The Art League seeks artists who have a strong, cohesive, and exciting body of work expressing an aesthetic concept for our prestigious solo artist exhibitions. Our aim, whether we exhibit experimental or traditional works, is to adhere to the highest standards of quality. While we seek beautifully executed work, we also value work that is innovative, artwork that presents the artist’s unique voice and engages the viewer intellectually, emotionally, as well as visually.
Jurying for 2018 solo exhibits took place on October 17, 2016. This year's jurors were Phil Hutinet, publisher and writer of East City Art, and Emma McAlary, local editorial, brand and lifestyle photographer whose works have been featured in Washington Post, Refinery 29 and Contrario Collective to name a few.
The accepted artists are:
• Artist must be a current exhibiting artist member of The Art League.
• Artist cannot have had a solo exhibit at The Art League within the last five years.
• If an artist is selected for a 2019 solo show, no more than 20% of the works displayed in the final exhibit can have been shown within 50 miles of The Art League gallery.
Applications are reviewed two years ahead of time. Jurying for 2019 solo exhibits will take place in fall of 2017. There are two steps to jurying: applicants must first submit images of five works, a proposal, artist statement, and artist résumé online by September 2017. Second, all applicants must drop off their works a weekend in October for in-person review and final decisions that following Monday. Gallery staff will take notes on the discussion and all applicants will ultimately receive letters with the juror's feedback, whether they are accepted or not (the time it takes to receive this feedback will vary based on the number of entries).
Solo Jurying Information Sessions will explain the application, submission, jurying and exhibition processes for a solo show at The Art League gallery. Any artist interested in submitting a proposal for a 2019 solo show should attend one of the five informational meetings, to be schedule begining in the Spring of 2017.
