General Call for Proposals


Marshall University’s School of Art & Design is home to two galleries: the Charles W. and Norma C. Carroll Gallery and the Birke Art Gallery. Our galleries are located in the Visual Arts Center in downtown Huntington, WV providing opportunities to view national and international artwork year round.


Proposals for art exhibitions are accepted on an ongoing basis, but must be submitted at least eight months prior to the requested exhibition dates. To propose an exhibition, please find the application link below. Group proposals should be submitted as a single form with artist statements, biographies, CV, and sample images from each artist. If the proposal document exceeds 24MB, a link to sample images should be included in the proposal PDF.


Proposals are reviewed twice a year and accepted artists are notified via email. Once accepted, artists coordinate with the Gallery Director to finalize exhibition details.

Shipping Artworks

Artist(s) are responsible for the cost of delivery and return shipping for their work.


Galleries supports all social media, digital, and print materials for exhibition promotion.

Sale of Artwork

Artists provide a price list for works included in an exhibition for insurance purposes. If a gallery patron expresses interest in acquiring a work in an exhibition, sales will be directed to the artist. The artist may also elect to list works as Not for Sale (NFS) on the price list.
