Alaska artists invited to apply for upcoming Anchorage Museum exhibitions
‘All Alaska Juried’ and solo exhibition deadline is July 1
The Anchorage Museum is accepting submissions until July 1 for “All Alaska Juried XXXV” and project proposals for solo art exhibitions.
“All Alaska Juried” is a popular, biennial juried art exhibition established more than 30 years ago to encourage Alaska artists to create new works. This year’s juror is Portland Art Museum curator Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson. The winner of the Best of Show Award receives a $1,000 prize. “All Alaska Juried XXXV” opens Nov. 7 and is on view through Feb. 1, 2015 at the Anchorage Museum. Afterward the exhibition will tour the state for one year, including to The Bear Gallery in Fairbanks.
The Anchorage Museum’s Patricia B. Wolf Solo Exhibition Series highlights new bodies of work by individual Alaska artists. Once every three years, Alaska artists are invited to submit applications to a selection committee comprised of museum staff and art professionals. These solo art exhibitions will be scheduled starting in 2016.
Interested artists can learn more and apply for both opportunities at callforentry.org.
The Anchorage Museum is grateful to the Alaska State Council on the Arts; National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; Municipality of Anchorage; and Anchorage Museum Foundation’s Alaska Airlines Silver Anniversary Fund for ongoing support of the museum’s important solo exhibition series.
The Anchorage Museum is the largest museum in Alaska and one of the top 10 most visited attractions in the state. The museum’s mission is to share and connect Alaska with the world through art, history, science and Alaska Native culture. Learn more online at anchoragemuseum.org.
