Bihl Haus Arts produces 6-7 exhibitions every year at the gallery. Two are annual recurring exhibits: On and Off Fred on the third weekend in February and the GO! Arts exhibit in the summer; the remainder are solo or small group shows that feature the work of emerging and established professional artists from San Antonio, South Texas, and throughout the world (to date, international guest artists have come from Cuba, Thailand, Japan, India, Belgium, and New Zealand). Each exhibition is on display for approximately 5 to 8 weeks. In addition, Bihl Haus installs GO! Arts exhibitions twice each year at most participating senior centers and residences plus an offsite selected group show each fall.
Artists and curators may submit exhibition proposals to Bihl Haus Arts throughout the year. We welcome submissions from professional and emerging artists in all mediums (students are not eligible). Selected artists will receive a 5-8 week exhibition at Bihl Haus Arts. Artists are responsible for delivery, shipping, and pick up of their work. Bihl Haus Arts installs and de-installs most exhibits, although complex installation may require the assistance of the artist. Bihl Haus Arts provides invitations, reception, and generates PR with the assistance of the artist. Exhibiting artists are required to attend the exhibition opening and to participate in an artist talk, demonstration, or other special event during the run of their show. The selection process may take up to 6 months. Applicants will be notified as soon as a decision has been made and a contract will be sent to selected artists.
Request Gallery Floor Plan
Currently, we are considering proposals for 2018 on the San Antonio Tricentennial
Bihl Haus commemorates the San Antonio Tricentennial with an entire year of programming informed by critical commentary and diverse historical perspectives on the meaning of the Tricentennial. What did the “conquest” mean in what would become Texas? Texas was a slave-owning state–how does that affect contemporary understanding of Texas history? What are the historical and contemporary contributions of women, Native Americans, African Americans, LGBTQ communities and other diverse populations? We are currently seeking thoughtful proposals with deep and broad context and meaning from diverse voices across the City. Think 300 years in the past and 300 years in the future.
