The Visual Arts Committee of Fairbanks Arts Association invites artists and artisans residing in Alaska to submit for review digital images of their work for possible solo, group, or curated exhibitions in the Bear Gallery for the year 2023. 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. Portfolios are reviewed by a panel of professional Alaskan artists and are chosen solely on the merit of the work samples entered.

Submission to the Portfolio Review constitutes an agreement to meet the gallery’s scheduling needs for the exhibit year beginning January 2023. Any selected artist unable to meet the gallery’s schedule will have to re-submit for review in the following year.

  • 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 2019 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.

  • Up to 10 images of work completed in the last 5 years.
  • If approved for an exhibition, artwork in the exhibition must be completed within the last 2 years.
