The Arts Center of the Capital Region Announces a Call for Artists



The Arts Center of the Capital Region is pleased to announce a Call for Artists. Submissions will be considered for opportunities including solo exhibitions, small and large group exhibitions, installation possibilities, and more. Visual artists in all media - clay arts, painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation, video, photography, performance, and mixed media presentations - are invited to submit proposals for consideration. Artists must live within a 100 mile radius of Troy, NY to be considered. Proof of residency may be required if selected.   

Submissions will be selected by the Arts Center with the help of a committee of professional artists, curators, and/or arts professionals. Artists who have exhibited at the Arts Center in the last 2 years (not including the Fence Show) are not eligible. All works must be original and completed within the last five years. Exhibitions selected from the call will be scheduled from August 2020 onward, and will range from approximately 4-12 weeks in length. 

Selected artists must exhibit work consistent with the images and proposals shown in their application. Any artists submitting video or digital media must provide their own equipment if selected.  

All applications must be sent through submittable.com. You will need to create a log-in account with submittable in order to apply. The deadline is Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at 11:59PM.   

This application is for artists only. We are not accepting group show or exhibitions at this time.

Our curator will be in touch with you if you have been selected for a future opportunity.
