Call for Artists for TF Green Airport and Block Island Airport

“Turbulence” by Fernando Pezzino
RISCA is not accepting applications at this time for the airport galleries.
Check back here on July 1 for more information on the 2024 exhibitions.

Applications to open in late spring for artists for 2024 exhibitions at the Block Island Airport Gallery and GREEN SPACE Gallery at Rhode Island T.F.

The deadline to apply will be Oct. 9, at 11:59 p.m.

Works in all media are considered. GREEN SPACE includes several large walls and open spaces that are particularly suitable for large-scale works. The Block Island Airport Gallery is best suited for modestly sized artworks.

Eligibility: All participating artists must be R.I. residents. No students please. 
Selection: Artists will be selected for the 2023 exhibitions by a review panel that will include practicing artists, arts professionals and community members. Artists included in upcoming exhibitions will receive a $300 stipend for participating in the program.

Note: 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.

GREEN SPACE selects nine artists to exhibit in three group shows per year. Block Island Airport Gallery hosts one-artist exhibitions four 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.
