Smith College Department of Art: Open Solo Exhibition Call: (Due Sep. 15)

The Oresman Gallery, located in the Smith College Department of Art, is an exhibition space dedicated to showing new work by emerging and established artists. The Oresman is currently seeking proposals in any media, for solo show opportunities for our 2020-2021 exhibition season. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of Smith College studio art faculty. To coincide with Smith College’s upcoming, Year of Climate Change, we are particularly interested in work that addresses contemporary issues of climate, environment and ecologies, or work that socially engages with these topics. Each exhibition will be installed from 6-8 weeks, and scheduled throughout the calendar year.

The Oresman Gallery will provide artists with a remuneration of up to $400 to cover documented exhibition costs. Exhibitors are responsible for installing and de-installing their work, with the assistance of a student gallery intern. The gallery is 12’ x 20’ with 10’ walls, and one window wall.
