Submissions to the Gallery

Looking at art

Applications Deadlines:
Now accepting submissions for our 2021 and 2022 schedule.

The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is an integral component of the University of Dallas Art Department and its exhibitions are designed to encourage a dialogue between the university community, as well as the broader community, by inviting an array of contemporary artists to our campus.

We welcome submissions and proposals from artists and independent curators year round. We typically hold two person exhibitions so we encourage artists to let us know if they have another artist in mind to exhibit with. National and international submissions are welcome however we encourage applicants to find other sources of funding to cover shipping costs. Exhibition proposals are reviewed by a committee of University of Dallas scholars and artists. Our exhibitions average 4 weeks in duration and generally follow a typical school year September through May.  

* We accept submissions year round and applicaticants will remain eligible for later programming. While all artforms are welcomed we strongly encourage proposals with an emphasis in sculpture and installation at this time.
