Art Calls Giertz Gallery Call for Exhibition Proposals

Parkland College Giertz Gallery Champaign, Illinois, United States

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: June 15, 2024; Ongoing – Giertz Gallery at Parkland College seeks exhibition proposals by solo artists, collaborative groups, or curators in all genres of contemporary approaches to art-making. Preference will be given to artists with an established exhibition record. Giertz Gallery is a professionally designed gallery devoted primarily to education through contemporary art. It hosts seven exhibitions annually, including one student exhibition, one Art and Design Faculty Show, and a National Invitational. Other shows vary depending on applications and the vision of the Art Gallery Advisory Board.

Giertz Gallery is more than just an exhibition space. It’s a dynamic platform that brings contemporary art to the forefront. Our teaching gallery hosts programs featuring professional artists, allowing faculty to use the gallery as an instructional resource. This setup benefits our students and the community, who get to experience the artwork firsthand, and the artists, who can share their creative process and artistic journey.

Our exhibits run for approximately six weeks, and the artist is responsible for expenses and insurance during the artwork’s transportation to the gallery. We provide return shipping or an honorarium to cover return travel expenses. Additionally, we offer an honorarium for participating in visiting artist activities such as lectures, gallery talks, and workshops.

Submitting a proposal to Giertz Gallery is a simple and straightforward process. To apply, please submit 20 images (including at least one installation image if possible), a list of titles, sizes, dates, and media, a resume or CV with an exhibition record, and an artist statement related to this body of work.

Only complete proposal packages, including all information listed in the Proposal Guidelines, will be reviewed. For more information, please contact giertzgallery@parkland.edu. We accept applications on an ongoing basis for future review.

However, application materials must be received by June 15, 2024, for inclusion in the following review cycle.

Open to the public and free of charge, the Donna Hyland Giertz Gallery is a teaching gallery, striving to serve the educational and cultural needs of our diverse community. Each year through its exhibitions and programming, the gallery seeks to promote the development of artists’ talent and aesthetic awareness while at the same time expanding the audience’s appreciation of various art forms. The gallery presents exhibitions by contemporary artists of regional and national status and are selected to illustrate a wide range of traditional and innovative work of all media.
