2018 Call for Artwork


The Hartnett Gallery at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York is now accepting proposals from individual artists and groups interested in exhibiting their work during the 2018-2019 academic year. The Hartnett Gallery is committed to diversity and inclusivity and welcomes proposals from artists based in the United States working in any medium or format. Proposals from University of Rochester alumni artists will be accepted for a show during Meliora Weekend.

Established in 1972, this unique triangular gallery is located in one of the main buildings of the university, Wilson Commons, which was designed by the gallery of renowned architect I.M. Pei. The gallery has a rich exhibition history that includes artists beginning their artistic careers as well as artists maintaining international recognition.

Proposals should include: 1) a Curriculum Vitae, 2) an Artist’s Statement, 3) a Project Description, specifying spatial and technical needs, 4) 8-10 representative Digital Images (for time-based work, you must provide links to videos posted online) and 5) an Image List (title, date, dimensions, medium).

Please separate all materials into individual PDFs and submit them through our Google form link. If you do not have a Google account or cannot submit your artwork through the form, please email proposals to hartnett@ur.rochester.edu with the subject line “Hartnett submissions 2018/19.” The general submission deadline is March 31, 2018. The submission deadline for alumni has been extended to April 15, 2018.
