Well Well Projects in Portland, OR is excited to announce an Open Call for Exhibition Opportunity! We will be accepting applications for a 2-5 person group show during January 2023. The exhibition will run January 7-29 with an opening reception on Saturday, January 7th. Curators and emerging and mid-career artists are eligible to apply. All mediums will be considered.

Apply by email!

Well Well Projects is accepting applications for 2-5 person group exhibition proposals. We’re looking for proposals that are well organized, include high-quality documentation of the artwork, and show a strong thematic and conceptual through-line.
There is an application fee of $25. All fees support our artist-run space!
Selected guests are expected to arrange for their installation and de-installation, and gallery sit for the opening and closing weekends. Upon acceptance, the works must be ready and available to exhibit in January 2022. Works do not necessarily need to adhere to traditional exhibition standards of being framed, but they must be ready for install upon delivery to the gallery. The exhibition will run for the 4-week duration of January.
Well Well Projects directors will select the exhibition. The selected proposal will be supported with a Saturday reception, show title vinyl for the outside door, professional photo documentation, a dedicated exhibition page on our website, promotion on our social media, the option of hosting a gallery talk (virtual or in-person), and gallery install supplies.
Please note, we will only consider applications wherein at least one participating artist currently lives inside of a 120-mile radius from Portland.

Well Well opened its doors in January 2021 with the intent of giving artists gallery representation and enriching our home base in the Oregon Center for Contemporary Art (formerly Disjecta). We aim for this space to serve as a launchpad for artists while open calls and other opportunities seek to reach a wider audience that expands outside the Pacific Northwest region.
Art exhibitions serve as an important foundation to the gallery space, and programming seeks to vary the ways in which Well Well Projects interacts with the Portland community and beyond. We wish to remain mindful of the fact that our community extends beyond the region, and that by providing opportunities for non-member artists we are improving their careers while also expanding the scope of what is shown in our region.
