Gearbox Gallery Call for Entries Program

Annual Juried Exhibition: As part of our committment to promote a broad range of contemproary artists, GearBox Gallery hosts a juried exhibtion once a year. Open to artists who live and work in Northern California, these shows are juried by notable Bay Area gallerists, providing an opportunity for the artists to put their work in front of the juror and ultimately, if selected, show their work, potentially meeting other artists, critics and gallerists. Awards include future exhibtion opportunities at GearBox Gallery.

Inner Room Call for Entries: The Inner Room is an intimate interior exhibtion space at GearBox Gallery. Once a year the GearBox accepts guest artist proposals for the specific use of the Inner Room. The selected proposal is based on the quality of the artwork, with special emphasis on how it relates to, enhances, transforms, or makes innovative use of the space.
