How can I show my work at trestle? does the gallery accept artist submissions directly?
Trestle Gallery hosts two annual exhibition open calls - Introductions and Small Works , to which national and international artists are welcome to apply. Open call submissions from artists must be submitted via trestlegallery.submittable.com - submissions sent to our email will not be considered. We are not accepting exhibition proposals at this time.
Where can I find more information on your open calls, like the application deadline, requirements, or fee?
You can find thorough and up-to-date information for all our current open calls on our submittable page at trestlegallery.submittable.com.
I’m interested in one of the residency opportunities provided by trestle gallery. where can i learn more information?
what’s the difference between the Trestle Artist Residency and the Critical feedback program?
Good question! The Critical Feedback Program was designed to be a critique group where peer learning and feedback is facilitated by session leaders, whereas the Trestle Artist Residency has a focus on mentorship with advisor led critiques, individual meetings, and studio visits in which the guests are tailored to that session’s residents. To figure out which one might be best for you, learn about about our programs here.
I submitted to an open call. When will I hear back?
Generally, you can expect to hear from us between 2 and 4 weeks after the deadline has past. This of course varies based on the volume of submissions. If we’ve received a high number of submissions, and we need more time, we will let you know. If it’s been over 4 weeks and you haven’t heard back, please check your spam and/or promotional folders in your inbox.
I submitted to an online exhibition. where’s my work?
For fairness in display of works in our online exhibitions, we set the galleries to randomize their order on every page refresh. If you got a confirmation from submittable - your work is there! Try refreshing a few times to see if you were missing your piece.
