Well Well Projects in Portland, Oregon

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 February 2021. The exhibition will run February 6-28 with an opening reception on Saturday, February 6th. Emerging and mid-career artists are eligible to apply, and all mediums will be considered.

Applications due: January 9, 11:59pm PST
Fee: $20
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 $20. We aim to keep application fees affordable to not place an unreasonable financial burden on working artists in our community. All fees support our artist-run space!

Selected guests are expected to arrange for their installation and deinstallation, with the support of Well Well members. Upon acceptance, the works must be ready and available to exhibit in February 2021. 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 February.

Well Well Projects co-founders will select the exhibition. The selected proposal will be supported with a First Saturday reception, professional photo documentation, a dedicated exhibition page on our website, promotion on our social media, the option of hosting a virtual gallery talk, and gallery install supplies.

Please note, this is an opportunity designed for artists living within the greater Portland region. We will only consider applications wherein at least one participating artist currently lives inside of a 50 mile radius from the city.

Well Well Projects is a new artist run space located in the Disjecta Contemporary Art Center and opening its doors in January of 2021. Alongside our regular solo and group exhibitions, we’re developing a series of artists workshops and classes, lectures, and a shop selling publications, art objects and editions.
