Artist + Exhibition Submissions

OPEN CALLS

The Brenau University Galleries encourages submissions from individuals or institutions wishing to propose an exhibition in one of its campus galleries. The Curatorial Department reviews proposals every quarter, and although we make every effort to respond promptly, it may take some time before you receive a response.

Brenau University Galleries invites all artists regardless of race, gender, gender identity, age, neurodivergence, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or socio-economic status to apply to be juried into its many group shows. Three of its galleries, the Castelli Gallery, the Presidents Gallery, and Sellars Gallery are dedicated to exhibiting the works of local, regional, national, and international artists, while its other two gallery spaces and facilities are dedicated to exhibiting the works of master artists in its extensive and impressive permanent collection.
