Call for Artists: GREEN SPACE 2021 at TF Green Airport and Block Island Airport – Deadline Dec. 15th.

“Turbulence” by Fernando Pezzino.

The GREEN SPACE Gallery program at T.F. Green Airport and Block Island Airport is accepting art submissions for 2021 exhibitions. The gallery program 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.

Works in all media will be considered. Note that GREEN SPACE PVD includes several large walls and open spaces that are particularly suitable for large-scale works.

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

Entry Deadline: December 15, 2021.

Selection: To apply, please submit via this Google Form. Artists will be selected for the 2021 exhibitions by a review panel that will include practicing artists, arts professionals and community members. Artists included in the 2021 exhibitions will receive a $300 stipend for participating in the program.

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.

Note that GREEN SPACE selects nine artists to exhibit in three group shows per year. Block Island Airport hosts one artist exhibitions three times per year. 

If selected, artists agree to suitably frame, wire or otherwise prepare their artwork for display at their own expense. Artwork is hung at the gallery coordinator’s discretion, and the coordinator reserves the right of final selection of artwork and approval of installation. Artwork is not insured by the galleries during exhibition; artists are encouraged to carry their own insurance. Artwork may be listed for sale if desired, and any sales are direct without commission to the galleries.
