Flagstaff Arts Council calls for art for the Jewel Gallery

The Flagstaff Arts Council is now accepting applications for art exhibitions in the Jewel Gallery of the Coconino Center for the Arts. Anyone with an exhibition concept 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 Jewel Gallery is a small, 270 square foot rectangular exhibition space in the Coconino Center for the Arts. 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. The Jewel Gallery has also successfully hosted small group shows, where each artist is exhibiting a small body of work. Individuals or organizations may apply to guest curate an exhibition.
