We will choose artists to premier in 6-week solo exhibitions occurring between November 2017 and December 2018.
Women & Their Work seeks artists who create inventive, high-caliber contemporary art that breaks new ground or proposes innovative approaches to form and content. Selections are based on an evaluation of the work you submit; we look for a strong, consistent aesthetic vision. We encourage selected artists to create new work; no work that has previously been exhibited in Austin will be accepted for exhibition. The work in the application should demonstrate that you are capable in vision and scope of creating a powerful solo exhibition that commands the 1,700 square foot gallery.

We will only be able to view three minutes of each video, so please queue accordingly. Please select your images/videos with great care as they are the basis of the selection process and are extremely important.
2) Artist’s Statement
Include a one-page statement describing your work, your aesthetic vision, and your plans for a future solo exhibition here.
Upload a current resume. Do not include announcements, catalogs, reviews, or letters; they will not be reviewed.
4) Application Processing Fee
A $25 processing fee is required. This year we are using CaFE, a widely used online application, which should make the uploading process simple and clear for you.
The gallery is approximately 1,700 square feet with 10.5 feet high ceilings, track lighting and seven moveable walls. Projectors and sound equipment are available.
The 2017 - 2018 Solo Exhibition Series jury panel will be comprised of arts professionals from other cities, artists who have had a solo show here in the past, and gallery staff. Every applicant is carefully reviewed, considered and discussed.
You will be notified by email of your application. Please do not seek information on the status of your application prior to the deadline. If you have questions about how to apply online, please ask them anytime via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 512-477-1064.
Women & Their Work will award an honorarium of $1500 to the artists who are selected for our 2017 - 2018 Solo Exhibition Series. Our gallery staff will work with you to help you achieve all aspects of your vision. We will provide a curatorial advisor for the development of your work and commission a writer to write about your work. We will publish this essay in a color catalog featuring images of your exhibition. We will also produce a six minute video of you discussing your work. This video will be featured in the gallery, on Women & Their Work's website, and on YouTube.
You will receive 75% of the sale price of any work sold during your exhibition.
