The Chadron State College Gallery Series is a combined effort between the college’s Galaxy Series and the Art program. Artists from across the country, as well as our own emerging student artists are featured in two exhibit spaces: The Main Gallery and Gallery 239. The galleries are located in Memorial Hall on the scenic Chadron State College campus.

Call for Artists

Chadron State College continually accepts and reviews submissions for exhibitions that provide the academic and regional communities with visual art experiences that are aesthetically stimulating and engaging. The proposal process is open to all persons age 18 and over. Proposals for all forms of visual art including new media and installation are encouraged.

Proposals are continually accepted and reviewed via email by the Gallery Committee. The Committee, which selects exhibits and exhibitions for the Memorial Hall Galleries, base its decisions on (though not limited to) the following criteria: quality of artwork, originality, educational opportunities/tie in with college curriculum, and balance with the gallery schedule as a whole. Additionally, paid opportunities for workshops/gallery talks in conjunction with the exhibit may be available.
