Exhibition Proposal Guidelines
Thank you for requesting information about exhibiting at the Cincinnati Arts Association's Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery. The Weston Art Gallery is a non-profit exhibition space devoted primarily to the promotion of local and regional artists. The gallery is programmed almost two years in advance. While the gallery accepts unsolicited applications from artists, curators, and organizations on an ongoing basis, these proposals are only officially reviewed in late fall by a committee made up of the gallery director, the assistant director, and members of the area arts community. It is recommended that you review our Web site first for a sense of the exhibition spaces and variety of work we exhibit. We are currently accepting proposals for the 2014-15 exhibition season.
Recommendations from the Exhibitions Review Committee enable the gallery director to design a season which is presented to the president of the Cincinnati Arts Association and the Weston Art Gallery Support Committee for consideration. Cincinnati Arts Association administers the Aronoff Center, of which the Weston Art Gallery is a part, along with Music Hall. All proposals are given careful consideration, but there is a period of time involved in reviewing the submissions. Final decisions regarding the 2014-15 exhibition season will not be made until approximately four months following the review.
In order to be reviewed, you must submit the following materials: Artists should send a current résumé, an artist's statement, and no more than 10 images of current work on CD or DVD (if applicable). The preferred format for individual images is JPEG. It is recommended that you include image caption information (dimensions, media, title, date) at the bottom of each picture so that it is easily read by the committee. Please note: electronic files should open in proper size and orientation and should not be embedded in PowerPoint.
Curators should send a current résumé, description of proposed project, and no more than 20 images (see format details above) of proposed artists.
Please note that we do not accept original work, models or e-mailed submissions. We cannot be responsible for any materials that are sent to us. Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return of materials. The deadline for proposals each year is August 31. Proposals should be mailed to:
