The Locust Grove Estate, is partnering with Barrett Art Center to announce four Solo Show opportunities in 2020-2021.

Each 10-12 week show presents artists with the opportunity to present a solo show of 20-30 artworks in the Transverse Gallery in the Visitor Center at Locust Grove, a National Historic Landmark museum, education center, and nature preserve which attracts over 90,000 visitors annually.

 Locust Grove was the nineteenth-century country estate of Samuel Morse, who, in addition to inventing the telegraph and Morse Code, was an artist and the founder of the National Academy of Design. In the twentieth century, the estate was owned by Poughkeepsie’s prominent Young family, noted collectors of Hudson River School paintings and the founders of the museum.

 Barrett Art Center works with curators from around the globe to bring exemplary contemporary art from international artists to its exhibitions in the Hudson Valley. Our reputation for high-quality exhibitions and programs attracts thousands of art enthusiasts to our 1840s Greek Revival townhouse-turned gallery annually. Arts professionals from Barrett Art Center are part of the curatorial team juroring the shows.


Exhibition Information
 Solo shows are available for 2-D artwork. Please note the galleries are frequented by visitors of all ages, including school groups. Artists’ discretion is requested. 

We encourage artists to develop new works of art for this exhibition opportunity. If selected for a solo show, the images submitted for review do not necessarily have to be among the works exhibited. In an effort to give artists time to prepare, solo shows are being offered now for July 2020 through June 2021. 

Accepted artwork must be properly mounted, framed and ready to hang from a track-type hanging system. 

Artwork may be either for sale or for exhibition only. 

 Terms for sale of artwork: artist receives 75%; commission is 25% 

 Recommended number of works for display is 20-30 pieces, depending on size. 

 Locust Grove reserves the right to not exhibit any artwork that does not meet our display criteria.
