Fairbanks Arts Association invites artists, artisans and curators from Alaska to submit for review a digital portfolio of artwork for solo, curated, or group exhibition in the Bear Gallery for the 2022 exhibition year. Every month, the Bear Gallery shows two fine arts exhibitions by Alaskan artists/artist groups working in a variety of media to local and out-of-town visitors of Fairbanks.
  • Solo Exhibit: One Artist 
  • Group: Separate works of two or more artists 
  • Curated: Curator selects theme, conceptual focus, and included artwork.
Eligibility: This call is open to residents of Alaska ages 18 or older. An individual artist or group of artists may have an exhibition in the Bear Gallery once every four years. Artists and/or groups who have had an exhibition prior to 2018 are eligible for consideration this year (curated exhibits are not subject to this policy). 

NOTE: Artists may submit only one solo proposal. Group proposals consisting of a juried component, a call for entry, or an exhibit entry fee cannot be submitted for portfolio review. Curated and group exhibits must have an organizing representative.

Portfolio Submission Requirements:
  • 5 to 10 images of work completed in the last 5 years.
  • Group Exhibit of more than 5 artists: two images of each artist's work will be accepted.
  • Artist resume: Not to exceed two pages. Include relevant education and training, and gallery exhibitions. Jurors do not see the artist resume, this is for Fairbanks Arts reference only. 
  • Brief Artist Statement / Statement of Exhibit Intent
Work Samples
No less than 5 and no more than 10 work samples must be uploaded in the "My Portfolio" section of CaFE. Samples should reflect high-quality work completed within the last five years. Up to three video files may be uploaded (this is included in the maximum of 10 uploads).

Conditions:  Submission to Fairbanks Arts Association's Portfolio Review constitutes agreement to meet the Bear Gallery's scheduling needs for the 2022 exhibition year, beginning January 2022. Any selected artist unable to meet the Bear Gallery's schedule may have to re-submit for review in the following year.
