Seymour Art Gallery
Sep. 20, 2019
Call for Artists Description:
Propose an exhibition for Seymour Art Gallery’s 2020 schedule. We are looking for exhibitions and artwork that will challenge visitors and provoke conversation. We strongly recommend that applicants visit the gallery in person and review past exhibitions on our website before submitting.
Membership in the Seymour Art Gallery Society is not required in order to make a submission to the gallery. Selected artists must become members of the Seymour Art Gallery Society. Individual membership will be required for each artist in a solo or group exhibition.
With the exception of Winter Gift Gallery, artists cannot appear in group exhibitions more frequently than every 3 years. Artists may not have solo exhibitions at Seymour Art Gallery more frequently than every 10 years.
As a public gallery with a mandate for education and enrichment, Seymour Art Gallery presents at least one program with every exhibition; submitting artists must be willing to present an artist talk or demonstration, or have a suggestion for another program (performance, music, dance, etc) related to their exhibition.
Seymour Art Gallery presents an opening reception, produces printed materials (including posters and invitation cards), and organizes publicity for exhibitions (press release, social media, online listings, and evites) at no cost to the artist(s). As a non-profit gallery, we are pleased to offer an honorarium for artist talks, but regret that we do not have a budget for artist exhibiting fees, shipping, or travel for our regular exhibitions at this time.
Sales: Work is not required to be for sale; pieces not for sale (NFS) should be labeled as such and should include a value for insurance purposes. Seymour Art Gallery will retain 35% on all works (or orders) sold.
Entry Fee: There is a $10 (USD) non-refundable Slideroom admin fee. You do not need to be a member of the Seymour Art Gallery to submit, but selected artists must become members ($25 for annual membership).
