Submissions

Juergensen Gallery logo

The Juergensen Gallery accepts exhibition proposals for solo and group shows on an ongoing basis. These proposals are reviewed by the Gallery Committee on a quarterly basis. Exhibitions are programmed up to two years in advance. The gallery invites emerging and established artists or groups to submit original artwork for review. All mediums are encouraged to apply. We welcome all 2-D, 3-D, or installation work in a variety of mediums. The exhibition program includes three shows during the fall and spring semesters, and a summer show upon availability. Each show will be displayed for approximately one month.

As we are a community college with a burgeoning fine arts program, our emphasis is toward our student body. We are seeking artists who can not only display their work professionally, but also provide a one-hour lecture component, as well. Traditionally, the lecture precedes the opening reception and is held during normal gallery hours. In addition, we seek artists who can provide a workshop for our students. Workshops are held in conjunction with classes. Honorariums for both the lecture and the workshop are available.
