The Sheldon Jackson Museum is pleased to announce a solicitation for solo exhibitions by Alaska Native artists. Artists who reside in Alaska and are interested in applying for a solo exhibition are asked to submit an application for review on CaFÉ,

The Sheldon Jackson Museum was founded in 1888 to house an exceptional collection of Alaska Native ethnographic material. The Sheldon Jackson Museum and its collection were purchased by the State of Alaska to inspire human thought and artistic endeavor, to stimulate ethnographic research and to foster an awareness of, and an appreciation for, the enriching qualities of a multi-cultural existence.

Call for submissions will open on October 14, 2019 and close on November 23, 2019. Applicants will be notified in late December, 2019. The call will be for two solo exhibitions: January through mid-April of 2021 and January through mid-April of 2022. For more information contact the Sheldon Jackson Museum curator by calling 907-747-8904 or e-mailing Jackie Fernandez-Hamberg.

The exhibition will be held in a small gallery space at the Sheldon Jackson Museum. The gallery dimensions, available display cases and hanging system will be detailed in the call. Applicants will be notified of selection in late December.
