but artists’ applications from other Ontario localities may be considered. The Rotunda Gallery is a member of the Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG). The city announces exhibit openings to the media, and welcomes vistors to the gallery seven days a week.

Gallery Space
The Rotunda Gallery is a unique exhibition space. Its curved, wooden hanging wall includes a 48’ picture rail and 48” of vertical hanging space above a wall-length bench where visitors linger. The gallery is ideal for the display of two-dimensional art work hung using the existing suspended rod picture rail. Artwork must be suitably prepared to work with this hanging system. Artists are expected to visit the gallery to familiarize themselves with the space and its hanging hardware.
