**OPEN CALL for Dance/Performance/Movement works in progress 

SPACE Gallery is seeking proposals for performance/dance works as part of our newly established Moving in SPACE works-in-progress series.  The series aims to provide a much needed regional performance opportunity for works in development in the contemporary dance and performance scene. 

This call is open through December 11th 

Exhibition Window

We are looking for artists with a contemporary practice to exhibit work in our window. This exhibition space is on view to the foot traffic of Congress Street, making it an ideal platform to bring unconventional work into the public sphere. We promote work that is contemporary, engaging, and suited to activate the entire window both at night and during the day.

The application is open through September 15th, 2017 to December 15th, 2017.

SPACE Gallery’s intern program is designed to be a hands-on, flexible learning experience catered to each individual's learning goals. Our communal, cooperative work environment ensures that creative input and expression are encouraged and necessary. Every level of operations at SPACE involves volunteers, and we expect that as an intern, you will identify interest areas for building experience and developing skills. Projects and schedules will vary day by day, but we are committed to providing interns with a meaningful professional learning experience.

No available internships at this time. Please check back soon or send inquiries to our Outreach Coordinator, Martha Schnee: 




Volunteers are an integral part of SPACE. Volunteering can take many forms: gallery sitting, staffing the door at events, prepping exhibition spaces, or making pancakes in the park. Volunteering at SPACE is a great way to meet people and engage with your local art community.

Our aim is to make the volunteer experience a win-win-win situation. We want to match volunteers with opportunities that engage their interests. We work with volunteers based on availability and desired time commitment. Some folks volunteer once a week, others volunteer once a year.

FMI about volunteering at SPACE, please get in touch with our Outreach Coordinator, Martha Schnee: 


We have an ongoing, generic call for exhibition submissions. Guidelines can be found here.

SPACE is a nonprofit organization that supports contemporary arts projects, champions artists, and encourages an open exchange of ideas.
