PLUG Programming Criteria.
We do have an open submission policy for programming at PLUG, however, please consider the following criteria for each series before submitting.
Exhibitions in the Main Gallery: PLUG will host 6 exhibitions per year in our main gallery space at 1613 Genessee. PLUG aims to introduce new work to Kansas City's Arts Community (Artists who already have a significant presence in the Kansas City Art Scene will not be our focus. Artists who have had a solo or two/three person show in Kansas City in the past two years will likely not be prime candidates for shows at PLUG. Artists with existing local exposure should, however, submit work if they wish to be considered for external collaborations PLUG might initiate with artist spaces in other cities, as well as features in the extended exhibition space on the PLUG Blog).

Exhibitions in the Solo Space: in addition to the exhibitions in our main gallery, PLUG hosts concurrent solo exhibitions of Kansas City artists in our recently renovated Solo Space Gallery adjacent to our Main Gallery Space. Solo Space is specifically dedicated to the work of Kansas City artists who do not have representation with other galleries in the city. We except proposals for the Solo Space on the rolling basis. Our solo shows are accompanied by a modest stipend.
