Call for Artists
Proposals are now being accepted for the quarterly rotating art program within the University of Washington School of Law Brotman Galleria space. The Galleria is open to the public Monday—Friday, 8am—5pm. Each quarterly show may include 2D works that cover up to 80 linear feet of wall space. The Brotman Galleria space gets significant foot traffic during the week, and is also used for a number of special events each quarter, meaning that your work will be seen and appreciated by a wide audience.
Approximate Dates of Display
January 2—March 20, 2014; March 25-June 16, 2014
The deadline for submissions is December 5, 2013.
All artists are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Advocates for the Arts (AFTA) at University of Washington School of Law seeks to empower law students as informed, efficient, and ethical future leaders in Washington's artistic communities. Among other things, this means building cultural quotients and awareness of what is happening in our arts communities.
To this end, AFTA curates and presents quarterly exhibitions in the law school's main hallway, the Brotman Galleria. The Galleria faces south, and its two stories of floor-to-ceiling windows provide natural light for the gallery space. AFTA's Art in the Law School Committee is appointed to solicit and review proposals to ensure artistic excellence, aesthetic breadth, regional representation, and cultural diversity in these exhibitions.
Art Curation and Selection
AFTA's rotating art program is committed to presenting individual and group shows of visual works by artists of all cultures, media, techniques, and styles. The content of the proposed works must be of a nature suitable for display by a public entity for the enjoyment of a diverse audience of all ages. Works will be selected based on a number of factors, including aesthetic merits, overall concept, and subject matter.
Artwork is hung in the Brotman Galleria from an ArTech bar. Therefore all works must be able to be hung from hooks (e.g., works can be framed, be on a stretched canvas, or otherwise have loops/hooks on the top, sides, or back of the piece). Please contact AFTA with questions or concerns, and we will try to find a solution if your artwork does not currently meet this requirement.
What to Include in Your Proposal
Proposals must include detailed information about the proposed individual or group exhibition concept, and provide representative recent digital images of the proposed works. Please keep in mind the artwork requirements listed above.
Letter — Submit a short (less than 2 pages) letter describing your work and your proposed show. If submitting in a digital format, please ensure that the file is either a .DOC or .PDF.
Information — Include in your submission your name and contact information.
Digital Images — Submit ten (10) to twenty (20) .JPG or .PDF images (1 image per file), attached to an email. Files should be named as "XofY-last name of artist-title of work.jpg (or .pdf)" (for example, 1of4-Smith-wineharvest.jpg). Please include information about the size of each piece. Applicants are encouraged to test digital work samples prior to submission. Please note that the Art Committee may ask for more images, depending on the size of the proposed exhibition.
Please email your letter, information, and images to Brad Westmoreland at firstname.lastname@example.org with a CC to Charles Hausberg at email@example.com.
