How to submit to SLC art galleries

The process of submitting work to art galleries is widely misunderstood. Just as there are different genres of art (even within one medium) so, too, are there different art galleries with specific focuses. Not all galleries accept all kinds of work. It happens frequently that great art is not accepted into a great gallery, simply because it does not fit within the focus of the gallery. (To further understand this relationship, imagine a great Heavy Metal band playing inside a great classical concert hall.) As you’ll see in the list below, each Salt Lake City art gallery has a different focus as well a wide range of submission requirements and deadlines. This list (a perpetually in progress list that we hope YOU’LL help us refine) is filled with insights from the gallery directors of Salt Lake City intended to help you find the best fit for your art. To help us amend our gallery information, please email Michael Christensen at Michael@utaharts.org (Also, please bear in mind while reading the list that we use the term “Do’s and Don’ts” loosely.  What we mean to say is that each gallery has unique preferences and each listed preference should be respectfully adhered to.) Thank you for your time and we hope that your submitting experience is rewarding.
