2024-2026 EXHIBITIONS AT THE THOMPSON GALLERY OF ART
The Thompson Gallery of Art at Furman University invites established artists to propose solo and/or group exhibitions for the 2024-25 and 2025-2026 academic years. Exhibitions typically run between four to six weeks and engage the broader Furman University community through an opening or closing reception. Stipends are available for artists willing to give a gallery talk or tour at this reception. The University oversees and provides insurance for the artwork while exhibited in the Gallery and can offer a small reimbursement for shipping; all additional shipping costs are the responsibility of the artist. The Thompson Gallery is approximately 900 square feet in area and has about 110 linear feet of exhibitable wall space. Applicants may download a floor plan of the gallery here and a SketchUp model of the space here.
Exhibitions of all media and thematic inquiries will be considered, but the Department of Art is especially interested in exhibitions that explore art’s engagement with the timeliest issues facing our community and art’s capacity to creatively inspire the formation of a more equitable and just society. Preference will also be given to exhibitions that create interdisciplinary dialogues with Furman’s institutes (the Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities; the Riley Institute of Government, Politics and Public Leadership; the Institute for the Advancement of Community Health; and the Hill Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship) and the University’s broader student population through the explorations of such themes as political discourse and engagement, social justice and advocacy, artificial intelligence (AI), environmental consciousness, gender and sexual identity, historical memory and archiving, and the lived experience of marginalized social identities.
To propose an exhibition at the Thompson Gallery, please submit the following materials to thompsongalleryofart@furman.edu by Friday, March 15, 2024:

A one-page exhibition proposal that includes:
o
Exhibition title
o
Desired time frame of exhibition (2024-25 or 2025-26 academic year)
