The Ohio Art League is accepting exhibition proposals for its Short North gallery for January, February & March 2005. The Ohio Art League gallery presents twelve "Member Curated Exhibitions" (MCE) each year. The League invites its 800+ artists/members to submit written proposals to the exhibition committee and to participate in the jurying process that helps to determine gallery programming. Exhibitions open gallery hop Saturday and run one month. OAL provides color postcard invitations, news releases, an opening reception and a fully staffed gallery in Columbus' arts district.
This is a call for exhibition curators: The curator's role is to conceive, visualize and organize the art and artist(s) proposed for the show. Exhibitions can be theme based, media-based, retrospective or otherwise. Proposals must be submitted using an OAL application form, available through the gallery and online. Curators should describe the concept of the show in a brief written page, and provide relevant support materials. Support materials should include twelve slides representative of the artist(s) in the proposal. Materials such as video, printed photographs or other applicable media may be considered. Please contact the gallery with any questions. Proposals for self-curated solo shows are not considered.
