RISCA Call for Submissions

The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts announced a call for art by Rhode Island artists for exhibition at The Airport Galleries located on Block Island and in Warwick. Artists working in all media are encouraged to submit their work for consideration.

Newly created gallery spaces at the Block Island Airport and T.F. Green Airport are accepting art submissions for their 2014 exhibitions. The gallery program, which includes Block Island Airport Gallery and GREEN SPACE, is a partnership between RISCA and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation that promotes outstanding work by artists living and working in Rhode Island. The spaces will present art to an ever-changing audience of local, national and international travelers.

Work in all media will be considered. Block Island Airport Gallery includes opportunities for exhibiting indoors and outdoors. GREEN SPACE includes several large walls and open spaces that are particularly well suited to large scale works.

Eligibility: All participating artists must be RI residents. No students please.

Selection: Artists will be selected for the 2014 exhibitions by a review panel that will include practicing artists, arts professionals and community members. Artists included in the 2014 exhibitions will receive a $100 stipend for participating in the program.

Artists may apply online. All submitted work will be considered for both gallery locations unless applicants indicate an interest in only one of the galleries. Please note that larger work is better suited to GREEN SPACE while smaller scale pieces are best for The Block Island Airport Gallery.

The application deadline is October 1, 2013. To apply, please email either of the following to riairart@gmail.com:

A link to an up-to-date web site that includes images with captions (title, year, media, size), a current cv and artist’s statement


A link to a Flickr page with 10 images with captions (title, year, media, size) and attach to the email a current cv and artist’s statement.
