¬On average, one-third of Manifest's exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. It is important to our non-profit operations that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects. The group shows provide diversity of approach, media, style, and geographic origin, while the solo exhibits provide a deeper insight into one artist's vision.
Well over 200 artists exhibit and 3000 or more patrons visit the gallery each year; thousands of artists submit works to thematic projects produced at the gallery. Our exhibits are routinely reviewed in local and sometimes national news and art publications (including Sculpture Magazine, Drawing Magazine, and Art Papers among others). We believe this makes the spots in our schedule reserved for solo or proposed exhibits highly valuable.

¬Manifest's main selection process involves a complex two-part system. Most exhibits are juried by an anonymous 9-12 member panel of professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury then passes along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool. Solo proposals are handled in a similar way. While artists may provide a specific goal for an exhibit, the final selection and layout of works will be determined by a Manifest curator in consultation with the artist.
