Arts Place Announces Open Call for Exhibit Proposals


            Arts Place is currently accepting proposals for its Portland, Indiana center, which includes a main gallery and two smaller galleries. The regional arts council is seeking innovative proposals from artists in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois. Proposals for both 2- and 3- dimensional media for solo and/or group shows are welcomed.


For more information, please contact Lauren Lane, Visual Arts Director, by phone at 260-726-4809, toll-free at 866-539-9911, or email .


            Arts Place, Inc. is a nonprofit regional arts council that operates three centers in East Central Indiana and West Central Ohio. Arts Place is dedicated to presenting quality exhibitions and educational programs. The galleries exhibit the work of both emerging and established artists.


            Exhibits run for 5-6 weeks. When possible, we will have an opening reception. All exhibits are supported by press and insurance coverage and are free and open to the public. While works may be for sale, Arts Place puts its emphasis on the artistic quality of the work being presented. Arts Place takes a small commission of 30% on works sold in its galleries.


To apply, submit the following information. Electronic submissions are preferred. Proposals are due by March 30th, 2014.


1.      10 images of recent work completed in the last 2 years. Please include detailed information with each image including title, medium, dimensions, date completed, etc.

2.      Description of proposed exhibition

3.      Current resume

4.      Artist statement


            Exhibit proposals are reviewed annually. The next review of the exhibit proposals will be in early April, 2014. Proposals and artist images are reviewed by a panel of artists and art educators.


Activities of Arts Place, Inc. are provided, in part, with support from The Portland Foundation and the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.  The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this organization with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
