Call for 2018 Exhibit Proposals
Each year Robbin Gallery hosts seven monthly exhibits that are open to individual artists or artist groups outside of our membership.
Robbin Gallery is housed in The Historic Robbinsdale Library, a designated historic building. The structure’s character and its high, spacious windows create a unique ambiance for art exhibits.
The Gallery can accommodate shows from 24 to 60 pieces depending on their size. The main gallery comprises approximately 97 linear feet of wall space. In addition, four moveable units can add an up to 72 feet of wall space. These units can be arranged to increase the wall space for many works or decrease the wall space for fewer works.
The fee for each exhibit is $125 ($75 for members). Robbin Gallery’s sales commission is 20% (10% for members). A monthly show typically consists of 16 days under our current scheduled hours. The exihibitor may open the gallery by appointment as well.
The gallery is staffed by volunteer members however as the exhibiting artist you are required to staff the gallery at least four times during the course of your exhibit. You may need to make arrangements with Robbin Gallery members to staff the gallery.
All Proposals should include:
- At least 12-15 jpeg images representative of the artwork you wish to exhibit.
Group proposals should include images from each participating artist to total 12-15.
- A document listing title, media, and dimensions of each submitted image.
- A statement about your work and the concept or theme of the exhibition.
If a group show is proposed a brief statement from each artist or some sort of unifying
theme would be appropriate.
- A resume or curriculum vitae with contact information.
Proposals can be submitted on CDs or via email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Images for email should be saved as jpeg medium compression and under 2000 pixels wide.
The Robbin Gallery Selection Committee will review proposals. Artists approved for shows will be notified and will receive an Exhibit Agreement outlining the terms of the show. Gallery fees are due when you return the signed Exhibit Agreement.
