IA&A at Hillyer (formerly Hillyer Art Space) is a program of International Arts & Artists (IA&A), a nonprofit arts service organization dedicated to promoting cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts internationally. IA&A fulfills its mission by providing programs and services to artists, arts institutions, cultural organizations, and the public. Hillyer supports IA&A's mission through a series of exhibitions and public programs that feature local, regional, and international artists. Hillyer's exhibition series focuses on under-represented artists, both emerging and established, that have not had a major solo exhibition within the last three years. 

This is an open call for proposals for solo exhibitions for our 2019/2020 season.

Deadline for entry is September 10, 2018.
Notification will be sent to all applicants by December 20, 2018.


About: IA&A at Hillyer (formerly Hillyer Art Space) is a program of International Arts & Artists, a non-profit arts service organization dedicated to increasing cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts. We present monthly exhibitions and each accepted artist is awarded an exhibition in one of our three gallery rooms. Accepted artists also benefit from our Artist Advisory Program, where our highly qualified Artist Advisory Committee works individually with each artist to help them prepare their exhibitions and establish themselves in the DC-arts community.


Qualifications: Hillyer focuses on under represented artists. We accept proposals from regional artists that live within 150 miles of Washington, DC and have not had a solo exhibition in the last three years in a professional gallery or art space. We also accept work from international artists that are both living and working internationally. Please note that Hillyer does not have funding to pay for artwork shipping or artist travel.

Selection: All proposals that meet the gallery's qualifications are reviewed and selected by our Artist Advisory Committee, which is chaired by Hillyer's Director.
