Get your art in front of influential people in the art world as they consider your work for exhibition opportunities at Pen and Brush
Pen + Brush works with an impressive network of art world professionals to elevate underrepresented women artists and provide meaningful exhibition opportunities. Submit your work and be considered by art professionals, serving as P+B curators, for a variety of exhibition opportunities in our gallery.
Curatorial selection is the basis of P+B’s exhibitions: Curators have the option of selecting an artist's work for any type of exhibition they would like to curate, including but not limited to: solo, group, interactive, survey, themed. Artists selected by a curator will be contacted to discuss the nature of the selection and for exhibition scheduling.
Artists included in any curator’s specific exhibition will be considered for P+B’s Artist Roster, from which P+B staff will create additional exhibits throughout the year. P+B will review her existing body of work, discuss her new work, other exhibitions she may be in, determine what additional exhibition opportunities might be viable and fit into our exhibition schedule in the coming months. Exhibitions developed from our selected artist roster are at the sole discretion of Pen and Brush staff.
To be considered for our curatorial process, work must be professional level contemporary art and reflective of the standards of the field. Above all, we are committed to a selection program that is a merit-based opportunity in order to advocate for gender parity in the arts.
