About the Call
Central Gallery is open to the public during normal library hours and provides artists with an exceptional opportunity for exposure. Artists working at all levels of their career are invited to submit work for consideration.
Artists residing in Arizona, 18 years or older, who are not currently represented by a gallery, may submit work for consideration. Submissions must be original works of art completed by the artist within the last two years. Works previously exhibited in Phoenix Public Library galleries and artists who have had a solo exhibition in @Central Gallery in the past two years are not eligible for consideration.
Artists may submit work in any media; however, artists may be asked to provide pedestals or other display materials required for three-dimensional artwork or artwork that requires special installation. Artists selected for exhibition will be responsible for delivery and retrieval of their artwork and must assist with installation. The artist will also be responsible for framing and any costs incurred to ensure that the artwork is exhibition ready.
All hanging artwork must be suspended from a rail using picture wire. Average sized, framed pieces or canvases should be wire-backed; pieces that are large or deep tend to lean out from the wall, but will hang better with either eyehooks or d-rings installed near the top. We can discuss additional strategies to ensure your work hangs properly. A gallery floor plan with measurements is available upon request.
