Submission Guidelines for 2017-18 Exhibition Season

Clifton Cultural Arts Center (CCAC) seeks work from emerging and established artists in a variety of media for its upcoming 2017-18 Exhibition Season. CCAC’s mission is to strengthen the critical link between participation in the cultural arts and successful, healthy children, adults and communities. CCAC has several different spaces artists may utilize for installations and exhibitions. We are primarily seeking proposals for the Grand Lobby, our Herrick Gallery, and the Lower Lobby.

CCAC is looking for exhibit proposals that will bring compelling work for installations of one to two months. CCAC also has a commitment to community-based art involving collaborations between artists and the Uptown neighborhoods of Cincinnati in which the Center is located. Submissions are open to artists in all geographic locations. Proposals may be submitted for solo, group or curated exhibitions.

To be considered for an exhibit, please submit a proposal (including suggested title and description), and up to 10 images of your work in jpeg format, minimum 300 dpi. Provide a separate sheet listing the images, medium, dimensions, title, date and suggested sale price. Also provide a short artist’s bio with your work.

Please submit by April 1, 2017 for consideration of your work for the upcoming season, beginning August 18. Our Exhibitions Advisory Committee will review all submissions at that time and notify you within one month.

We are no longer accepting submissions for our 2017-2018 Exhibitions Season. We will be accepting submissions for our 2018-2019 Exhibitions Season in the spring of 2018. Thank you for your continued support.
