The Block Island Times

Artists sought

Sep 04, 2013

The Rhode Island State Council On the Arts is looking for Rhode Island artists to exhibit at The Airport Gallery located on Block Island. Artists working in all media are encouraged to submit their work for consideration.

Work in all media will be considered. The Block Island Airport Gallery includes opportunities for exhibiting indoors and outdoors. Green space includes several large walls and open spaces that are particularly well suited to large scale works.

All participating artists must be Rhode Island residents. Students are not eligible. The deadline is Oct. 1, 2013.

Artists will be selected for the 2014 exhibitions by a review panel that will include practicing artists, arts professionals and community members. Artists included in the 2014 exhibitions will receive a $100 stipend for participating in the program.

Artists may apply online. All submitted work will be considered for both gallery locations unless applicants indicate an interest in only one of the galleries. Please note that larger work is better suited to green space while smaller scale pieces are best for The Block Island Airport Gallery.

To apply, please email either of the following to

A link to an up-to-date website that includes images with captions (title, year, media, size), a current curriculum vitae and artist's statement. Artists can also link to a Flickr page with 10 images complete with captions (title, year, media, size) and attach to the email a current cv and artist's statement.
