Interested in applying to be part of Art in the Halls? The MSV invites emerging to mid-career artists to apply.
What you will need:
The MSV invites artists of any medium to submit their work, but please note the restrictions of the exhibition space. The Art in the Halls program is mounted in the Glaize and Lewis halls on the first floor of the MSV building. Groups or artists who wish to be considered should complete the application form. Please note that MSV will not accept pieces that are older than three years or have been shown regionally within the last year. Have questions about whether your artwork is a good fit for Art in the Halls? Contact Christy Broy: email@example.com , (540)662-1473, ext 244.
How it works:
Submissions are reviewed from the digital images provided in the application and exhibition selections are determined by committee. Submissions are also evaluated on the exhibition description and artist’s statement. This information helps the committee understand the level of artistic development and commitment of the submitting artist/group. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Work submitted for the exhibition must be of the same quality, medium, and style as the work submitted in the proposal. Artists must be the original creators of the work they are submitting.
The MSV will do its best to respond to your submission, but please note that we receive a large number of inquiries. An MSV representative will contact you should additional materials be requested for further consideration.
Artists who are accepted will have a three-year interval before another solo proposal will be considered. Artists are strongly encouraged to keep pricing consistent with websites and other sale sites.
- The committee’s decisions are final.
- Exhibits typically run for two to three months with either an opening or closing reception.
- The MSV currently organizes two Art in the Halls exhibitions per calendar year, each composed of two or more artists. Your exhibition submission will be considered as part of this overall structure and may be selected as a solo exhibition (one hall) or as part of a joint exhibition (shared hall).
- Exhibitions are planned several months to a year or more in advance. Please keep this in mind when submitting your proposal.
Selected artists will receive an Artist Welcome Packet that contains all pertinent exhibition paperwork that must be completed by the designated deadlines. By signing the Art in the Halls Agreement, the artist agrees to meet all deadlines for deliverables and to maintain open communication with the MSV as the exhibition is planned and organized.
Commission & Payment:
The MSV retains a commission of 40% on sales made through the Art in the Halls program.
