Applications are assessed twice a year. Members can submit applications at any time.
Umbrella Studio invites exhibition proposals from established and emerging contemporary visual artists and curators seeking to present new and original work in a professional gallery environment. Applications are accepted at any time, however the next assessment panel will meet in August 2020. To be included for this round, please ensure your applications are submitted by 5pm Friday 31st July 2020.
Applications will be considered for 2022 and beyond, however smaller projects may be considered for earlier slots. An exhibition sub-committee assesses proposals / applications. Successful applicants will receive a letter detailing their exhibition arrangements.
As a rough guide there are three exhibition spaces for applications: Space 1 (large), Space 2 (medium), Space 3 (small). Different terms and conditions apply for the use of each of these spaces. You are required to be an Umbrella member to exhibit at Umbrella Studio. To become a member, click here.

Umbrella strongly encourages proposals from emerging artists, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and linguistically diverse and differently-abled artists. Should you require support or an alternate proposal method to meet your needs please contact us. If you are a non-Indigenous artist and your proposed artworks for exhibition containing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander subject matter you will need to explain your process for obtaining permission to use Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property. Excellent resources to support you in this can be found here and here.
