ENGINE VISUAL ART SUBMISSIONS:

Engine strives to support artists by curating the shows of high artistic merit of a contemporary nature.

We annually accommodate students and the community with the annual open-call Rumpus show, which is open to all. If we cannot accommodate your work, we are happy to connect you with other spaces that may have availability.

TIMEFRAME: ENGINE stages both curated and proposed exhibitions. Our curatorial committee reviews proposals on an as-needed basis and strives to respond to each in a timely matter.

CURATORIAL FOCUS: Before submitting your exhibition ideas, please take a moment to think about how ENGINE’S curatorial focus relates to your work. ENGINE strives to bring a broad and contemporized interpretation of visual arts and design to our gallery spaces. ENGINE:

  • Is not a commercial gallery;
  • Seeks work that is contemporary, thought-provoking, conceptual;
  • Seeks work of artistic excellence;
  • Is interested in the history of Biddeford as a center for textiles and manufacturing;
  • Seeks to present exhibitions that add to our community, especially those that might not otherwise have an outlet in Maine;
  • Appreciates submissions that consider our specific gallery and programming space.

HOW TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL:

Submitting a proposal does not ensure that a show or installation will be hosted at Engine.
