Open Call for Proposal Submissions

The Craig Gallery is accepting Proposal Submissions on an ongoing basis. The Craig is particularly interested in exhibiting a wide cross-section of diverse, emerging artists throughout our region. Artists displaying diversity in practice and three dimensional works are currently of particular interest.

The Craig Gallery is now accepting proposals for sculptural work, unique installations, and performance pieces for display in our Case Galleries. The Craig Case Galleries were installed in the Winter of 2017 and has proven to be a unique, high visibility opportunity for artists to capture the attention of a diverse group of the City’s public. We are encouraging artists to think outside the box – or inside in this case, haha -and consider how they might provide onlookers insight into their world. The Case Gallery schedule coincides with the main Craig Gallery openings and exhibit schedule but may be subject to change.

The Craig Case Gallery Dimensions
The larger case is 68″h x 36″d x 80″w and the new smaller case is 68″h x 36″d x 40″w.

Proposal submission guidelines and main gallery dimensions are found below. All submissions can be sent to [email protected]. Submissions may be sent at any time, the Craig Gallery Advisory Committee meets quarterly to review all proposals.
