The University Art Gallery at New Mexico State University invites proposals for solo, group, and curated exhibitions that explore the theme of place.

Applications are due by January 27, 2017 at 11:59 pm. Selected proposals will be exhibited from June 8-July 27, 2017.

All mediums are welcomed, and proposals may address either a portion of the gallery or the space in its entirety, which is 3,875 square feet and 364 running feet of display wall. Artworks must arrive at the gallery by May 19, 2017, and will be shipped for return no later than August 3, 2017. Shipping costs for any exhibition can not exceed $500.00 USD round-trip, including materials. Any shipping cost which exceeds this amount must be covered by the guest curator(s) and/or participating artist(s). Selected guest curator(s) and/or participating artist(s) will receive the full support and collaboration of the University Art Gallery’s staff, particularly during installation.

As part of the exhibition, the gallery will print all labels, wall materials, and publications, including but not limited to: postcards, posters, and banner(s). Selected guest curator(s) and participating artist(s) may be asked to visit the gallery, if funding allows. An Exhibition Review Board, made up of community members, arts professionals, and art faculty from New Mexico State University will review all submitted proposals in a two part process. Completing the initial proposal application is the first step in this review process. If accepted for round two, you will be asked to submit a more detailed proposal with a longer description of the project and additional supporting images.
