Exhibition Proposals

The Art Associates Gallery provides an exhibition space for emerging and professional artists. Artists working in all media including video, film, and installation are encouraged to apply. Proposals are accepted year round but are collected for review in January.

A panel composed of representatives from Art Associates of Lake Charles, Inc., Arts and Humanities Council of SWLA, McNeese State University Visual Arts Department, and City of Lake Charles will jury submissions from arts organizations, individual artists, and humanists free of charge.  

Exhibitions should be appropriate to the size and mission of the gallery. The Art Associates reserves the right to refuse entries that are deemed inappropriate.

Gallery space is free of charge, provided the individual artist or organization furnish delivery and retrieval of work. A $100 deposit will be required of all artists/organizations installing their own show and held until the gallery is restored to its original condition and upon the approval of the Art Associates Gallery committee. The deposit will be waived for exhibitions installed by the Art Associates Gallery committee.

Artists and organizations are responsible for selling work housed in the Art Associates Gallery and receive 100% profit of all sales. Insuring work on display in the gallery is the responsibility of the artist or organization.
