Barrett Art Center offers opportunities for established and emerging artists to exhibit their work in our historic gallery setting.  In 2018, BAC will host four (4) solo or group shows in our Crenson Gallery, held in conjunction with exhibitions in the main galleries. 

Eligibility: Barrett Art Center seeks solo/group show proposals for shows in the second-floor Crenson Gallery.  Drawing, painting, pastel, printmaking, photography, sculpture, fiber, mixed-media works are eligible. This call presents a unique opportunity for solo or collaborative shows, as well as installation works.  We invite proposals of both contemporary and traditional pieces that create a visually-compelling complement, or counterpoint, to Barrett Art Center’s 1840s Greek Revival townhouse interiors. 

 Four proposals will be chosen to exhibit in the Crenson Gallery for shows in 2018. Submissions will be reviewed by Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator, New Museum. Criteria for review will include technical and artistic execution, a cohesive body of work or coherent theme, and overall artistic merit.  Gallery size and structural capacity will also play a role in submission selection. 

For Crenson Gallery layout, BAC website Notification of decisions will be sent to applicants on or about Tuesday, February 14, 2018, via email.  

Artists selected to present Crenson Gallery Solo Shows are required to pay a gallery fee to support the upkeep of the building.
