Rosewood Gallery Exhibition Proposal Guidelines

The City of Kettering, Ohio, and the Kettering Arts Council invite artists working in any media to submit proposals for exhibition in the Rosewood Gallery during the 2013 Exhibition Season (January – December). Proposals must be postmarked by February 3, 2012. 

The Rosewood Gallery specializes in the exhibition of contemporary art by emerging local, regional and national artists. It is dedicated to the encouragement and creation of new works and to the promotion of the visual arts in the Dayton, Ohio, area. Eight solo exhibitions are presented each year in the Rosewood Gallery, sponsored by the City of Kettering Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts, with support from the Kettering Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council. View current exhibitions.

A selection committee composed of regional art professionals will make recommendations from submissions of work for exhibition. Notifications of the jurors’ decision will be mailed by the end of May of the jury year.

All media will be considered for exhibition, including video and installation pieces. Proposals should be professionally presented; the Gallery Coordinator reserves the right to reject any illegible or incomplete presentations. Exhibit proposals should include the following:

1. A cover letter describing the proposed exhibition, any special installation requirements, and available dates.

 2. A resume, artist’s statement, and previous exhibition record.

 3. Exactly ten (10) images and a corresponding list stating titles, media and dimensions. The committee will be presented with only 10 images for consideration, regardless of how many more are submitted. If the work you are submitting is for example only, please be specific in your explaination of what you proposed to present in the gallery if selected. Digital submissions should be in JPEG format, 1000 at widest/tallest dimention (72 dpi) and must be labeled with the artist’s last name and entry number corresponding with the list provided. Example: LASTNAME_1.jpg

4. A self-addressed, stamped envelope for notification and return of information and slides.

The City of Kettering insures all works while on exhibit and covers printing and distribution costs of an announcement mailer for each exhibit. A transportation and shipping honorarium is usually provided to artists. Any cost reimbursement requirements over and above the $100 honorarium should be listed and explained in the proposal. All inquiries and materials should be mailed to the address below.
