The Carrack hosts as many as 20 juried exhibitions each year as well as 2 open community exhibitions and a wide range of multidisciplinary events. Follow this link to learn more about regular community-organized programming at the gallery.


Submitting a Proposal to The Carrack

Until March 18, 2019, The Carrack is accepting exhibition proposals for 2019. Find all the details in our Application Guidelines; find the calls and  application forms on our Calls To Artists page.

Three-week exhibitions feature an opening event and a public talk. One-week exhibitions feature at least one opening or event, in lieu of our regular hours. Artists and curators are encouraged to program additional events during their exhibition’s run. Also, artists and curators are responsible for designing, installing and deinstalling their own exhibitions.

Submitted proposals will be reviewed by our Curatorial Team that includes past Carrack artists and are moderated by Gallery Director Saba Taj.


Join us in January for our Community Show, where anyone can bring a piece of artwork that will be displayed in the exhibition. This year, we are introducing a suggested theme, the Apocolypse! Find out more.

Then, this summer, we will hold our second annual Sticky Note Show, a fun new take on our summer community show and fundraiser.

Inspired by the legendary yearly show at Giant Robot 2 in Los Angeles, all of the art has one common characteristic–the medium is a sticky note.

We are seeking miniature art that is presented on a standard size (3” x 3” square) sticky note of any color. Accepting sticky art now! Email with questions.

Exhibit dates TBD.


The Carrack hosts a wide range of multidisciplinary events such as readings, concerts, dance performances, art happenings, slideshows and film screenings in addition to workshops, roundtables, series and lectures.
