Information for Exhibiting Artists

The Commons Gallery Online Proposal Submission Form

Individual artists or artists working as a group may submit a proposal for a body of work to be exhibited at The Commons Gallery. Selected exhibits will be on display for a 3-month time frame quarterly. Selected exhibits may include work for sale, or work that is not for sale, but the body of work should include new work that has never been exhibited in Ketchikan – including Social Media. The proposed artwork must be able to be displayed within approximately an 8' 6" tall x 26' wide wall space. Selected exhibits must be appropriate for all ages. 

Please note: Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis, however, if you have a specific Quarter that you wish to display your work in, you will need to meet these deadlines, and communicate your preferred timing in your proposal.
