SOIL gallery: Call for proposals

Call for Show Proposals
SOIL is now accepting proposals for group shows (three or more artists).

Next review deadline: February 14, 5pm

Proposals must be received on or before Saturday, February 14 at 5pm to be considered during this coming season. We accept submissions for curated shows on a continual basis. Proposals must be of work not shown previously in Seattle.

For more information please visit:



Project Description: Describe in a paragraph the themes and content of the show. It is imperative your description is clear and that it leaves us with a strong impression of what to expect from the exhibition you propose. Include project title, how many pieces in the show, media, and other important details on your plans for the exhibition. We are interested in compelling ideas, concisely stated.

Application: Fill out the PDF application, including the Work Description List.

It is available to download and print here:

Work Sample: Enclose up to 15 digital images on a CD, including samples of work by all participating artists to provide a sense of the proposed show. Digital image files should be saved on the CD as the artists' last name and numbered corresponding to the Work Description List, such as Jones_01.jpg, Jones_02.jpg, Smith_03.jpg. Size images at 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. Do not embed images into PDF files. For video samples we will accept DVD and CD-ROM formats. Images are crucial to our understanding of your proposal. Your Project Description should function as the backbone that connects your image samples together.

Work Description List: List details of the work corresponding with their number, including artist’s name, title, dimensions of work, materials used and date executed for each piece.

Support Materials: We recommend but do not require enclosing a resume and one page or less artist statement from each participating artist. Please do not include reviews, publications, or other additional items.

SASE: Your materials will not be returned unless indicated on the application and accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope (with adequate stamps, not metered postage).

Proposals are accepted in person or by mail. Drop-off submissions will be accepted during gallery hours, Wednesday – Saturday, 12-5 pm.
