The Brand Library Art Galleries is accepting submissions from artists, curators, and artist groups for exhibitions to be held in 2015 and early 2016.
Opened in 1969, the Brand Library Art Galleries has a long history of supporting artists and sharing thought provoking and engaging works of art with the public. The 3,200 square foot professional exhibition space offers one of the most stunning municipal exhibition venues in Southern California.
Brand Library Art Galleries showcases work in a variety of styles and media by established and emerging artists, with a focus on Southern California-based artists, living artists, and recent work, however curatorial proposals from outside the region will be considered.
Submission deadline is February 28, 2015. Submissions will be reviewed in March, and notifications made by the end of April. The Gallery Director will invite selected artists, curators, or groups for an interview. Selections are made based on the quality of the artwork or proposal, the degree to which the work corresponds to the Brand Library Art Galleries mission, and the desire to present a diverse yet well-balanced exhibition schedule.
Interviews generally take place in the artist’s studio; in some cases interviews will be conducted at Brand Library Art Galleries with artists asked to bring examples of their work to the interview. If selected, individual artists will be curated into small group exhibitions with 2 to 4 other artists. The notification and interview timeline is subject to change at the discretion of Brand Library Art Galleries staff.
Artists, curators, or groups not selected may re-apply in the next submission cycle.
- Individual artists or artist groups who have exhibited at the Brand Library Art Galleries are not eligible for resubmission for four years, however artists who have only exhibited work in the Annual Juried Exhibition are eligible to submit.
- Works previously displayed in the Brand Library Art Galleries are not eligible to be shown again.
- No preferential treatment is given to individual members of the Associates of Brand Library, City of Glendale employees, or art associations that have previously exhibited at Brand Library Art Galleries.
