Are you an artist? | Opportunities to exhibit your workAnn Arbor Art Center








We hold two annual juried exhibitions: The Annual Art Now Series, and All Media. Artists nationwide can submit their original work. Please see the calendar below for dates, further details and to download the prospectus.

Exhibitions are planned at least a year in advance to give selected artists time to develop new work and collaborate with the exhibition staff and other artists.

Please make sure you are part of our artist mailing list as that is our primary source to communicate calls for entries for these juried exhibitions as well as other opportunities that come up at the Art Center.

Typically one-person exhibitions are developed by invitation only from the Art Center exhibition staff.  However, we welcome and actively solicit group proposals with two to five artists in mind. You are welcome to submit an exhibition proposal to our Gallery Director.

Proposals must include:

  1. JPEG images, 300 DPI, sized to no larger than 10 inches as longest dimension - Include an index print with thumbnail images labeled with title, dimensions, medium and price for each piece.
  2. CV
  3. Artist Statement
  4. Exhibition proposal (one page or less)

For additional information and questions, call 734.926.4130 and ask for our Gallery Director.
