The Full Story
Prospectus for the 2023/2024 Exhibition Season
Coker University uses the Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery to broaden our student's exposure to artists with regional, national, and international reputations. Interest in our exhibition program extends beyond the university community and we encourage public participation in all exhibitions and artists’ presentations. We have shown artists from France, Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, and all regions within the United States. Works exhibited in our gallery are for sale; however, we do not focus on sales and sales are not common. Coker's exhibition review committee selects thought provoking art that challenges and inspires. With this in mind, our review committee looks for innovative works of art by artists who desire exposure in an academic setting.
Next Review Deadline
Postmarked no later than October 31, 2022 for the 2023/2024-exhibition season.
What You Send
Upload 10-15 jpg images, image list, & CV to Dropbox.com & share folder with firstname.lastname@example.org or send a CD with same to Art Gallery, Coker University Art Dept., 300 E. College Ave., Hartsville, SC 29550 (SASE if you want it returned). You may send more than fifteen images, but keep in mind that only fifteen images are projected.
Reviews, web pages, and catalogues are welcome supplementary information, but are not required or expected. If you want notification, but not the return of your materials, please include an email address.
Digital files are viewed with a video projector and should hold up to close examination. Jpg files created from focused images with a physical size of at least 1200 pixels wide, at 72 dpi should hold up well on our projector: include detail images where you deem appropriate.
Do not send files as part of a viewing program (such as PowerPoint). We want jpg files that we can drag and drop into our own picture-viewing program.
We accept works in all media; however, our hardware is limited to two computers (Macs) and one digital projector for use with computer or DVD projection. If you have your own equipment, we have wi-fi and have an adjustable ceiling hanger for video projectors/players.
$300.00 towards shipping (total)
$200.00 for artists who give a physical gallery talk/presentation during their show OR $100.00 for artists who give a Virtual gallery talk.
Color poster (at our cost): the color posters are a small run that we have printed (professional full color digital printer) for display around campus and we set aside a few of these for the artist’s use, at no charge. The artist can arrange for a larger run, from our printer, if willing to assume cost of extra posters.
