Call to Artist Gallery Tour and Submission Workshop

October 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| Free

Would you like to have a solo exhibition of your artwork in the gallery of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library downtown?

Need help preparing your submission?

Join us for this free workshop (Friday, October 20, 4:15-5 pm) where we’ll share more about what the jury is looking for and what goes on behind the scenes during the submission process. We’ll also take a walk around the gallery so you can learn more about the space and ask questions.

We can provide participants with a 2-hour parking validation for the garage under the library off of Alameda.

 

Call to Artists

We welcome all types of media. Visual artists living or working in Pima County may apply during our submission period, coming up later this fall: October 22-28, 2017.

The Main Library welcomes more than 40,000 visitors each month – this level of visibility is unheard of in a regular art gallery. The space is incredibly visible to a vibrant and growing downtown community.

We conduct this call every other year and receive about 70 submissions. A jury will select 24 artists to show their work in a month-long solo exhibition in the Main Library during the 2018-2019 juried exhibit season. Artists may be asked to show at other libraries, as well.

For more information, please see the Art Submission Guidelines, the Exhibitor Waiver Form, and if applicable, the Guidelines for Sculpture and Three Dimensional Art.

 

During the submission period, we will ask for:

  • Artist contact information
  • A brief artist statement (75 – 150 words)
  • Up to 5 JPG images (not necessarily the pieces you will show)

An image list (including the file name, title of the artwork, approximate year created, medium, and dimensions)
