The King Street Gallery in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Montgomery College is calling for artists to explore, expand, define, engage, meditate on, interrogate, and converse with the color blue. Proposals for solo or group exhibitions are invited.
The deadline for proposals is January 22, 2023, at 11:59 p.m.
The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center has a number of spaces available for mounting exhibitions that support the academic mission of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. This open call is for our King Street Gallery, the largest exhibition space in the Cafritz Arts Center. This light filled, 1050 square foot gallery is in the main atrium of the building. Its prominent location, open design, and extremely high ceilings (30 feet+) make it a great venue for major exhibitions. While much of this gallery space is visible from the main lobby of the building, and through the windows that front onto the street, it does maintain gallery hours and is locked after hours. The gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.– 5 p.m.
Exhibitions are generally scheduled a year in advance to compliment the academic calendar. The exhibitions in the King Street Gallery are 4-5 weeks long and emphasize two-person or small group shows. Single artist applications may be paired with a complimentary artist or artists to better utilize the space. Curated proposals are encouraged.
