BJC Exhibition Proposal
PROPOSAL DEADLINE: OCTOBER 20TH, 2023
Entry fee: $30
The Baltimore Jewelry Center is currently seeking exhibition proposals for our 2024/25 gallery schedule. Proposals are not limited to jewelry and might include thematic exhibitions or exhibitions showcasing an artist or group of artists. We are looking for exhibitions that explore the gallery setting in an unexpected way, seek to place jewelry and craft within a larger context, and expand connections in our community at large. Our goal is to demonstrate unique curatorial viewpoints, expose our audience to fresh and emerging makers and ideas, and present art jewelry and metalsmithing in a broader art context. We are especially excited to see proposals that create a diverse and inclusive gallery space in order to elevate underrepresented voices. Proposals should consider the size and dimensions of the gallery space.
Gallery Floor Plan available here
Complete proposals will be reviewed and selected for exhibition by our Exhibitions Committee.
Exhibition proposals that are selected will receive a $300.00 curatorial stipend.
The Baltimore Jewelry Center is a 501c3 educational nonprofit building a vibrant creative community for the study and practice of metalworking for new and established artists. We offer classes, workshops, and studio space rental to anyone with an interest in contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing. In addition to our education program, the Baltimore Jewelry Center helps metal and jewelry artists grow sustainable business practices by offering professional development, sales opportunities, and a promotional platform.
Our exhibitions program is a robust component of the Baltimore Jewelry Center and supplements the education we provide to our students and community. Through exhibitions that showcase national and international artists in the art jewelry and metals field we offer students an up close and personal view of the innovations and freshness happening in the field at large.
