Call for Work...

Clark County Call for Exhibition Proposals

Clark County Parks and Recreation will review exhibit proposals from artists residing in Clark County for the exhibition year 2011-12 for the Winchester Cultural Center and Clark County Government Center Rotunda galleries.

To be considered, artists must reside in Clark County and are asked to submit a packet with the following six items: exhibition proposal, artist statement, artist resume, 15 to 20 supporting digital images (no slides or prints), image identification list including title, date, medium and dimensions, and a self-addressed stamped envelope for return proposal packet. Digital images must be saved in jpg format on a CD and range from 72 to 200 dpi with maximum file dimensions of 8-by-10 inches.

All three-dimensional work will be considered for both spaces while two-dimensional pieces can only be showcased at the Winchester Gallery.

The Winchester Cultural Center houses Clark County Parks and Recreation’s only theater and hosts concerts, recitals, fine arts and fitness classes and senior activities throughout the year. Two- and three-dimensional works, along with media-based and installation works, will be considered for this space. The center is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays. The center is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

The Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway near downtown Las Vegas, houses general administrative offices of Clark County government, chambers for the Board of Commissioners, a variety of special purpose spaces and an amphitheater in the courtyard. Only three-dimensional work will be considered for this space. Proposals that require electrical power will not be considered. Large-scale floor works are encouraged, but the selected project may in no way interfere with the day-to-day operation of the building or compromise public safety. The proposed project or work must be able to withstand the wear and tear of being in a public space for seven to eight weeks. A visit by the artist to the space is encouraged before exhibit conception and submission.

Submissions must be received or delivered by 6 p.m. Saturday, April 9.

Please send by mail or hand deliver to the attention of Wendy Kveck at Winchester Cultural Center, 3130 S. McLeod Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89121. Accepted artists will be notified by May 14.

Questions should be directed via e-mail Wendy Kveck at wendyccnv@gmail.com. For additional information, call the Winchester Cultural Center at 455-7340.
