Application Deadline: March 14th, 2019

Apply to show your local art at Common Ground Food Cooperative! We are looking for many local artists to feature in our gallery. Our Art Gallery is located in our highly utilized Flatlander Classroom. This multi-use Classroom is ideal for integrating the arts into the urban environment and creating partnerships among artists, the community, and the Co-op. Selected artists will be invited to install alongside another local artist for two months (approximately 8 weeks). Each selected artist will be allotted locked case in the gallery that measures 8’ long x 44’’ high x 4’’ wide.

We always welcome artists of all ages to apply. Collaborative groups, student groups, art classes, and kids are also encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to themes related to vibrant community & culture, biodiversity & ecology, food system & farmers, and inclusive messages to share with others. 

Common Ground will provide selected artists with:
1. Approximately Two months of Art Gallery space with locked gallery space alongside another local artist.
2. Designed and printed postcards for distribution by the artist.
3. Promotion of artist through various media sources (including but not limited to Facebook, Common Ground Monthly Newsletter, our website, print materials, etc).
4. Art Gallery Reception, with food and drink, hosted to celebrate the two featured artists installed. 

If selected, artists will be responsible for:
*Timely installation and labeling of work
*Communication with the Outreach Coordinator
*Completing Art Gallery Application either online or submitted in person.
*Although the artwork is secured in a locked and protective case, Common Ground Food Co-op is not responsible for any damage or stolen artwork.
*To maintain our safe, welcoming environment we require that works are non-discriminatory and non-graphic/explicit in content, and must be appropriate for all ages. Selection is at the Co-op's discretion and will be decided with an artist jury.
