The City of Savannah’s Department of Cultural Affairs is seeking artists to exhibit at the Cultural Arts Gallery in 2015. Cultural Arts Gallery serves the Savannah community with exhibitions and educational programming that strengthen awareness and stimulate dialogue through artistic expression.
The 1,700 square-foot gallery at Cultural Affairs is a community venue for the promotion of and education about the visual arts, via the display of contemporary art, design and fine crafts by local and regional artists. A full year of exhibitions is augmented with lectures, gallery tours, workshops and other programs to enhance the educational experience.
Exhibiting at Cultural Arts Gallery provides artists with an opportunity for a public reception, promotion, and exhibition experience, as well as exposure to Savannah’s visual art community. In conjunction with an exhibition, artists are required to develop and present a learning opportunity to the public such as a workshop, lecture or demonstration.
All mediums will be considered for a non-degree seeking solo or group exhibition, including video and installation pieces. Proposals should be professionally presented and should include a cover letter; a resume; an artist statement; a previous exhibition record; 10-12 digital images of work to be considered; and a self-addressed, and a stamped envelope if the proposal needs to be returned.
The deadline for submissions is September 5, 2014 at 4 p.m. Proposals should be submitted to Debra Zumstein, Arts Programs Coordinator, City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs, 9 W. Henry St., Savannah, GA 31401. Proposal guidelines are available online at savannahga.gov/arts or (912) 651-6783.
The City of Savannah is committed to provide leadership in fostering programs that educate and expose citizens to a rich and diverse range of cultural expressions, to support artistic programs that celebrate creativity, create educational opportunities, encourage economic growth and enhance Savannah’s reputation as a cultural destination.
