The panel recommends finalists to the GAC Exhibits Committee, where final selections are made.


Submissions are open to artists who reside and create their work in the United States.  The majority of work used for your proposal must have been completed within the last 3 years.  

Artworks may be in any media, providing the GAC exhibition space can accommodate the work. Installation or other work requiring special accommodations must be approved in writing prior to the exhibition.  

The application requires an Artist’s Statement, CV, Images of Artworks, Proposal Statement, and Image List. All submissions are received via and require a submission fee. Incomplete applications or applications which do not follow guidelines are subject to disqualification.  Submission fees are not refundable.

The Georgetown Art Center reserves the right to reject entries that contain any form of hate speech, gratuitous violence, or racism at its sole discretion.

Submitting a proposal is considered confirmation that the artist is the creator and copyright owner of the work.


All submissions must be received before midnight, January 31, 2022.
