If you would like to propose an exhibit at the Chris White Gallery in Wilmington, Delaware, please use the form found on this page.
Dimensions: The gallery is large, with 80 linear feet of wall space in the upper level, and 171 linear feet in the lower level — 251 total linear feet in all. Floor space is 980 square feet in the upper level and 1,350 square feet in lower level. Exhibits should fill one floor or both. Installations are possible, but since the gallery is rented for special events, floor space for installations is generally limited. Click here to see the floor plans in PDF format.
Exhibits should have a curator other than the artists on display. We have a list of approved curators. In general, curators rather than the artists work with our gallery to manage the exhibition. This includes planning the display of work, setting calendar dates, arranging events, arranging delivery and pick-up of work, providing publicity materials, etc. In general, we pay a professional to install exhibits per curator’s instructions.
We encourage events in addition to first-Friday Art Loop receptions. However, because every event requires additional insurance, cleaning fees, and time from volunteers, the number of additional events the gallery can support is limited. As of June, 2022, the gallery is only open for special events and by appointment.
We encourage music at receptions. Our budget is limited, but we like to have music!
We encourage the sale of artwork on display. We are a non-profit organization. One source of revenue is the sale of artwork. Artists get a 70% commission on works sold.
Artists exhibit their work at their own risk. We are not able to insure work on display, so artists need to carry their own insurance.
After submitting the form, you should hear back from the gallery within a week.
