Call For


Visual Art ,
submitted by
ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation Iris Goldstein


ARC Gallery is pleased to announce an Open Call for three fully funded Solo Exhibitions in August 2024. This Exhibition Award is made possible by a generous grant from the Athena Foundation in support of making solo show opportunities accessible to a broader audience. Visual artists of all disciplines, ages and geographic locations are encouraged to apply. The artists will be selected by the ARC cooperative based on the quality of their work and commitment to their practice.

Due to that nature of this call, examples of work submitted must be of the actual work to be exhibited, and include a clear plan of display within the gallery space. Work must be completed, available, and ready to display as of the date of submission. The ARC Exhibition Committee will make the final decision on which space the selected proposals will be installed.

Exhibitions for the three selected artists will take place in August 2024. Work will be installed on July 28, and the deinstall will occur on August 31. The Opening Reception will be August 2, 5-8pm. Selected artists will be expected to be present for all three dates, and to work with ARC members to install and deinstall their work. ARC will work with selected artists leading up to the installation and opening of the exhibitions. These exhibitions will be promoted on all ARC social media outlets.


This call is open to non-members, and non-affiliates with the purpose of bringing in innovative new work. All work submitted should have been completed within the last 5 years. ARC will favor artists who have a strong, cohesive body of work, a clearly communicated vision of their show, and a comprehensible and thoughtful artist statement. Artists with incomplete submissions will be automatically eliminated. Artists whose work is deemed excellent, but is not selected, will be added to a roster from which ARC can draw for future opportunities and curated exhibitions.
