The submission period is now closed, and the winners will be announced later in the spring. Our annual open call will re-open for submissions in January 2016.

Below is information about the 2015/2016 open call for reference. Please note that the guidelines chance year to year.


Deadline: March 25, 2015 at midnight

Emerging artists wishing to present new ideas and projects in the context of a gallery space and emerging independent curators committed to developing their professional practice are invited to submit exhibition proposals for the 2015/2016 season. Please look carefully at the application packages below, as the rules have changed this year.

All artists interested in applying for solo or collaborative exhibitions must have an up to date and filled out profile on our online registry. It is also suggested that 50% of artists in all curatorial proposals have up to date and filled out profiles on the registry. NURTUREart’s Online Registry is free and open to everyone.

Start your profile on the registry

You will need to submit all your materials via an online form, through the link below. All material submitted MUST be in the formats described in the application package. Before embarking on the submission form, please make sure all of your materials are in order and ready to upload. Do not try to spruce up your proposal by submitting a Powerpoint, a slideshow, Flash animation or anything else – it just takes us longer to process. Email applications will not be accepted.

To apply, please download the application packages first, with full instructions and guidelines, then follow the link below. A floorplan with images of NURTUREart Gallery is also provided:
