Exhibition Proposals

 

Currently accepting Exhibition Proposals for the 2019-2020 school year.  

The Western Illinois University Art Gallery, located in Macomb, Illinois, presents a schedule of changing exhibitions throughout the academic year to introduce WIU students, faculty and staff, as well as the western Illinois region, to a variety of art forms in a wide range of mediums.  

We encourage visual artists to submit exhibition proposals for solo, two-person, and group exhibitions.  

The University Art Gallery will provide accepted artists with a reasonable stipend to assist with travel, mileage reimbursement or shipping expenses, depending on needs and circumstances. In addition, the Department of Art may offer an honorarium to select artists to help cover expenses associated with a Visiting Artist workshop on campus.  

Your exhibition proposal must include:

  • CV
  • Artist statement
  • Exhibition thesis and description of proposed exhibition
  • 15-20 images labeled with title, size, date, and medium
