Manifest Gallery, OH/ Photo Solo Exhibit Proposals/ Call for Artists

Deadline
Submission fee
$ 50.00

Overview

On average, one-third of Manifest’s exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City, San Francisco, Canada, and Hong Kong. It is important to our non-profit mission that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects. The group shows provide diversity of approach, media, style, and geographic origin, while the solo exhibits provide a deeper insight into an artist’s vision.

Well over 250 artists exhibit (through group and solo shows combined) and over 4000 patrons visit the gallery each year; thousands of artists submit works to thematic projects produced at the gallery. Our exhibits are routinely reviewed in local and sometimes national news and art publications (including Sculpture Magazine, Drawing Magazine, and Art Papers among others). And while our focus is on providing a museum-like experience of visual art, patrons and collectors, including museums, watch Manifest and our publications for future acquisitions and exhibitors. We believe this makes the spots in our schedule reserved for solo or proposed exhibits highly valuable. Manifest’s role as participating venue in every FotoFocus Biennial to-date further adds value to exhibiting at the gallery during this specific timeframe.

Manifest is eager to receive proposals for solo exhibitions of various types of photo-based visual art for this season-launching exhibition. We will review them starting in mid-April in consideration for the September 28-October 26, 2018 exhibition period. No notifications are made until the final selection is decided (anticipated by June 1st). Our goal is to select from one to three solo exhibitions for this timeframe. These will be concurrent with two competitive FotoFocus- sponsored group exhibitions at Manifest.
