ABOUT THE SPACE

The Holland Project Gallery (located at 140 Vesta Street, Reno, NV 89502) is a versatile space that can feature large exhibitions or smaller installations. During any month we have 1-3 exhibits on display with gallery hours of Tues.-Fri. 3-6PM or by appointment (call 775-742-1858 or email alisha@hollandreno.org).

 

GALLERY MISSION STATEMENT

The Holland Project Gallery seeks to create the go-to art space in Reno to see young, contemporary artists and their influences both regionally and nationally.

The mission of The Holland Project Gallery is to:

  • facilitate exhibitions and events showcasing young, emerging and professional artists
  • provide real world experience in gallery practices for young and emerging artists
  • present curated and aesthetically considered exhibitions
  • develop art opportunities for youth in the region
  • create community collaborations through art
  • offer tools and workshops for creative experimentation and development

 

ARTISTS + CURATORS: APPLY FOR A SHOW

We are always open to ideas, submissions and discussions regarding visual art shows and potential shows, as well as small-scale performances within the gallery space. We are accepting proposals for the next round of reviews which will take place in January 2019 for exhibitions in spring/summer/fall of 2019. READ MORE HERE

 

ARTISTS UNDER 21

Each school year we host two Young Blood showcases. This is a night where artists under-21 can take over the gallery to feature and sell their artwork. No constraints. No screening process. The exhibit is two-part with Thursday night being a hands-on installation experience and Friday night as the exhibit and reception. The next Young Blood will be held September 28, 2018.

 

VOLUNTEER + INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The gallery is steered by a committee of people who have had experience both as artists and curators –  a group devoted to displaying the exciting talent that is inherent in youth. The Gallery Committee meets once a month to provide community input, develop new ideas and review submission proposals. Committee members serve at-will and volunteer a set amount of hours monthly.

The Gallery Intern, or Gallery Associate, is an individual under 25 who is interested in visual art and aesthetics, gallery operations, curation and promotion. The main focus of the position is the Micro Gallery in which the intern is given the reins to curate, coordinate, promote, install and host exhibitions. We seek out highly motivated and reliable individuals who can commit to a 3 month, 20 hours a month position that is filled through a simple application process. The next Gallery Associate position begins October 2018.

The Gallery Crew is a maintenance volunteer position that offers experience working in a gallery setting. The Crew assists once or twice a month (typically on weekends) with de-installing and installing exhibitions in the main gallery space.
