Every fall, artists and creatives residing in Alaska are invited to submit digital images and/or videos of artwork for possible solo, group, or curated exhibitions. The Bear Gallery is open year-round and attracts many visitors, both local and international. Each month, the Bear Gallery shows two exhibitions by Alaskan artists/groups working in a variety of media. Portfolios are reviewed by a panel of professional Alaskan artists and are chosen solely on the merit of the work samples entered.
Portfolios may propose the following type of exhibitions:
- Solo Exhibition: One artist
- Group: Separate works of two or more artists
- Curated: Curator selects theme, conceptual focus, and included artwork.
The call for submissions for 2025 exhibitions is currently open through October 31, 2023. Click here for more information!
Fairbanks Arts programs are made possible by individual and corporate contributions, the City of Fairbanks Hotel/Motel Bed Tax, Fairbanks North Star Borough and Alaska State Council on the Arts.
