As part of the 2016 Photographers Exchange project to provide information on the public galleries of Southern California, I had a discussion with Ron Linden, the Curator and Director of the Los Angeles Harbor College (LAHC) Fine Arts gallery regarding exhibition submissions.

DS: Ron, first, thanks for your time to help explain the policies and processes for artist to provide submissions for the LAHC Fine Art Gallery. Does the Art Gallery have a specific schedule for when an artist can make a submission?

RL: Thanks for your inclusion of the LAHC Fine Arts Gallery on the reference page for The PhotoExchange. As to submission, I’m always open to submissions and proposals. An artist can submit by either email (ronmon@dslextreme.com) or mailing the Art Gallery: LAHC Fine Arts Gallery, 1111 Figueroa Place, Wilmington, CA 90744

DS: Do you have any specific requirements for the artist submissions?

RL: Yes, I would like to see a CV and sample of the artworks, but please do not send me an artist statement. As to the artwork, please do not submit originals and the submission, including the sample artwork, will not be returned.

DS: Can you tell us about the process for the submission evaluation? Does the submission go before a exhibition review committee?

RL: We are a small organization, thus there is no review committee. We do not have a fixed calendar and our exhibition schedule is usually planned from six to twelve months. We are also open to guest curator proposals as well as artist submissions.

DS: Do you have any open calls regarding thematic subjects or are you looking for particular types of art work?

RL: At this time, we do not have any open calls. We are modest in size and budget, but immodest in ambition. The Fine Arts Gallery at Los Angeles Harbor College remains committed to producing high quality exhibitions by contemporary artists from the West Coast and beyond. Diverse and eclectic in scope, the gallery features work of painters, sculptors, photographers, videographers, filmmakers, and architects, providing an essential component to a meaningful arts education and a welcome antidote to the regimen of academic and workaday life.

DS: Ron, thank you for your insight on your curator processes for LAHC. We appreciate it very much.

RL: The pleasure was all mine. Thank you again for including LAHC on your reference page.
