The Springfield Arts Commission (SAC) is searching for artists to exhibit at City Hall Gallery in 2021. Exhibitions at City Hall Gallery show primarily work created by Oregon artists. City Hall Gallery accommodates two- and three-dimensional art, and invites artists interested in exhibiting solo or in groups. Curated thematic exhibitions are also encouraged to apply.
Exhibition durations are typically four weeks. Artists are able to list art for sale during their showcase period, with no fees or commissions expected from artist exhibitors. Work exhibited must be suitable to the space and its function.
“This is a great opportunity for new and veteran artists to have their work seen by a range of community members,” said Springfield Arts Commissioner Eric Braman. “Artwork is displayed in a gallery space many visitors to the Springfield Public Library and other City Hall services pass through. Selected artists provide an element of beauty and wonder to this central service hub in our community. The Commission is so proud to support this gallery for Oregon artists and our local community!”
The application package includes a minimum of five images of art pieces indicative of the exhibition; an image list that details those art pieces’ title, media and size; and information about the artist, including contact information, an artist statement and months of availability.
The deadline to apply is July 10, 2020. Applicants may submit their applications directly through the link provided on the Springfield Arts Commission website, which includes instructions for submitting images. If any applicants are unable to use this application tool, they may email Amy Orre at email@example.com for alternative application options.
Selection will be made by the Springfield Arts Commission. Selected Artists will be notified by August 11, 2020.
