RISCA is accepting applications for artists for 2022 exhibitions at the Block Island Airport Gallery and GREEN SPACE Gallery at Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport. The galleries are a partnership with the RI Airport Corporation (RIAC), and the entry deadline is Sunday, Oct. 10, at 11:59 p.m.
The call for artists will consider artists who work in all media and applicants must be Rhode Island residents. No students, please.
The GREEN SPACE Gallery includes several large walls and open spaces that are suitable for large-scale works. The gallery selects nine artists to exhibit in three group shows per year. The Block Island Airport Gallery is best suited for smaller scale works and hosts single artist exhibitions, four times per year.
The selection of artists will be by a review panel, which will include practicing artists, arts professionals and community members. Artists included in the 2022 exhibitions will receive a $300 stipend for participating in the program. Artists who have exhibited previously at one of the galleries are ineligible for new consideration for a period of two years. RISCA encourages artists who have applied in the past and have not been selected to apply again.

If selected, artists agree to suitably frame, wire or otherwise prepare their artwork for display at their own expense. Artwork is hung at gallery coordinator’s discretion, and gallery 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.
