The Arts Center in Corvallis, OR annually accepts exhibition proposals from artists nationwide. TAC is currently accepting applications to exhibit in the Main and Corrine Woodman Galleries through December 31, 2023. 

It is free to apply. TAC encourages a diverse selection of artists to apply, including artists from historically underrepresented communities. We welcome all artists regardless of citizenship status, color, familial status, gender identity or expression, religious observance, sex, sexual orientation, and sources or level of income.

Artists working in all mediums and genres are encouraged to apply. Artist collectives, organizations and groups are welcome to submit proposals on a single application. Please clearly list all artists involved.

Artists are encouraged, but not required, to display works for sale. The Arts Center’s commission rate is a 50/50 split with the artists. Arrangements for artists with exclusive gallery commitments are possible. 

Exhibitions are selected by the Curator and the The Arts Center Exhibition Committee. TAC’s EC is a group of volunteers made up of professional artists and community members. The EC is asked to review all materials submitted, and select artists who show excellence in medium and concept as well as help meet the mission of TAC.

Please email Jennie Castle,, for all inquires regarding this call. Emailing other TAC staff will only delay response time.

 A Zoom Q&A session with the curator is scheduled for Monday, December 11, 2023, 5:30 -6:30 PM PST. Register Here.

  • Will the Corvallis community be engaged and enriched by this work?
  • Why would The Arts Center show this work here and now?
