1708 Gallery Accepting Exhibition Proposals
Due Aug 17 2018

1708 Gallery welcomes all artists to submit exhibition proposals. Our Exhibitions Committee reviews proposals annually. This committee includes professional artists from our Board, Curator, and Executive Director. Exhibition proposals are currently being considered for the year 2020. If you are currently a student, you must have graduated by the exhibition year. 1708 Gallery strongly encourages proposals for new or developing projects and bodies of work. In addition to proposals for exhibitions in 1708’s gallery space, public works and other non-gallery based projects will be considered.

Exhibition periods are approximately six weeks. 1708 provides a $1000 honorarium, plus shipping, travel, installation and other exhibition support.

1708 Gallery is committed to providing opportunity and space for experimentation, freedom and artistic growth, while promoting understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. We also support artists’ professional development through creation and facilitation of public or educational programming; interaction with curators, other arts professionals and collectors; and engagement with diverse audiences.

The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM EST on Friday, August 17, 2018 Final notifications will be sent by late Spring 2019.

Application Fee: $10
