2020–2021 Member Exhibitions

The Members Committee selects artists for exhibitions through an open call.  The Members Committee is currently accepting proposals for exhibitions in the Community Galleries, the Feature Gallery at Mondo, and The Gallery at the Summit Public Library.

Deadline extended: May 18

Members seeking to exhibit their works in any medium may submit a proposal for a solo or group exhibition. All proposals received by Monday, May 18, will be considered for the 2020-21 exhibition season, running from September 2020–August 2021.

There is no entry fee and the exhibit proposer will be responsible for the collection and dispersal of artworks within allocated time frames, the cost of printing show cards, and food and beverage at the opening, if applicable. For exhibitions in the Wilf Family Community Galleries, Art Center staff will assist in hanging the artwork, and coordinate publicity for the exhibition. These exhibition spaces include a gallery with 84 linear feet and one with 43 linear feet.  2D works must be ready to hang with appropriate wire or fixtures for hanging. Proposed exhibitions can be one-person, two-person, or group shows and all works must be family-friendly and appropriate for a general audience. Any questions can be sent to Melanie Cohn at mcohn@artcenternj.org with “ATTN Members Committee” in the subject line. All applicants will be notified by June 30 of the Members Committee’s selections.

To submit a proposal, send:

  • 10 images (jpg or pdf) representative of the work to be shown with an identifying list that includes the artist name, title, year created, size, and media of each artwork.
  • Contact information, including name, email, and phone number of person proposing the exhibition.
  • A description of the exhibition, including exhibition title, names of participating artist(s), and the concepts or themes that will be explored.
  • A short bio for each participating artist.

Only one proposal is required for group exhibitions. Send the complete proposal via email to Melanie Cohn at mcohn@artcenternj.org with “Proposal for Members Committee” in the subject line. Incomplete proposals will not be considered.
