The Anchorage Museum’s solo artist exhibition program highlights new bodies of work by individual Alaska artists. Once every three years, Alaska artists are invited to submit images of their work for review by a selection committee. This committee selects artists for upcoming solo exhibitions at the museum. This is a very competitive program: The museum typically receives more than 100 applicants for just a handful of available slots. Once artists have been selected and scheduled for solo exhibitions, the museum produces a full-color brochure for each artist and assists the artist with freight and mailing costs. Solo artist exhibitions are open to Alaska artists only.
The All Alaska Juried Art Exhibition occurs every other year, alternating with Earth, Fire and Fibre, the biennial Alaska juried craft exhibition.
The All Alaska Juried Art Exhibition features new works in all media. Artworks are chosen based on the artist’s skill level and forward-thinking concepts and methods. The exhibition is juried by a well-known museum director, curator, artist or critic from a nationally recognized institution. The exhibition is on view at the Anchorage Museum for three months and then begins a yearlong tour to museums across Alaska. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalog. Prize money is awarded to artists, including a $1,000 best-of-show award. This exhibition is open to Alaska artists only.
Earth, Fire and Fibre features new works in traditional craft materials such as fiber, clay and wood. Artworks are chosen based on the artist’s skill level and forward-thinking concepts and methods. Earth, Fire and Fibre is juried by a well-known museum director, curator, artist or critic from a nationally recognized institution. The exhibition is on view at the Anchorage Museum for three months and then begins a yearlong tour to museums across Alaska. This exhibition is open to Alaska artists only.
Submissions for these exhibitions are only accepted through CallForEntry.org.
