Artist Showcase Submission Details


The Artist Showcase is a community art exhibit celebrating artists in St. Louis Park and Golden Valley, and building connections between local artists and our communities.  We encourage all artists and creatives who live, work or study in St. Louis Park or Golden Valley to submit work for the Artist Showcase. 

The Artist Showcase is presented at The Galleries of Brookview Golden Valley.  The exhibit opening reception is January 31, 2020 from 5pm-9pm.  The exhibit is on open display February 1 - March 7.  

Online submission is open September 1-30, 2019.  Artists are notified of selection by November 8. Any one person may submit up to three works of 2D, 3D, and/or projected digital/film art. Our goal is to display work from as many artists as possible, but display space is limited and we may not be able to accommodate all submissions.  The Artist Showcase displays a wide variety of work in many sizes, so we encourage artists submitting multiple works to include a variety of sizes, if available.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Work must be submitted by an individual artist (one person) who lives, works, or studies in St. Louis Park or Golden Valley, MN.

  • Works must be appropriate for public display for all ages in our cities' spaces. Works must not be offensive or condescending towards any race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation, and must not be used to promote or oppose political views. 

  • Works must be original and may not have been displayed in St. Louis Park or Golden Valley city displays or exhibits previously.  

  • Work delivered for display in the Artist Showcase must be the work pictured and submitted in this submission—no unapproved changes may be made. 

  • 2D artwork must be mounted and ready-to-hang.
