Visiting Artist Program
The Visiting Artist Program occupies a major place in the gallery’s yearly schedule. Exhibitions in the program run concurrently with GRO artist member exhibitions. The program is an important way that GRO shares exhibition space with artists not affiliated with the organization.
Who may apply: We are seeking artists whose work is engaged with these current issues of public concern: the environmental crisis, social justice, including anti-racism, and immigration. GRO embraces diversity, equity access and inclusion. Artists from historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
The program hosts individual and small group shows 5 or 6 times per year. You are also invited to apply as a curator for a group exhibition on one of these topics.
The program does not currently offer financial support for Visiting Artist exhibitions. Exhibiting artists must transport or ship work to and from the gallery at their own expense. The gallery does not require a fee for use of the space and does provide printed publicity and a social media and newsletter campaign. There is a small honorarium for curators.
Call for Proposals: We are reviewing applications for exhibitions starting Dec. 31, 2022 through Dec. 2023. Apply now for exhibitions through May. Final deadline is February 1, 2023 at midnight.
