To Apply: http://bit.ly/HillyerOpenCall2018
IA&A at Hillyer (formerly Hillyer Art Space) is currently accepting proposals for our 2019-2020 exhibition season. Through this competitive selection process, accepted artists are awarded a month-long exhibition in one of our three gallery rooms to present their work.
Selection Process: All proposals that meet the gallery’s qualifications are reviewed and selected by our Artist Advisory Committee, which is chaired by the Hillyer’s Director, Allison Nance. Accepted artists also benefit from our Advisory Program, where our highly qualified Artist Advisory Committee works individually with each artist to help them prepare their exhibitions and establish themselves in the DC arts community. Read more here: http://athillyer.org/about/artist-advisory-committee/
Qualifications: Hillyer focuses on under represented artists. We accept proposals from regional artists that live within 150 miles of Washington, DC and have not had a solo exhibition in the last three years at a professional gallery or art space. We also accept proposals from international artists that are both living and working internationally. While we primarily select proposals for solo presentations, we do occasionally accept proposals for group exhibitions submitted by the artists themselves or by a curator.
*Please note that Hillyer is not a commercial establishment and does not sell the artwork on exhibit. Any interested parties will be put directly in contact with the artist.
