Overture Calls For Visual Artists To Exhibit in 19/20 Gallery Season
Overture Center for the Arts is now accepting applications for Gallery I, II, and III for the 2018/19 Season. Applications are being accepted online, and are due Monday, Mar. 18, 2019. Guidelines can be found at overture.org/callforartists. There is no financial fee to apply.
An informational meeting about the Overture Galleries application process will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 6 from 6-7 p.m. in the Wisconsin Studio located on the third floor of Overture Center for the Arts.
A Curatorial Workshop will be held on Thursday, Feb. 7 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Wisconsin Studio located on the third floor of Overture Center for the Arts. Learn about curating a successful exhibition at Overture, with application process and requirements and how Overture supports curated exhibitions.
Overture Galleries I, II and III serve as entryways to the Capitol Theater. Gallery I is located on the first floor, Gallery II on the second floor and Gallery III on the third floor. Four exhibition cycles will be selected for each of the three galleries for the annual season. Each exhibit cycle lasts approximately three months. Applicants are encouraged to view the spaces prior to submitting an application. Artists may apply individually or as a group, and we also encourage curatorial proposals. More information can be found here.
Individual applicants who are accepted will be curated into a two-person or group exhibition. Group applicants and curatorial proposals must include artwork by a minimum of two artists, the majority of whom reside in Dane County. Group and curated shows must also be organized with a strong conceptual and visual theme. Overture can give administrative support and guidance to individuals or groups who are interested in curating a show or organizing a group show. Preference is given to artists who have not shown work in the Overture Galleries in the past three years. Artists who have recently exhibited in a large group show at Overture Galleries may re-apply as an individual or as a member of another group.
Overture Gallery staff aims to support artists and organizations in the application and exhibition process. Overture Galleries I, II and III selections are made by a committee of Dane County artists and art professionals. Overture aims to exhibit a full range of the cultural diversity of Dane County.
Overture Galleries are sponsored by Norman Berven & Barbara Mittelstaedt Berven, The Arts Access Fund, a component fund of the Madison Community Foundation and by contributions to Overture Center for the Arts.
