WKMA’s Panoramic Gallery seeking submissions
William King Museum of Art is now accepting submissions for Panoramic Gallery exhibitions during the coming year. Regional artists are juried into one month long self-curated exhibitions. Postmark deadline for all submissions is January 13, 2017.
Callie Hietala, Director of Exhibitions at WKMA, says, “Our other galleries are devoted to contemporary art, cultural heritage, or world fine art. This space [the Panoramic Gallery] is freer– if you’re from this region and you’re making art, no matter what kind, you have a space to display it. The Museum is proud of the Panoramic artists that have shown here and we hope they pride themselves in showing in our gallery as well.”
All regional artists are invited to submit a portfolio of recent work for solo or group exhibitions. Also encouraged are self-curated group exhibitions based on a theme or concept. We are considering projects in all media.
All submissions should include: cover letter; brief artist bio and statement; up to twenty digital slides on a CD at 300dpi for printing; slide identification sheet with title, year, medium, and dimension for each work; and a self-addressed stamped envelope if you want your materials returned.
Portfolios can be dropped off at the Museum or mailed to: Portfolio Submission, William King Museum of Art, PO Box 2256, Abingdon, Virginia 24212.
If your portfolio is selected, you will be notified individually. All portfolios will be reviewed twice before taken from the selection process. Only one portfolio per artist/curator per year will be accepted.
