Elon University accepts proposals for small group or solo exhibitions every year for following academic year. Priority will be given to work that is in dialogue with contemporary practices and ideas. The exhibition would ideally then be used to expand or frame conversations about contemporary definitions of art, materiality, and/or process. Accepted artists will be asked to interact with the Elon Art students in the way of critiques, conversations, opening reception and formal gallery talk. Studio workshops could also be considered to align with gallery installations/exhibitions.

All mediums will be considered.  Modest honorariums offered for travel, shipping costs, speaking fees, etc. All art is fully insured while on exhibit in the gallery.
