DC Arts Center accepts proposals from artists and curators on a rolling basis. Artists may submit their own work in order to be considered for a solo exhibition or inclusion in a group exhibition. Curators may submit proposals for solo or group exhibitions. If you are a curator interested in submitting an exhibition proposal, please submit your proposal through the curatorial proposal form

Proposals are reviewed by DCAC's Visual Arts Committee on quarterly basis. Once your proposal is received, our gallery manager may reach out to you to schedule a studio visit or meeting with members of the Visual Arts Committee. 

Exhibitions are generally scheduled 6 to 12 months in advance. 

We are open to applications from all artists working seriously in their field and do not discriminate according to politics, race, age, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Images should be submitted as .jpg files. 

Artists wishing to submit samples of video work should provide links to the samples on their website or on a video-sharing site (Vimeo, YouTube etc) in the artwork identification list.
