EXHIBITION DATES: September 8 – September 24, 2018

CALL TO ARTISTS: Fall Gallery Night is an event that occurs once a year during September. It is arguably our most popular opening of year where we anticipate more than 3000 visitors in a single night. Only TAC members with active accounts are eligible for this rare opportunity. Due to a last minute Fall Gallery Night cancellation, we are seeking a TAC artist to fill the gallery. To see if your TAC membership is active, click here. To learn more about TAC or become a member, please click here. All mediums accepted including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art with no size restrictions. The show will occur in Fort Worth Community Arts Center’s 420 square foot gallery. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person. The artist will be chosen by our Exhibition Advisory Panel.
Proposals from Artists need to include:
ABOUT FWCAC: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
SUBMISSION: Work will be viewed from images submitted only through the gallery’s online submission. $25 submission fee for up to 15 pieces. Images must be JPEGs with minimum width/height of 800 pixels, maximum size as 3MB. Make sure the file name corresponds with the title of the work and do not use spaces or special characters (!@$, etc) in the image file names. Video and audio files can be submitted through links. FWCAC reserves the right to reject inaccurately represented work, or incomplete submission.
PRESENTATION: Work must be suitably framed (or sides cleanly finished or painted) and ready for hanging. D-rings should be used for heavy works, wires for works under 5lbs. Drawings, prints, watercolors and pastels on paper must be under Plexiglass.
