Studio Gallery MFA Invitational

By East City Art Editorial Team on November 27, 2023

Deadline: Sun, December 10 2023

Studio Gallery invites students currently enrolled in a visual arts MFA program in the Washington DC-Baltimore region, or who graduated from such an MFA program in the past two years, to submit a work for consideration in a show with their peers. Studio Gallery is an artist cooperative located in the heart of Dupont Circle in Washington DC, near other important art venues. Its shows are attended by a large number of visitors and thus provide significant exposure to a wide audience.

The exhibition has no specific theme and is intended as a window into the vision and aesthetics that MFA students are exploring here and now. The exhibition will run from January 3-27, 2024. Members of the gallery will jury the works and select a Best-in-Show awardee.

All media are accepted. Works must be ready to install and not be larger than 40 inches at their longest side. The gallery has a wall wire hanging system and small pedestals available. For digital works, participants must provide the equipment for installation.

Accepted works must be delivered or otherwise received by December 18.

There is no application fee.

Submit a 300 dpi image of your work, or a link to a brief video clip (2 min max), along with your name, title of the work, dimensions, media, year it was made, and, if you wish to sell it, the sale price. Please also submit a brief bio (200 words max) and a brief artist statement describing your practice and/or the work you are submitting (200 words max). Submissions must be sent to Irene Pantelis at
