Eligible media include drawing, painting, pastel, printmaking, photography, sculpture, fiber, mixed media works, et al.  We invite proposals of both contemporary and traditional works that create a visually compelling complement, or counterpoint, to Barrett Art Center’s 1830s Greek Revival townhouse interiors.

Rentals are available on a limited basis; approval process is ongoing.  Rental Applications will be reviewed by Barrett staff and the BAC Exhibitions Committee.  Approval criteria include artwork content and quality, gallery space availability, and relevance to the exhibition goals of BAC.  Artists may rent in either Spring or Fall, but not both.

Note: Changes in gallery availability will occur as galleries are booked.  Please call  for up-to-date information on availability.
