Open call for exhibition proposals for our 2019 season.

Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s mission is to enliven neighborhoods through arts and cultural experiences that embrace diversity, foster creativity and build community. KHAC strives to stimulate conversation and create social change through the practice of art. We invite artists and curators to partner with us in this mission through the presentation of diverse visual art exhibitions.

Proposals may be submitted for solo or group exhibitions or curatorial projects in all media. We are also receptive to hosting a variety of events in conjunction with exhibitions (workshops, discussions, performances, etc.)

Kennedy Heights Arts Center offers two beautiful galleries. The Kennedy Gallery contains over 2,000 square feet of exhibition space in a converted historic mansion with hardwood floors and contemporary museum track lighting. Each show typically includes 40-50 pieces, depending on size and type.

The Lindner Gallery in our Carl, Robert, Richard and Dorothy Lindner Annex is 700 square feet with wood floors and high ceilings, adjacent to our event center. Work in this gallery must be two-dimensional. Each show typically includes 15-25 pieces, depending on size.

Deadline for submissions is May 31, 2018.
Proposals will be selected by a jury of professional artists and curators based on quality of the work; diversity of approach, media and style for the year; and how the show contributes to KHAC’s mission. Artists will be notified by September 1, 2018.

Submission guidelines: To be considered, please send an exhibition description, artist statement, bio/CV and up to 10 images of your work in jpeg format. Please label images “artist name_title”. All images presented must be indicative of the style, quality, and theme of the exhibition. Detail images are allowed if necessary to show an important feature of an artwork.

Send proposals and images to: curator@kennedyarts.org
Or mail on a CD/DVD to:
Kennedy Heights Arts Center
6546 Montgomery Rd.
