CALL TO ARTISTS - Regional - Knoxville - Deadline: January 18, 2010


Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church Art Gallery
Knoxville, Tennessee

The Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Gallery is now planning exhibitions for July 2010 through December 2011. Artists living within 250 miles of Knoxville are encouraged to submit proposals.

This premier not-for-profit gallery, located a few miles west of The University of Tennessee, programs six exhibitions per year, showcasing regional artists working in a wide variety of styles, media, and genres. The gallery can only show work that is (primarily) two-dimensional and ready to hang. Work must be appropriate to audiences of all ages. The TVUUC Art Gallery Committee reserves the right to pair artists for two-person exhibitions, but will also consider artists for one-person exhibitions as well as group shows by arts organizations. Exhibitions typically run for two months.
To learn more about TVUUC, please visit our Web site: http://www.tvuuc.org.
The nonrefundable entry fee for submitting a proposal is $30. The gallery provides publicity and hosts a reception for the artist(s) whose work is selected.
Artists should send up to eight slides or a CD with eight or fewer (jpeg, 1200 pixels on longest side of) images of the work (or type of work) they want to show, a one-paragraph bio-sketch, and a brief statement or description of the work. Slides should be labeled with the artist’s name, title, media, size, and top. Those who want the submitted material returned to them should enclose an envelope into which it would fit, along with adequate postage.

Incomplete proposals will not be considered.

Proposals should be postmarked by January 18, 2010, and sent to:
Art Gallery Committee
Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church
2931 Kingston Pike
Knoxville, TN 37919

Artists will be notified before March 15, 2010. For further information please e-mail Susan Lapekas (susanlapekas@yahoo.com).
