SEDIMENT welcomes proposals from artists and curators for gallery exhibitions, events, and workshops. Creative practitioners working in any media including sculpture, video, sound, performance, installation, social practice, drawing, photography, and painting are encouraged to submit. Experimental formats such as durational performance and socially-engaged practices are also welcome.
SEDIMENT’s exhibition cycle runs from September through June with typically three weeks to one month per exhibition. We are also interested in proposals for one-day/night events such as live performances, film screenings, and workshops. Please specify your scheduling preference in your application.
As a new aspect to our programming, SEDIMENT is curating STOREFRONT FEATURE EXHIBITIONS that coincide with our gallery programming. Storefront features are focused on creative works by local, regional, and international artists who produce art works in various formats intended for sale or distribution. SEDIMENT's gallery programming will continue to focus on experimental exhibition formats, while the storefront offers a public view of contemporary art and the opportunity to support artists directly through the sale of works. Please specificy whether you are applying for a gallery exhibition or a storefront feature in your application.

As an artist-run gallery, Sediment strives to support artists as much as we can with honorariums, installation and material support, accomodations, and return shipping. A limited amount of funding is available and considered on a case-by-case basis. Sediment reserves the right to photograph accepted works for publicity and educational purposes. Sediment receives 30% of all sales from the gallery and storefront, artists receive 70%.
