Submitted By: HoffmanArtsNews@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Calling all artists! Hoffman Center invites artists to submit their proposal for 2023 art exhibits. We seek proposals that demonstrate artistic merit, engage viewers, and welcome community members and visitors into our 400 square-foot space.

Between August 15 and September 30, 2022, we are accepting submissions for exhibitions beginning February 2023 through December 2023. To be considered, all work must be submitted electronically using the Submittable Online Platform. Each submission requires a $5 fee to help offset the cost of the online platform license.

Our not-for-profit art center gallery features:
• Artists with a connection to the North Oregon coast
• Visiting artists who lead Hoffman workshops, demonstrations or lectures
• A variety of artists: we do not represent artists and do not repeat artists who have shown within the previous two years.

The Hoffman Gallery will:
Design and install each exhibit
Promote shows through local print media, social media, Hoffman e-newsletters, flyers
Host an opening artist reception when possible
Staff the gallery with volunteers
Receive 30% sales commission, 25% if shared with a representing gallery.

Artists are expected to:
Provide artwork that is available for purchase unless otherwise arranged
Provide consistently framed artwork for easy and secure hanging or display, including professional art hanging hardware for all wall mounted art
Market their shows through their personal websites, newsletters, social media, email
Participate in the exhibition reception when possible and give a brief artist talk
Receive 70% of sales price, or 50% if shared with a representing gallery
Deliver and unpack work prior to the exhibit and remove packing materials
Pack and pick up unsold work at the end of the exhibit according to the published schedule.
