State Arts Council Announces Call for Artists for Block Island Airport Gallery

The gallery space at the Block Island Airport is accepting art submissions for their 2017 exhibitions. The gallery program is a partnership between RISCA and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation, to promote outstanding work by artists living and working in Rhode Island. The gallery at the Block Island Airport will present art to an ever-changing audience of local, national and international travelers. Works in all media will be considered. Note that the Block Island Airport Gallery is best suited to moderately-sized works. The Block Island Airport presents four artists per year in solo exhibitions. Artists included in the 2017 exhibitions will receive a $100 stipend for participating in the program.

Eligibility: All participating artists must be Rhode Island residents. No students, please. Resident Block Island artists are encouraged to apply. 

Artists are encouraged to apply to the gallery even if they have applied in previous years and not been selected. Artists who have exhibited previously are ineligible for new consideration for a period of two years.

Entry Deadline: September 1, 2016
