Call for Proposals from Confluence Member’s Art Gallery – due 2/17/12

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Deadline for Submissions: February 17th 2012

The Confluence Member’s Art Gallery is operated seasonally in the Yukon School of Visual Arts. It is a volunteer-run project that always welcomes new volunteers and submissions.

Over the past 5 summers a committee of volunteers has coordinated a series of themed group exhibits representing a broad range of local artists. Proposals are now being accepted for solo, group or curated shows for the 2012 season. Selected exhibitors will be responsible for all aspects of their show (hanging, lighting, opening receptions, gallery-sitting, takedown and clean up, etc.) KIAC staff will assist with promotion and will provide basic hanging supplies and direction as needed.

Exhibitors are responsible for ensuring the gallery is open during advertised hours by recruiting volunteer gallery sitters or by opening the gallery themselves. Selected exhibitors must be, or become, members of the Dawson City Arts Society (DCAS). Yearly memberships are $15 for individuals / $25 for families.
