Exhibition Proposal

Exhibition Proposal Guidelines

Your information package to the gallery should include:

Cover letter – addressed to Matthew Ryan Smith, Curator.  Please tell us who you are, what you have been working on and outline your proposal.

Curriculum vitae – which should include:  address and phone number(s), email, education, exhibition history including gallery names, dates and an indication of your involvement in the show (juried, solo, group etc.).  Include any other relevant information such as teaching experience or other employment related to your art, awards and scholarships, reviews or articles.

Artist’s statement – expand on ideas mentioned in your cover letter.  Describe the focus of your recent work and what you hope to achieve.  If you are proposing a particular project with a predetermined curatorial theme, outline this clearly.

CD and list of works – include as many images as are needed to communicate the scope and range of your work (usually 10).

Images should be compatible with a PC, in jpeg format.  Identify each image on the CD with a number that corresponds to a separate sheet that lists that number plus title, dimensions, media, and year.

Self-addressed envelope – with adequate postage for return of CD.  Envelope should be padded or lined with cardboard.
