Target Gallery Exhibitions

My Queer Valentine

Deadline: September 15, 2019 at 11:59 PM ET
Exhibition Dates: January 25, 2020 – March 8, 2020
Juror: Andy Johnson, director of Gallery 102

Target Gallery invites artists working in all visual media to apply to My Queer Valentine,  an exhibition that will explore love and relationships through LGBTQ+ artists perspectives. The themes and subject of artwork in this exhibition should explore non-heteronormative and non-binary relationships. The tone of the exhibition is playful, fun, and cheeky, so we encourage artists to apply with their perspectives on love (romantic or asexual) with this in mind. To celebrate this exhibition, Target Gallery will be hosting a special Valentine’s Day reception and event in partnership with local LGBTQ+ organizations.

Studio and Residency Opportunities

2020 Post-Graduation Residency

Deadline: September 22, 2019

The Torpedo Factory Post-Grad Residency is a competitive juried program that provides meaningful support and 3-month term solo studio space. This residency is open to recently-graduated students who earned a bachelor’s or master’s art degree from an accredited university. The program is unique for addressing the critical post-graduation juncture in an emerging artist’s career, offering an opportunity for professional development, and a chance to define their independent work process outside of the academic context. Submissions are open for both art school students in the region and nationwide, provided artists submit proof of residence in the D.C. metropolitan area.

Residents receive studio space and public presentation opportunities, including an artist talk and participation in a culminating curated exhibition in the Target Gallery, the contemporary exhibition space for the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Residents are active and equal participants in the Torpedo Factory’s unique creative community. Residents benefit from engagement with local, national, and international artists.
