IMPERIAL – Artists are invited to submit applications to display artwork in any medium at the Juanita Salazar Lowe Art Gallery at Imperial Valley College. Applications will be considered for exhibits for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 academic year. Deadline to submit is Friday, April 28.

Artists are sought for group exhibits. Individual artist proposals will be paired with appropriate artwork by other artists to create group shows. Applications will be screened by the college’s gallery committee which consists of art faculty with representatives from the community.

The Gallery will provide exhibit promotion, regular open hours, and a public reception. The audience is vibrant, enthusiastic and dedicated.

Shipping, travel, framing, insurance, and other expenses are the responsibility of the artist. As part of a community college, programming is dependent entirely on donations so working funds are limited.

Please send letter of interest, resume, contact information, artist or group statement, CD with 15-20 .jpeg images and .pdf list of images. Include a self addressed, stamped envelope for return of materials, if desired.

The application may be completed online here:


Please be sure to read the Guideline for Exhibitions listed on the website with the application.

Send to Juanita Lowe Art Gallery (attention Carol Hegarty, gallery director) Imperial Valley College, 380 E. Aten Road, Imperial, CA, 92251.

The Juanita Lowe Gallery encourages excellence, and is dedicated to promoting public interest and participation in the arts on the Imperial Valley College campus and in the greater community.
