Giertz Gallery at Parkland College seeks exhibition proposals in all genres of contemporary approaches to art making by solo artists, collaborative groups, or curators. Giertz Gallery is a professionally designed gallery devoted primarily to education through contemporary art. Giertz Gallery hosts seven exhibitions per year including two student exhibitions, one Art and Design Faculty Show, and a National Ceramics Invitational. Other shows vary depending on applications and the vision of the Art Gallery Advisory Board. Exhibits are scheduled for approximately six weeks. The artist is responsible for expenses and insurance while the artwork is being transported to the gallery. Giertz Gallery provides return shipping or an honorarium to defray return travel expenses.

Please submit 20 images; an identifying list of titles, sizes, dates, and media; a resume; and an artist statement related to this body of work. Only complete proposal packages including all information listed in the Proposal Guidelines will be reviewed. For further information please contact giertzgallery@parkland.edu

Applications are accepted on an on-going basis for future review. However, application materials must be received by April 1, 2018, to be included in the next review cycle. Giertz Gallery is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution providing access to exhibitions, arts and education programs and employment without regard to age, race, color, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, veteran's status, political affiliation, or disability.
