Gunnison Arts Center Gallery Exhibition Proposal Guidelines

The Galleries
The two galleries of the Gunnison Arts Center (GAC) are located in the historical portion of the center. The Main Gallery is located on the main level right off Hwy 50. The Upper Gallery is smaller in size and is located on the second story of the GAC. Exhibits rotate out on a monthly basis. The Gallery Openings are every month, held on the First Friday of the month. This is in coordination with Gunnison’s First Friday ArtWalk and Music Events. During art openings, artist(s) are responsible for supplying appetizers in the galleries. There is a rental fee for the galleries (see below) should your show be accepted. Solo, group, and traveling exhibitions are all welcome to apply. Local artists and visiting artists are all welcome to apply.
