CALL FOR ARTIST PROPOSALS: 2024 EXHIBITION SCHEDULE

Through exhibits and programs, we present a welcoming and diverse experience that encourages questioning, creativity, and critical thinking. The WAC has two gallery spaces which each host one exhibit per month. The WAC Exhibit Committee is seeking proposals for solo and group exhibitions for 2024 that focus on MN subjects, agriculture, nature, and community.
$150 exhibit fee for exhibiting artists, non-profit and community groups are exempt from the fee. WAC provides the reception and marketing for your event. Please do not let this fee stop you from applying; we may have sponsorship available to those wishing for assistance. There is no fee to apply.
We have also updated our fee for gallery sales; WAC asks for 30% commission. Please let us know how much you would like to receive for your artwork and we will add our fee on top of that. [i.e.: you would like $100 for a framed photograph – WAC will list it at $130]
