Apply to Art Access Gallery

Art Access Gallery serves as an access point through which emerging artists, artists with disabilities, and others with limited access to the arts can enter and thrive in the local arts community. They do so by exhibiting their own artwork with that of more-established Utah artists and by taking part in professional development activities. In doing so, Art Access Gallery celebrates and cultivates the talents of diverse artists while educating the community to understand the artistic talents of Utahns of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.year Art Access curates exhibits from emerging and established artists.

Essential Gallery Proposal Guidelines

Mission Statement

Art Access provides equal opportunities to inclusive arts programs for Utahns with disabilities and those with limited access to the arts.

Promoting art for everyone, Art Access galleries display stimulating art in an inclusive setting by artists from all backgrounds and with all points-of-view. Art access has two galleries available for exhibits: the main gallery for larger exhibits; and Access II, a smaller display space.


Art Access Gallery welcomes exhibit proposals from emerging and established artists, artists with and without disabilities, and artists representing other underserved communities. We focus on Utah artists and ask that artwork intended for exhibit at Art Access be new and not have been shown at other venues. Work in any medium is accepted.

Proposal Requirements and Application

We are debuting a new online application for the 2016 calendar year (2015 exhibiting artists have already been selected).  The proposal deadline is July 1, 2015 and must be completed using the online application HERE.

Exhibition Selection

The Art Access Gallery Committee will meet to select exhibitions for the 2015 gallery schedule. Quality of work, evidence of ability to produce proposed exhibit, balance of mediums submitted for season, and completion and clarity of the proposal will all be considered. Notification of acceptance will be made by mid-August.


Exhibition work does not have to be sold, but Art Access does require a 30% commission on all sales completed. Art Access is a member of the Salt Lake Gallery Association and participates in the Salt Lake Gallery Strolls, held the third Friday of each month, as well as having regular weekday hours for display and sales.
