Submissions: General Information
The Modella Gallery reviews submissions for artists and proposals from curators on an ongoing basis. Artwork may be of any medium or discipline, including 2D, 3D, video, performance or other undefined types of art or inter-disciplinary work.
The Modella Gallery presents mostly group exhibitions and guest curators, with a focus on bringing high caliber, content-driven arts and educational programming to Downtown Stillwater.
As a non-profit art space, Modella Gallery does not represent artists. Sales take place from our exhibitions. Modella Gallery does not purchase artwork nor house a permanent collection.
Due to our limited time and small staff, Modella Gallery does not accept requests for on-site portfolio reviews. Please note, currently our response time to submissions may take up to three months or longer. Submissions that are not returned within three months may be kept on file for up to two years for further consideration. Acceptance of submission materials does not guarantee inclusion in any particular exhibition. Work submitted and held on file may be chosen for an exhibition planned for the same year, the following year or later. We ask that artists please keep us informed about their work and activities after an initial submission.
Submissions from Artists & Proposals from Curators should include:
Images for visual art (on CD, DVD, catalog and/or prints – NO slides, please)
Film, Video, Sound, Multimedia (on CD, DVD or web URL)
Curatorial proposals should include a curator's statement
Selected reviews & publications (when applicable)
Self-addressed, stamped envelope for return of materials
Email and website submissions are accepted, however we may request additional physical materials be sent.
Mail Submissions To:
Modella Gallery Attn: Submissions PO Box 2591 Stillwater, OK 74076
Email inquiries may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submitted work must be signed and ready for display / hanging (with wire and/or D rings for two dimensional works). Works not ready for exhibition will not be displayed.
There is no formal size restriction on works. However, although the Modella Gallery space is large, the space is not infinite and there may be limitations on the amount of large scale pieces the gallery can accommodate. This may impact the decision as to which works to include.
