Open Call

Artists working in any medium are invited to submit an application for exhibition at the Ben Robertson Community Center Fine Art Gallery. This opportunity is open to any artist, group of artists, or art teachers seeking to organize a show. Artists should plan on exhibiting 20-30 artworks, depending on size. Works in all disciplines will be considered. However, due to limitations of the exhibition space, the exhibit will primarily feature 2-dimensional works. 3-dimensional works may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Only original works of art are eligible. Pieces that have been shown in previous KACC shows are not eligible for entry.

 

Artists are responsible for delivery, installation, and removal of artwork for exhibitions. Opening receptions are sponsored by the KACC and Kennesaw Parks and Recreation; refreshments are the responsibility of the artist. Sales will be handled by the artist.

 

Due Date for Submissions

Applications may be submitted at any time and will be held for the next review. Deadlines for submissions are January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15. You will be notified after your work has been reviewed.

 

The Review Committee meets quarterly to review applications. This committee is comprised of visual art professionals, Kennesaw citizens, City staff, and KACC Commissioners. Applications are reviewed and rated on artistic quality and consistency of the artwork.
