What do I need to submit applications to galleries?
When you decide to submit your work to galleries you need to present your work and yourself in a professional manner. Most galleries will only look at your work if you take the time to professionally package it and include all necessary materials so they have a strong sense of your work.
For the Gallery 234 these rules still apply but in keeping with the educational mission of the gallery we will work with students to help them prepare for the world outside the academic setting. Contact the Gallery 234 or the UW Art Department if you need assistance putting together the application materials.
