Overture Center Announces Call for Gallery Applicants for 2017/18 Season
Four exhibition cycles will be selected for each Gallery I, II and III

Madison, Wis. – Overture Center for the Arts is now accepting applications for Gallery I, II, and III for the 2017/18 Season. Applications are being accepted online, and are due Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Guidelines can be found at:

Overture Galleries I, II and III serve as entryways to the Capitol Theater. Gallery I is located on the first floor, Gallery II on the second floor and Gallery III on the third floor. Four exhibition cycles will be selected for each of the three galleries for the annual season. Each exhibit cycle lasts approximately three months. Applicants are encouraged to view the spaces prior to submitting an application. Artists may apply individually or as a group, and we also encourage curatorial proposals.

Individual applicants who are accepted will be curated into a two-person or group exhibition. Group applicants and curatorial proposals must include artwork by a minimum of two artists, the majority of whom reside in Dane County. Group and curated shows must also be organized with a strong conceptual and visual theme. Overture can give administrative support and guidance to individuals or groups who are interested in curating a show or organizing a group show.  Preference is given to artists who have not shown work in the Overture Galleries in the past two years. Artists who have recently exhibited in a large group show at Overture Galleries may re-apply as an individual or as a member of another group.

The Overture Gallery staff aims to support artists and organizations in the application and exhibition process with a simple application and no financial fee to apply.

Overture Galleries I, II and III selections are made by a committee of Dane County artists and art professionals. Overture aims to exhibit a full range of the cultural diversity of Dane County.
