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 dislpay 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.
Currently, we are considering proposals for late 2017 and throughout 2018 on the Tricentennial. Please contact Kellen McIntyre for proposal information.
