Little Gallery Application Guidelines 2024-2025
*please read full guidelines for dates*

Who may apply: New or emerging artists or groups of artists (five persons or fewer). All mediums are accepted for consideration. Artists who have exhibited in the Little Gallery within the past five seasons are not eligible to reapply at this time.

Applications are no longer available.

Completed application deadline: Applications must be entered before 4:00pm (Tucson time) on Sunday, March 31, 2024 to be considered.

Materials required to be considered:
1. Completed application.

2. A biography of the artist or group.

3. Sample of the artwork to be exhibited. Reproducible images may be photographs, or downloadable electronic reproductions. These materials may be used, at the Foundation’s discretion, on the Gallery in the Sun Museum website.

4. A $35.00 non-refundable processing fee. We will accept payment in cash or credit card only and it must be submitted with the application.

5. Notifications: Letters will be mailed on Tuesday, April 30, 2024. In this letter all applicants will learn whether they have been chosen for the upcoming season, along with dates for their show.

6. Installation and Removal of the Exhibits: Set up can begin after 12:00pm (noon), the Saturday before your opening reception. The artist or group prior to you has until 12:00pm to remove their belongings. Your show will be exhibited for 13 days. Someone must always be in the Little Gallery during our regular business hours. The Gallery will provide 1 table, 1 chair, 1 key, and the firewood you need. Anything other than that must be provided by artist or group. When installing artwork, chains provided by the Gallery will be used for hanging your work to avoid damage to the adobe walls. If you need more chains, please notify us and we will be glad to accommodate you. Please note there is no Wi-Fi in the Little Gallery, so if you are receiving credit cards please check into other options.

7. Liability: Guest artists are responsible for all of their own property brought onto the Gallery in the Sun Museum complex. The DeGrazia Foundation assumes no responsibility for damage to or theft of the artists’ work.

8. Standard of Conduct: Artists exhibiting in the Little Gallery are guests of the DeGrazia Foundation and are expected to be worthy ambassadors for the Gallery in the Sun Museum. As such, they are required to be respectful of visitors and staff, the grounds and structures, indigenous flora and fauna, and the Little Gallery. This respect shows itself in the spoken word, in fair and honest transactions with customers, and in treatment of the environment. Disregard of this standard of conduct will constitute breach of the agreement, and the exhibiting artist or group may be asked to leave the Gallery in the Sun Museum.
