Commission announces an open call
submissions for the Chase Gallery
Deadline August 14th, 2015
The Chase Gallery is a community art exhibition space adjacent to the City Council Chambers in the Spokane City Hall, 808 W Spokane Falls Blvd., Spokane, WA. It features a wide range of exhibitions by local and regional artists from contemporary to traditional. The visitors to the Chase Gallery include art aficionados, citizens, tourists, and inadvertent art viewers coming to meetings and to conduct city business. Gallery hours are weekdays 8 am to 5 pm and throughout the City Council Meetings on Monday evenings. Chase Gallery receptions are part of Spokane's First Friday event. Exhibitions are for three months duration. Please consider the public nature of the audience and the exhibition space.
Proposals can come from individual artists, groups of artists, art associations or affiliations, or curators from the Inland Northwest region of Washington, Idaho and Oregon. The gallery has limited equipment for digital media and limited sculpture display cases. Extremely small works and jewelry are not appropriate. All artworks are insured by the City of Spokane while on exhibit but artworks in transit must be insured by the owner or representative of the artwork.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Programming (Exhibiting) Committee of the Spokane Arts Commission for the 2016 and 2017 exhibition years.
Artists should provide:
- Resume of art exhibits and related experience
- Portfolio of images of exemplary works
- Artist statement or description of what is proposed
Deadline for submission will be August 14th, 2015 at 5PM PST.
