Open call for 2020 art exhibit proposals

The Georgetown Public Library is now accepting proposals for exhibits to take place in the library’s three exhibit spaces in 2020. Proposals will be accepted March 1-May 15, 2019.

You can submit your proposal in one of two ways: online (this option is easy, and is strongly preferred) or printed. Proposals for art exhibits in the Georgetown Public Library require the same information whether they are submitted online or on paper:

  • Proposed exhibit title
  • Description of proposed exhibit concept
  • Exhibit locations you would prefer (second floor Bridge Gallery, second floor Hall Gallery, or first floor Cafe Gallery, including the wall near the public use computers and two walls by the Red Poppy Coffee Co. counter)
  • Up to six images of your work
  • The URL to your website (optional)
  • A description of your artwork in general
  • A little about your art background, with the option to upload or attach a resume
  • Your availability to install and remove an exhibit in 2020

All proposal applicants will receive notification by email no later than June 1, 2019 of their acceptance status. Proposals that are not selected for 2020 may be considered in the case of cancellations.
