Calls for Submissions

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting or renting short-term studio space at the Gladstone Hotel! The Gladstone is different from institutional or commercial galleries. We operate at the intersection of arts, hospitality and social change leveraging intersectional contemporary programs to explore the exponential power of many people of different disciplines coming together to collaborate and have conversations.

THE GLADSTONE IS FOCUSED ON SHOWCASING INDEPENDENT AND EMERGING ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS.

We are committed to showcasing local artists and to empowering micro economies within the arts. Artists are welcome to sell their works to visitors; the Gladstone does not expect commission on these sales. As an art and design incubator, we are a place where new, emerging and established artists can try new things with the full support of curators, programmers and hotel staff.
