The Locust Grove Estate is partnering with Barrett Art Center to announce four Solo Show opportunities in 2022-2023
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 founded by philanthropist Annette Young who created a not-for-profit museum to preserve her inherited family homes and art collections for the benefit of the public. Through exhibits of contemporary art we seek to continue the Young family’s support of the arts into a new century.
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.
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 Spring 2022 – Spring 2023.
Accepted artwork must be properly mounted, framed and ready to hank from a track-type hanging system.
Artwork may be either for sale of 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.
