Call for Proposals for the Main and Step-Up Gallery, Solo & Group Exhibitions in 2020


Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is now accepting proposals for solo and group exhibitions for January–December, 2020. Exhibits in the Main Gallery will generally run for a 4-week period but may be longer. Exhibits in the Step Up Gallery, which is reserved for members of Viewpoint only (you must be a current member to submit a proposal), will also run for approximately four weeks. Exhibits run concurrently in both galleries, with new exhibits opening during the second week of each month.

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is a non-profit arts organization offering a robust exhibit program in its two J Street galleries (Main Gallery and Step Up Gallery), as well as an expanding educational outreach program, member services including Print and Portfolio nights, lectures, workshops and much more. Viewpoint is also the presenter of the newly established Photography Month Sacramento.

All proposals must be made using EntryThingy online submissions. The link can be found on the Viewpoint website under Exhibits/Call for Entries or by clicking HERE.

Submissions must be in digital format. The Curatorial Committee will not accept slides, prints, or other formats during its initial review, but may request samples of such work during the selection process.

Submission must include a representative selection of 15 – 25 images from a finished, cohesive body of work, as well as a short bio and resume (which can be uploaded to EntryThingy). Images must be sized to EntryThingy specifications and should not exceed 2 MB. For instance, an image sized 1200 pixels by 1600 pixels saved as a medium quality jpeg.

If selected for an exhibit, exhibitors must be prepared to show a minimum of 20 or more images from their submitted body of work. The final number will be determined by the Viewpoint Curatorial Committee based on images sizes and available wall space.

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center will accept no more than two exhibit proposals by any one artist. Please differentiate proposals by exhibit title.
