Submissions are accepted twice a year; postmarked or hand delivered on or before April 1st or October 1st.
Any artist or group may submit a proposal for an exhibition at the Harlow Gallery. Members of the Kennebec Valley Art Association are especially encouraged to submit proposals. Proposals are initially ranked by certain criteria and current membership is one of these, followed by being a resident of Maine, or having a strong connection to the state.
Please note that we try to limit solo shows to one per year at the most. Proposals for group shows are encouraged, or themed shows in which other artists are invited to participate. All art forms are welcome, including fine crafts. The Exhibition Committee would love to see some proposals involving contemporary art, performance art, experimental art, cross-disciplinary art and conceptual art.
We generally exhibit the work of contemporary (living) artists. Giclée prints and other reproductions of original work are not eligible for inclusion in any exhibition at the Harlow Gallery. Work should be original, completed within five years of the exhibition you are proposing (except in the case of retrospectives), and should not have been recently exhibited elsewhere in central Maine.
(NOTE: date on this form says it is for the 2011 exhibition season, please ignore, it’ll still work fine. Thanks!)
