MANIFEST: CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Solo, Two-person, Group and Concept Submissions
Deadline to Apply: June 1
Exhibit Dates: Manifest's 10th Exhibition Season (Sept. 2013 - Aug. 2014)
On average one-third of Manifest's exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. In its nine seasons Manifest has exhibited works by artists from 47 states and 25 countries. It is important that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects. The group shows provide diversity of approach, media, style, and geographic origin, while the solo exhibits provide a deeper insight into individual artists' vision.
Well over 160 artists exhibit, and more than 3000 patrons visit the gallery each year. Thousands of artists submit works to thematic projects produced at the gallery. And our exhibits are routinely reviewed in regional and sometimes national news and art publications.
BE A PART OF OUR 10th SEASON!
Manifest is eager to receive proposals of various types, including any genre or media, and accepts these on an ongoing basis, reviewing them starting in early June in consideration for the upcoming season. The organization and gallery is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit with a mission to stand for quality in the visual arts. We set our own bar high, and generally exceed the expectations of both the exhibiting artists and our patrons with what we do.
All exhibit spaces are appropriately track-lit. The Main Gallery (the largest of the three) has street-facing windows nearly floor to ceiling providing excellent public exposure for the artwork 24/7. Exhibits are open to the public five hours a day, five days a week for a total of four weeks on view.
Gallery assignments are decided by the curatorial staff when planning the season. Proposals may suggest a gallery, or indicate the need for a specific type of space. For example, our Parallel Space gallery can be made completely dark even during daytime and is outfitted with ceiling mounted HD projector. But exhibit size and location will be determined by the curatorial staff at the time of season planning.*
Catalog: Manifest will document every work in every exhibit throughout the season in a full color catalog. View examples of Manifest's past exhibit catalogs here: http://www.manifestgallery.org/manifestpress/catalogs
NOTE that Manifest is working on exciting plans to increase its gallery space by over 50% for season 10! When this happens it will dramatically improve our ability to award more solo exhibits, and increase the amount of art and number of artists able to be shown from exhibit to exhibit.
