The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery seeks to be an engaging, dynamic showcase for local art. The Gallery brings art to the community as well as the community to art. In keeping with this spirit, the Gallery accepts theme proposal ideas for upcoming exhibits, allowing Santa Feans a hands-on role in developing exciting exhibits. Exhibits are currently being planned for summer 2019 and beyond. Theme ideas are accepted throughout the year.
Community Gallery exhibits feature approximately 30 artists each. The Gallery does not present one-person or small group exhibits. All artists are selected through an open call to artists and juried by a selection panel. Theme proposals are evaluated based on five criteria, with the most successful proposals addressing three to five factors.
One goal of the gallery is to offer the broadest inclusion for all artists and involve a large portion of the local population by offering more than the display of artwork. Exhibitions feature programs and events that invite a varied and diverse audience. Interested parties are encouraged to submit their theme ideas using the Gallery Exhibit Proposal Form.
