Eight solo exhibitions are presented each year in the Rosewood Gallery. All media will be considered for exhibition, including video and installation pieces. The deadline for submission is February 1, 2013.
The City of Kettering insures all works while on exhibit and covers printing and distribution costs of an announcement mailer for each exhibit. A transportation and shipping honorarium of $100 is provided to artists. Any cost reimbursement requirements over and above the $100.00 honorarium should be listed and explained in the proposal. The Rosewood Gallery does not provide equipment for multimedia installations. The gallery walls are fabric covered and cannot be altered other than standard hanging fasteners. Various pedestals are available, special equipment, including A/V, needs to be provided by the artist. Educational programs and Artist Talks are encouraged.
The Rosewood Gallery specializes in the exhibition of contemporary art by emerging local, regional and national artists. It is dedicated to the encouragement and creation of new works and to the promotion of the visual arts in the Dayton, Ohio area. Proposals should be professionally presented; the Gallery Coordinator reserves the right to reject any illegible or incomplete presentations. Exhibit proposals should include the following:
1. A cover letter describing the proposed exhibition, any special installation requirements, and available dates.
2. A resume, an artist's statement and previous exhibition record.
3. Exactly ten (10) images and a corresponding list stating titles, media, dimensions and dates. The committee will be presented with only 10 images for consideration. If the work you are submitting is for example only, please be specific in your cover letter of what you proposed to present in the gallery if selected. Digital submissions should be in JPEG format, 1000 at widest/tallest dimension (72 dpi) and must be labeled with the artist’s last name and entry number corresponding with the list provided. Example: Lastname_1.jpg, Lastname_2.jpg
4. A self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like your submission information returned.
