Well Well Projects in Portland, OR is excited to announce an Open Call for Proposals!

Well Well Projects is accepting proposals for a 2-5 person group exhibition. Please submit 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 de-installation, and gallery sit for the opening and closing weekends. Upon acceptance, the works must be ready and available to exhibit in January 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 January.

Well Well Projects co-founders will select the exhibition. The selected proposal will be supported with a 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, Well Well Projects will only consider applications wherein at least one participating artist currently lives inside of a 120-mile radius from Portland.
