Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: September 30, 2021 – Artspace gallery’s Exhibition Committee will review proposals for exhibitions of art in all genres for the 2022 season in our new gallery located at 2833A Hathaway Rd., Richmond, VA 23225, in the Stratford Hills Shopping Center.

We welcome submissions for exhibitions of art from all genres. Work exhibited should have been completed within the last 5 years of exhibition date unless the proposal is for a retrospective.

Artists or curators may apply for group shows. Full-time students are not eligible to apply for individual or joint shows.

Exhibitions will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Artistic merit, track record of past accomplishments, and the quality and nature of the work samples provided
  • How the artwork is inspired by and will contribute to broadening the understanding and awareness of contemporary art in the Greater Richmond area and/or its surrounding communities
  • How the artwork fosters innovation and relevance to Artspace visitors
  • How the artwork compliments or coordinates with other exhibitors during the same exhibition period

$35 non-refundable proposal fee required.

Proposals will not be reviewed before finalized payment is received by Artspace unless the fee presents a hardship for the proposer. Please contact the exhibition committee prior to submitting your proposal if you need to request an exemption from the fee at:
