Artist Submission Guidelines

Background:  SCA Contemporary Art is dedicated to facilitating a space for experimental, innovative and contemporary art.  The alternative gallery space, a newly renovated warehouse by artist/designer Sheri Crider, encompasses 17ft. ceilings and a 6,000 sq. ft. exhibition area.  Presenting exhibitions by emerging and established, local, national and international artists working with large scale sculpture, painting, print, drawing, photography, installation, sound and video art.

Art submissions: We urge artists to follow the procedure procedure of filling out both the Submission Checklist and Form in order for us to review materials in a timely way.  Before submitting, please read our mission statement and take a look at some of our recent exhibitions on our website, or visit the gallery to understand our general goals and focus.

New Submissions:  Artists may submit their work for possible inclusion in exhibitions and/ or SCA’s Image Library.  To submit work, complete the two-page Artist Submission Form, and mail with your materials with a review & submission fee of $25.  Please make a check payable to SCA.  SCA Contemporary Art does not accept unsolicited artist submissions by email.

General slide reviews are held every month, and artists may expect a response by mail within 12 weeks of your submission.  (Please indicate if you prefer an email response.)

Any artist submission will automatically be considered for inclusion in our Image Library.  SCA Contemporary Art staff draws on the Image Library when curating group exhibitions and will contact artists if a studio visit is requested.

Updating an existing Image Library file:  If your work is selected for inclusion in the Image Library, your materials will be held on file for a period of one year, at which time we will contact you to request an update on your work.  Update and/ or removal of an artists file by the artist is permitted at any time.  Please notify SCA of any address or phone number changes.

Other submission opportunities/open calls: Please check out our website (www.scacontemporary.com) for deadline information and details on exhibitions.
