Deadline: February 1, 2017 (11:59 pm EST)


BlackRock Center for the Arts invites artists working in all media to apply for solo and group exhibitions to be presented in the Kay Gallery and Terrace Gallery from January 2018 – December 2018. Visual artists, independent curators, and coordinators of artist collectives and arts organizations who are over the age of 18 and live, work, or attend school in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia are encouraged to submit exhibit proposals. BlackRock hosts exhibitions of contemporary art by emerging and established artist working in all media, to include site-specific installations, video and other time-based media, performance, new technologies and experimental forms. BlackRock provides curatorial and exhibition support, publicity via print and social media, as well as hosting community engagement events. While BlackRock previously required that all two-dimensional artwork be hung from the gallery cable hanging system, we now allow alternative installation methods, to include work that may require nails, screws or other fasteners. Artists are responsible for transport of artworks, assistance with installation, and attending scheduled events. Application Deadline: Wednesday, February 1, 2017 (11:59 pm EST)


Entry Fee: $35.00
