What: Call to Artists and Curators for The Arts Center 2021-2022 Exhibition Program

When: Deadline, March 22, 2020, midnight. Online submissions only.

The Arts Center Exhibition Committee seeks proposals for the 2021-22 Main Gallery Exhibition Program. Each calendar year, The Arts Center’s Main Gallery features a number of scheduled exhibits that last generally five to six weeks. Two of the exhibits recur annually and are not part of this call to artists.

We seek submissions that give us the opportunity to broaden our audience and connect with other fields of interest within the Corvallis community such as science, technology, agriculture, and relevant social issues. One of our core questions is “why here, why now” as to determine the relevance of particular proposals.

The Arts Center is a community organization that fosters creativity and engagement with the arts locally and regionally. This engagement encourages personal growth and well-being of the individual as well as the community. Art is a universal language, and we welcome and value the open dialogue and creative connections that occur in our public programs. Thus, we encourage chosen artists to provide us with support videos and/or digital slide shows to enhance the conversation.

The Exhibition Committee creates a balanced exhibition program from your submissions. We invite artists from:

  • all media
  • large and small group shows
  • retrospectives and one-person exhibits
  • local artists
  • introductory work from artists of the greater Pacific Northwest
  • artists who are established, emerging or from underrepresented communities

We are inviting both artists and curators to respond to this Call to Artists.
All artists/ curators from the Pacific Northwest are eligible. Artists are responsible for all shipping or delivery. The Exhibition Committee reserves the right to combine artists who have submitted individually.

Link for images, floorplans and size measurements of the gallery. 1,200 square feet, with 150 feet of linear wall space.
