Bunnell Street Art Center's Visual Arts Exhibition Program

Bunnell’s flagship Visual Arts Exhibit program has earned a national profile for over 30 years of innovation and excellence. A new exhibit opens the first Friday of every month with a public reception and artist talk. A community tradition, exhibitions promote education and community engagement about Alaska’s artistic heritage and diversity. Solo exhibits nurture and promote Alaska’s mid-career artists and elevate artistic innovation, craftsmanship, and fiscal sustainability for the arts. 

Exhibiting artists are selected by an advisory committee composed of Bunnell artists, staff, board and community members working with Bunnell’s Artistic Director. Artists are notified by December 31st each year.

Exhibits are open to Alaska artists in all media and formats including solo, group and interdisciplinary arts are welcome. Work need not be for sale. The exhibit application must include a cover letter, artist statement, resume and five images of recent work representing the exhibit intention. There is a $25 application fee. (Needs-based waivers are available). Learn more here.

Learn more and apply at www.callforentry.org  September 15 – October 31.

Additional applicant questions can be directed to Bunnell’s Artistic Director, Asia Freeman: asia@bunnellarts.org
