City of Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery Call for Submissions


Call for Submissions
City of Santa Fe Arts Commission

Community Gallery
Santa Fe, NM

The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission’s Community Gallery promotes, sells and exhibits the work of New Mexico artists and artisans, with the emphasis on Santa Fe, through exhibitions, professional training and community involvement in the arts. Gallery programming provides a range of services, exhibitions and activities that engage the public as well as support the efforts of local artists/artisans.

The Community Gallery features themed exhibitions that run for two to three month intervals and display the full breadth and depth of the art produced by local artists and artisans in Santa Fe and New Mexico. Themed exhibitions ensure that both contemporary and traditional work in all media are shown, creating more varied, interesting and vital exhibits.

In order for an artist to be considered for participation in exhibitions, the Gallery must have a portfolio of that artist’s work in the artist archive.

Possible participants will be selected from the archive based on the quality of their work, their contribution to the full breadth of the exhibit media, and the appropriateness of their work to the theme (if applicable). After receiving a portfolio, that portfolio will remain in the Community Gallery’s files for future consideration in any upcoming shows. There is no need to re-apply.

A goal of the gallery is to offer the broadest inclusion for all artists and involve a large portion of the local population by offering more than the display of artwork. Exhibitions feature programs and events that invite a varied and diverse audience.
