Hillyer Art Space - Open Call for Artists

Hillyer Art Space invites artists to submit to its current Open Call for Artists for the 2014-2015 exhibition season. We pride ourselves in exhibiting talented artists working in all media and subject matter.
Hillyer presents monthly exhibitions, and each accepted artist is given a room in our three room gallery space to present his or her work.Accepted artists also benefit from our Mentorship Program, where our highly qualified Artist Advisory Committee work individually with each artist to prepare each exhibition and establish the artists in the DC arts community. Artists are chosen by the Artist Advisory Committee and will be notified of selection in February 2014.
