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 2016 and Spring 2017 academic year. Deadline to submit is Friday, April 29.

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 webpage with the application.
