Arches Brewing Art 2020 Pride Exhibition: A Celebration of Queer/LGBTQ+ Art & Artists


Arches Brewing Art proudly announces its first-ever Pride exhibition to take place during the Tri-Cities Pride weekend celebration. We are looking for art that expresses and reflects the ‘Queer/LGBTQ+ Experience’. Work need not necessarily be Queer/LGBTQ+ in theme to apply. Still, artists selected should be prepared to provide a short description of each piece that connects either the subject matter or their own experience as a Queer/LGBTQ+ artist. The exhibition will be on display outside in the Arches Brewing Biergarten October 9th - 12th, 2020 from 1PM to 7PM.



During the weekend of October 9th - 11th, Arches Brewing, in collaboration with Douglas Dewey Entertainment, will host a three day Pride celebration featuring live music, stand up comedy, art, drag, and burlesque performances, food trucks, and a special beer release in honor of the festivities.



This juried show is open to artists 18 years of age and older. Artwork may be two-dimensional in any media and must be original works of art. Works can be new or older pieces.



There are no fees for submission.



Entries accepted for exhibition must have a professional appearance. Two-dimensional artwork must be mounted with hanging wire or other hanging apparatus and immediately ready for the wall. The Gallery reserves the right not to hang accepted works if they are not presented in the format specified. Artists are encouraged to submit two pieces; however, you may do so if you wish to submit fewer than two pieces.

Ideally, works should be smaller than 24x24 inches to accommodate many artists on our limited gallery wall areas. For artwork larger than 24 x24 inches or weighing more than 10 pounds, please contact the curator Thomas Schaefer to ensure your work meets gallery presentation requirements. Artists may not substitute another piece for the accepted work. 

Entries must be for sale and priced with the intent to sell. An online payment format must be provided by the artist — such as Venmo or PayPal. The curator will ensure proper sales and keep a record of sales transactions. Artists receive 100% of sales. 

Artists grant permission to Arches Brewing to reproduce accepted artwork for promotional uses in both printed and electronic forms.



Finalists will be notified by email. Artists whose work has been selected will be responsible for the delivery of work to Arches Brewing by October 7, 2020. Delivery and return instructions will be provided with the acceptance notification.
