Photo-Solo Exhibit Proposals / Calls and Submissions

June 2, 2024

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $50


Celebrating the start of its third decade of exhibitions, the Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit proposals of original lens-based bodies of work for consideration during the 2024/25 exhibit season.

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. Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media.

Anyone can submit a proposal. Artists should bear in mind the need for a consistent and very strong body of work when submitting. Quality of documentation/images affects the committee’s impression of the submitting artist.

Each proposal must be accompanied by a $50 non-refundable submission fee.

Includes exhibitor honorarium of $100 for each solo exhibiting artist, and new Grand Jury Award of $1,000 for one jury-selected work from among the exhibits on view.
