SAM Local Spotlight (Expired)

SAM Local Spotlight is an open call-out for a solo artist to exhibit a body of work at SAM.

The aim of this exhibition is to encourage, stimulate and promote local and regional cultural activities as part of SAM’s annual program. SAM’s curatorial team will work closely with the artist, enabling them to gain professional experience working in a museum context.

This exhibition call out is open to artists from North Central and North East regional Victoria. SAM welcomes artists who are either based regionally, or those who originated from these areas and maintain strong connections with these contexts.

  • Your contact details including your name, address, email and phone number.
  • 3-5 jpeg images of your work. Images need to be web resolution (72 dpi) and labelled with your name, title, medium and dimensions in the file name.
