Submission Procedure for Artists


Any artist wishing to exhibit within the Washington Gallery will need to follow our submission procedure. This involves submitting a proposal to the gallery detailing:


  • Your intentions as an artist (i.e. an artist statement)
  • A statement of your proposed exhibition/work
  • Up to 8 good quality images of work (on a CD or flash drive/USB stick in JPEG format)
  • Your artist CV
  • Any information on funding/intentions of gaining funding of your work/exhibition (if applicable)


Images should be of the work you wish to exhibit. If not, please explain how this work relates to the proposed exhibition.


We accept work in all media including 3D, photographic and print.


Proposals will be kept on file for one year for consideration. Please provide an email address so we can send receipt of receiving your proposal – receipts will not be sent via post.


The annual deadlines for submission are: 1st March & 31st October


Our exhibitions panel meet twice a year, after the deadline for submissions closes. If you have been successful, you will hear from the gallery within 4 weeks of the deadline date to discuss details of your exhibition.


We occasionally miss proposals sent in by email due to the filtration of ‘junk mail’ – to ensure that your proposal gets to us, please send this via post to:

If sending a flash drive/USB stick containing images that you want returned, please include a stamped addressed envelope.
