SEEKING QUEER & ALLIED ARTISTS

Updated April 8, 2021

Gallery Maple is searching for professional queer and allied artists seeking commercial gallery representation in Seattle, Washington. We are the first queer-centric fine art gallery in Seattle, and are eager to make a mark by connecting the city's burgeoning art scene with its bold, vibrant queer culture and community. We are starting small, as an online-only gallery, but with big dreams of becoming a brick-and-mortar gallery when the timing is right.

We want to represent bold, professionally-minded artists that are interested in a long-term partnership with Maple, who are passionate about the work they create and have ambitions to work as full-time artists, selling to distinguished collectors (with our help, of course).  Local artists are encouraged to apply, but we welcome all artists that are able to physically deliver their work to Seattle, WA. Selected artists will be responsible for delivery/shipment of work to Gallery Maple.

There are no restrictions on medium, and we welcome two and three-dimensional artwork

We are strongly committed to diversity. Artists from historically underrepresented communities, trans and POC artists are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please send a pdf to staff@gallerymaple.com containing the following:

- Name

-Pronouns (if comfortable)

-Resume/CV

-Email Address and/or Phone Number

-A brief statement about how you or your work connects to the LGBTQ+ community and why you think Gallery Maple should represent your work. (If living outside of the Pacific Northwest, please include a brief mention of how you would plan to get your work to Maple.)

-6-10 professional images of your work, complete with title, medium, size, year (you may include pricing if available).

OR, if you have an up-to-date website that contains all of the above information, an email with a hyperlink will suffice. Please note, incomplete submissions may not be considered.
