Submissions to the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery

Looking at art

Applications Deadlines:
Now accepting submissions for our 2023-2024 schedule.

Welcome and thank you for considering exhibiting at the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery. This gallery is an integral component of the University of Dallas Art Department and our exhibitions are designed to encourage a dialogue between artists and students; artists and the university community, as well as artists with the broader community. We hope to achieve this by inviting a dynamic array of contemporary artists to our campus.

We invite submissions and proposals from artists and independent curators year-round. Typically we hold two person exhibitions, however, we are open to ideas for group shows or solo shows. If you are an artist applying consider letting us know if there is another artist you would like to exhibit with.

We encourage local artists in the DFW area and Texas to apply. However, national and international submissions are welcome, additional sources of funding to cover accomodation and shipping expenses will need to be secured by the appliant.

Exhibition proposals are reviewed by a committee of the University of Dallas scholars and artists. Our exhibitions average 4 weeks in duration and generally follow a typical school year September through May.  

Submissions accepted year-round. To be considered for 2023-2024 have your applications in by September 1. Notifications sent by email on September 7,  2020.

Applications remain eligible for later programming if the artist wishes. All artf orms are welcomed.
