The Chandler Arts Commission and Chandler Neighborhood Resources are looking for an Arizona-based artist or artist team with experience creating medium- to large-scale, three-dimensional objects to create monument signage for the upcoming renovation of Gazelle Meadows Park. The budget is $20,000 and will cover all aspects of the project including but not limited to: design, fabrication, project management, transportation, installation, and insurance. The desired signage will embody the neighborhood’s strong sense of community and celebrate its vibrant cultural diversity across Galveston’s eight unique subdivisions. The signage will honor the area’s multicultural heritage, recognizing the invaluable contributions of local nonprofits and organizations that enrich our community fabric. Additionally, it should symbolize the neighborhood’s ties to Galveston Elementary School and Chandler High School, reflecting the pride shared by our residents.

Call for Work: Vinyl Wrap Projects

Call to Artists
Request for Qualifications: City of Chandler vinyl wrap projects
Deadline – Monday, August 5, 2024, 11:59 p.m. Mountain Standard Time

The Chandler Arts Commission, Chandler Downtown Redevelopment, and Downtown Chandler Community Partnership are looking for eight Arizona-based artists or artist teams to create digital artwork that will be printed and installed in several locations. There are variations in the parameters for the different projects, but the required skillsets are the same, so the RFQ process has been combined to make it easier to apply.  While the City is primarily seeking digital illustrations, original work by photographers, painters, drawers printmakers, and other 2D artists will also be considered. All designs are subject to approval by city staff. Artist stipends for the project range from $1,200 to $5,000 depending on the scope of the project. Production and installation costs will be covered by the City.

Call for Work: Art Quilts

Call to Artists
Art Quilts: IMPACT!
Due Date: Monday, September 9 at midnight MST
Juror: Wendy Raisanen

For our 29th annual Art Quilts exhibition, we are looking for art quilts that have a bold visual impact and message. High contrast color and graphic qualities make a big statement. Strong design and contrast are key to attracting the eye and leaving an impression with an unforgettable image. Quilting is a perfect medium for high-key hues that create defined lines and strong graphic qualities. Inspiration could come from pop art, comics, mass culture, mid-century-modern design, and graphic design.

Fiber artists from across the country and abroad are invited to submit to this annual exhibition of contemporary art quilts, showcasing some of the finest textile art on display in the Southwestern United States. This exhibition will take place at the Vision Gallery and is expected to draw hundreds of visitors to experience quilting as an art form.

Wendy Raisanen is a fiber artist living in Phoenix. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from Arizona State University. She is the curator of exhibitions and collections for Scottsdale Public Art and a member of Five15 Arts @ Chartreuse on Grand Ave.

Exhibition Proposal Form


  • Incomplete and improperly formatted applications may not receive a response
  • Small group exhibitions including 2-4 artists in different media organized around a common theme are more likely to be accepted than solo exhibitions. This benefits both the gallery and the artists as it attracts a wider variety of viewers, but still allows the artists to display a cohesive body of work, as opposed to individual objects.
  • Solo artists may still apply, but will be considered for both group and solo exhibitions.
  • The quality of your images matters. Make sure your photographs are in focus, well lit, and with a plain background. It is possible to take good photographs with your phone, but if you have a better option – use it! Here is a good tutorial for taking quality pictures of your artwork with a smartphone.
  • We do not have a budget for shipping artwork. If you live outside of Arizona, it may be quite costly to get your artwork to and from the gallery.
  • Take a look at our past exhibitions to get a feel for the kinds of shows we host.
  • If your primary goal is selling artwork, we might not be the right gallery for you. Although we are thrilled when artwork sells, our focus is on hosting engaging, thought-provoking exhibitions for our community to enjoy and not commercial sales.
