Submission Guidelines for Exhibit Consideration


Caldwell Arts Council accepts portfolio submissions in late December/early January to consider for exhibition 13-24 months later (i.e., we’ll accept portfolio submissions through January 31, 2015 to consider for the 2016 exhibit year).


We have two galleries: the Caldwell Arts Council gallery hosts monthly changing exhibits typically featuring artwork by three or more artists.  The Caldwell Memorial Hospital Art-in-Healing Gallery (MRI wing, Mulberry Street entrance) hosts quarterly changing exhibits typically featuring up to 25 works by one artist or a group.


Your submission can be presented as follows: (no slides, email, printed photos, or website submissions please.)


Mail or deliver a CD with at least seven good quality digital images of your artwork. These images should be either a specific collection of artwork you wish to exhibit at the Arts Council, or good representation of similar work you intend to create for an exhibit (specify which).


·        Include with this CD a printed list including each art piece name, size of the art piece, the medium of the art piece, and year it was created. 


·        Briefly state your exhibition idea. How many art objects can you provide? Is there a proposed theme? Do you want to exhibit with another specific artist? (Have them send their portfolio to us as well.) What is unique about your work?


·        Write a little about yourself, your exhibition experience, group or one-person shows and your training, if any. Include your artist statement and bio.   


Mailing address is:  Exhibit Selection Committee, Caldwell Arts Council, PO Box 1613 (shipping/delivery address is 601 College Avenue SW) Lenoir NC 28645


Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at Caldwell Arts Council. The individuals who jury our exhibits are selected based on their geographic and art form diversity, and include a combination of both curators and artists. You will be notified in mid-to-late March of the jury’s decision regarding your artwork.
