Exhibition Proposals

CALL FOR PROPOSALS :: NEXT DEADLINE: 27 NOVEMBER 2017

Are you interested in exhibiting with Lismore Regional Gallery?

The gallery will open in its new building at the Lismore Quadrangle in late 2017. The first floor will showcase curated exhibitions, touring exhibitions and a dedicated gallery for the permanent collection. We will balance our program in these spaces across the year so that it reflects the diverse interests and voices of people from our region and beyond.

The prominently located downstairs gallery will prioritise local early career artists in a
program of about eight exhibitions per year. The gallery is 9.8m x 3.5m x 3.4m (h) (download floor plan here) and has gallery lighting and hanging tracks. Artists will receive a fee of $250 per show, and be expected to help with installation/de-installation. With a large floor to ceiling window, the gallery space will be highly visible to people passing by and those engaging in activities in the Lismore Quadrangle.

Exhibition proposals can be submitted anytime throughout the year and selected by a panel.
