Holley Gallery Solo Exhibitions

Ready for a Solo Exhibition? Holley Gallery is the smaller exhibition space at MFA Circle Gallery that is available to MFA members to host their own one-person exhibitions.

Holley Gallery Guidelines

The Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) reserves the right to refuse artwork not meeting standard exhibition guidelines. Please call Circle Gallery for submissions schedule.

Guidelines for MFA member two-week solo exhibitions:

Application fee is $10 non-refundable. Exhibition fee is $250 per two-week exhibition with an optional third week for $50 upon request and approval.

For preliminary review of materials by the Exhibitions Committee send application materials to Candice Bigelow at CLBigelow@verizon.net.

Application Guidelines:

Each application must include the following:

  • WRITTEN PROPOSAL: Submit a listing of artistic highlights and a brief statement articulating why you desire a solo exhibition, and what type of exhibition you are planning. Be specific about what type of work you wish to show—Is the artwork 2-D or 3-D? Is there a theme or particular focus such as landscapes or still life? The gallery space is small; please consider the greater impact of a focused, well presented body of work.
  • DIGITAL IMAGES: A minimum of 5 digital images representative of work you intend to exhibit. Digital images must be in good quality jpeg format. Three-dimensional artists shall present a minimum of two, preferably three views of each work. All image files are to be numbered to correspond to the artist’s image list and include artist’s last name (e.g. 01Smith.jpeg).
  • Proposal must also include a list to show: date of application, artist’s name, address, telephone and email address, followed by a numerical listing of the 5 minimum representations of work you intend to exhibit including work’s title, medium, dimensions, and file name of each jpeg.
