Solo, Two-person, Group and Concept Submissions
SEASON 9 - 2012/2013
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 and San Francisco. 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 one artist's vision.
Well over 100 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.
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 our programming.
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. But exhibit size and location will be determined by the curatorial staff at the time of season planning.
Types of proposals:
- Solo exhibits
- Two person exhibits
- Group shows
- Curatorial project (call for entries proposal by curator)
