EXHIBITION SUBMISSIONS

The Arts Warehouse exhibition space houses an expansive 2000sqft gallery space with moveable walls, track and natural lighting featuring rotating exhibitions throughout the year. Exhibitions focus primarily on contemporary art to promote and provide exposure for local, national and international artists. The gallery is free and open to the public during Arts Warehouse open business hours. Artists interested in exhibition should submit an application via our Exhibition/Gallery Program or during one of our call to artist shows.

Gallery Submissions

Artists are encouraged to apply for the Arts Warehouse gallery space individually or as a group.  We are currently accepting submissions on a rolling basis for our exhibit programs. Upon submission, a committee of several qualified members from the local arts/non-arts community will evaluate, select, and assist the Arts Warehouse staff with selection and show scheduling. Submitting does not guarantee a show at the Arts Warehouse. Each selected show will hang for approximately two months, with an Arts Warehouse sponsored opening or closing reception.

Layout and Exhibition Guide

We want artwork to be showcased the best way possible, so we ask artists to read the Arts Warehouse Gallery Guide as they prepare to propose to exhibit at the Arts Warehouse. Chosen artists are responsible for reading and complying with the Arts Warehouse Gallery Guide when hanging/installing the exhibition with Arts Warehouse Staff. The Arts Warehouse onsite staff has the right to edit all exhibits and is the lead decision makers when hanging a show. Some shows will be curated by guest professionals from the community which will be announced in specific call to artists.

E-mail any questions to gdaniecg@mydelraybeach.com or call 561-330-9614 for more information.

We want your work to be showcased the best way possible so please consider the following guidelines as you prepare for your exhibit. While sales are important, our goal is to emulate a gallery venue rather than a retail venue. Consider this while choosing and showcasing your work.

Choosing work to display

Overcrowding or under-representing your work may result in an unflattering or unprofessional looking exhibit. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to consider both the spatial parameters of the facility and the size of your work in determining which pieces of art should be displayed at the Arts Warehouse. You may find it helpful to bring more work than the space can accommodate so that you can “edit” your work (swap, change groupings, add more or fewer pieces to the exhibit, etc.). Two design principles that can help you grow as an artist and make the exhibit stronger: less is more, and continuity (for example: same kind of frames, similar subject matter, etc.) is best.

Please have all pieces wired and ready for hanging (no sawtooth hangers). Photographs should be matted, framed, and wired for hanging. Canvases can be framed or unframed but must be wired and ready for hanging.

Please bring along appropriate non-wall mounting materials to display the work in or on our display system (example: dish holder). For pedestals please bring adhesive.

Leave 10 inches or more of wall space in between each work. Hang work so that the middle of each piece is around average eye-level, 57 inches. If hanging multiple pieces of varying sizes, each piece should be installed with the 57 inch middle rule kept in mind (see diagram). Keep in mind: this may mean that the tops of the artworks may be at varying heights.

Please note: Please bring any tools you need to properly install the work yourself in our facility (tape measure, levels, etc.) We have limited tools.
