Call for Artists

The library is seeking submissions of recent work from visual artists in the Chippewa Valley and beyond for exhibition in the 2023–2024 calendar year and later.

All submissions will be evaluated by members of the library’s Visual Arts Committee, which is comprised of artists, art professionals and art enthusiasts from the area. Artists will be notified by email if the proposal is accepted.

To submit work for consideration, send the following:

• Ten to twenty high-definition digital images representing recent work. File names for image files should be in the form lastname_image title. Abbreviate as needed to keep file name to a reasonable, understandable length.
• A corresponding text file listing images by number or title and including the size and materials.
• An artist statement, including a biographical sketch. This must include the artist’s email address.

Important: The library will accept applications submitted as digital images and text files on CD or flash drive. Please remember to write your name on the CD or flash drive in permanent ink. Images of reasonable sizes may be emailed.
