Abington Art Center Curatorial Review

Deadline: September 30, 2013 (HAND DELIVERY) or (RECEIVE)

Curatorial Review
Gallery, Sculpture Park and Community Venues
Abington Art Center

Jenkintown, PA

Abington Art Center invites professional artists to submit proposals for consideration to participate in our Gallery, Sculpture Park and community venues. The deadline for Curatorial Review submissions is at the end of September. Art Center members receive free entry fee.

Each season the exhibition program consists of several exhibitions in our galleries featuring regional artists, and the installation of large scale sculptures in our outdoor sculpture park. Artists are often invited to participate in educational programs such as lectures, public forums, and workshops to stimulate and involve audiences in the experience.

The focus, criteria, and eligibility for each venue is different, so please read carefully before completing the application.

Kellner Gallery Program
AAC’s main gallery exhibitions are organized by our curatorial staff and are planned well in advance. The theme or media content of shows evolve through the review process. Exhibitions run for 7-8 weeks.

Solo Series
The Solo Series offers regional artists the opportunity to show a body of work for in an individual gallery.

Sculpture Park
Abington Art Center supports the creation and promotion of outdoor works by regional and national artists. Works with an ecological emphasis are of primary interest, both temporary/ephemeral and more permanent. Proposals for relocating previously created work will also be considered. Depending on funding and the scope of the project, an honorarium and installation support is available to aid the efforts of the artist. This amount will vary from project to project. Outdoor works must be suitable for a public setting and artists are encouraged to submit proposals that recognize the natural attributes of AAC’s elegant estate grounds. Works may remain on view from six months and up to two years and must be dismantled/removed by the artist.

Artist in Residence Projects
AAC will consider proposals for residencies in the Sculpture Park and/or with local schools and area institutions. If interested, enclose a statement outlining a proposed line of inquiry.
