Jewel Gallery: Call for Artists


The Flagstaff Arts Council is seeking concepts for art exhibitions in the Jewel Gallery of the Coconino Center for the Arts. Anyone with an exhibition idea can apply, however the Jewel Gallery is a small space (270 sq. ft.) so this opportunity is ideal for solo artist exhibitions. The Arts Council also has availability in the Hidden Light Gallery (204 sq. ft.).

The Center attracts over 30,000 visitors each year; the primary reason for visits to the Center is to view art work in the two galleries. Opening Receptions often attract 200-600 people. Jewel Gallery exhibitions are always aligned chronologically with Main Gallery exhibitions so that the openings are on the same night and audiences are shared.

This opportunity is ideal for an individual artist to show a small body of art work in a solo exhibition.

A volunteer group of artists and arts professionals, the Arts Advisory Council, reviews all proposals and makes recommendations to Arts Council staff. They consider the following criteria below as their primary guide for decisions. However, other factors may contribute to final decisions.

  • Quality of art work images presented (10 points)
  • Quality of exhibition concept (10 points)
  • Appropriateness of exhibition for the Center and northern Arizona (5 points)
  • Ability of the applicant to complete the exhibition successfully (5 points)
  • Budget and projected costs (2 points)
  • Schedule

Deadline to apply online: Thursday, June 29, 2017.

Notification to applicants: no later than August 2, 2017.
