Call for Proposals! JAHC Gallery Season 51

The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council (JAHC) is now accepting exhibition proposals for the upcoming Gallery Season running October 2024 through September 2025.

The JAHC Gallery Program supports both established and emerging Alaskan artists showcasing new works, while representing the broadest spectrum of visual art media. Individuals, groups, and organizations are invited to apply; preference will be given to applicants currently living in Alaska. Selected artists will display their work for the duration of one month at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (JACC) Gallery with an opening reception during First Friday, or the duration of approximately three months at the Davis Gallery in Centennial Hall, with an opening reception on the First Friday of the artist’s choice.

The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council welcomes original artwork created within the last three years and not previously exhibited in Alaska. Artists who have been awarded a solo exhibition in the JAHC Gallery Program should wait two years after the date of their exhibition to apply again. Artwork should not violate city, state, or federal laws, or endanger viewers. Applicants who propose to exhibit all new works may provide a sample of current work, sketches, drafts, or photographs that best illustrate the proposal.

Exhibition proposals must include the following:

  • Your contact information
  • Artist statement & bio
  • Artist resume
  • Exhibit proposal
  • Five high-quality images of your work with descriptions (including title, medium, year completed, dimensions, etc.)
  • Any interest in offering an educational component such as a workshop, demonstration, or lecture

An application fee of $40 will be charged to applicants and will be applied to a year-long JAHC membership. If you are already a member in good standing, your application fee will be waived. Applicants who may be experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to inquire about a scholarship.

Submit a proposal online using this application form: To request a paper application, please contact the JAHC Gallery Manager.

The deadline to submit proposals is May 1, 2024 by 11:59 pm Alaska Standard Time. All proposals will be reviewed and selected by the JAHC Board Gallery Committee, artists will be notified of decisions, and the 2024-25 Gallery Season will be announced at the end of June 2024. The JAHC Board Gallery Committee includes members of the JAHC Board of Trustees, the JAHC Gallery Manager, and community liaisons who may be local artists, educators, arts and nonprofit affiliates, gallery or museum professionals, or cultural advocates.

The JAHC encourages artists to consider applying for an Individual Artist Grant to support their efforts in producing works and preparing for an exhibition. This program is intended to assist experienced artists of exceptional talent to produce original works of art or career advancement, and artists in any creative discipline may apply.
