Artists residing in Arizona, 18 years of age or older, who are not currently represented by a gallery, may submit work for consideration. Works submitted must be original works of art completed by the artist within the last two years. Works previously exhibited in @Central Gallery and artists who have had a solo exhibition in @Central Gallery in the past two years are not eligible for submission. Artists may submit work in any media for consideration; however, artists may be asked to provide pedestals or any other display materials required for three-dimensional work or work that requires special installation. Artists selected for exhibition will be responsible for delivery and retrieval of their artwork. The artist will also be responsible for framing or any other costs incurred to ensure that the artwork is exhibition ready.
Submissions will be juried by a panel consisting of the @Central Gallery Coordinator and local artists and art professionals. Selections will be made based on aesthetic quality, artistic merit, technical ability and appropriateness for the library setting. Four to five exhibitions will be selected to feature in the gallery in the upcoming year. Exhibitions will be approximately 10 weeks in length. Group exhibitions may be created based on the submissions received. Artists will be notified within six weeks of the submission deadline.
Sales are encouraged; however it is not necessary for your work to be for sale to be considered for exhibition. All transactions will be handled by the artist. @Central Gallery does not take a commission, but asks that a donation of 20% from works sold be made to the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
