CAS regularly offers submission opportunities for artists of all backgrounds, disciplines, and professional status. 

As we do not have a permanent collection, CAS cannot accept submissions of artwork outside of the opportunities outlined here. 

To be notified of upcoming submission opportunities, please join our email list


Submissions for the 2018 CAS Main Exhibition Season are now open through February 1, 2017. 

We accept applications from artists and curators in any medium or style. We encourage artists working in all forms, including digital art, fiber art, film/video, illustration, installation art, performance art, pottery, and sculpture, to consider making a proposal. 

All proposals are reviewed by an independent jury panel that changes each year. CAS will notify all applicants of the jury’s decisions by April 2017. All work will be considered for solo and group shows at the recommendation of the panel in a "blind jury" process. 

Please note that artists who presented their work as part of the 2017 Season will not be eligible to re-apply until 2019. 

To apply, please use our Online Application Form

Submissions for the 2017 Elevator Gallery exhibition season are closed as of December 1. 

The Elevator Gallery is an experimental exhibition space that features small works, installations, short art films, and other visual curiosities in up to eight shows each year. 

At about 6' by 13', the space will eventually make way for an elevator to our second floor when renovations are finished to create even more room for arts and culture at CAS—hence the name. But on another level, the gallery seeks to elevate the profile of alternative artists and styles not frequently seen in the CAS Exhibition Season. 

Submit a proposal to CAS explaining how you would like to use the gallery along with up to 10 images of your artwork. Artists will not only be selected by the quality of their work, but also how they re-envision the space in exciting, innovative ways. Click here to see a floor plan schematic of the Elevator Gallery

CAS schedules concerts, plays, dance, film screenings, book and poetry readings, puppet shows, and more year-round. Many factors are considered when scheduling these programs, including prior bookings for CAS and partner organizations, technical needs, cost, and audience appeal. 

All prospective performing artists and groups must submit proposals, including CV and work samples, to the Executive Director. For more information, contact us at



CAS schedules classes, lectures, and outreach initiatives led by a roster of master teachers. We accept teaching artist proposals that fit our organization's mission, add diversity to our slate, appeal to new and core audiences, and are led by high-quality educators who can manage students independently. 

All teaching artists must submit proposals, including outlined lesson plans, clear target audiences/age groups, CV and work samples that show subject mastery and teaching experience, to the Executive Director. For more information, contact us at
