Is New York considered part of New England?
No, New York is part of the Mid-Atlantic states. The six New England states are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Do I need to be currently living in New England?
Your primary residence needs to be in New England between the application deadline and January 31 - the end of the exhibition.

What expenses are paid for the winners?
All gallery expenses: postcard, exhibition fee, reception etc. The winners must still pay for the materials and creation of their artwork, as well as all travel or shipping costs.

How do artists in video or time-based media submit?
Apply online, and include online links to your work in the Artist Statement box. You may submit jpgs of stills or screen shots.

How do artists know their submission was received?
You will receive a thank you email from Submittable.

What kind of work should the submitted images represent?
Ideally, the online jpgs are from one recent, coherent body of work, which represents the exhibition you would show in January if selected. (They should also reflect the work you would bring in as a finalist.)

Please use this format for the jpg name: 01_YourLastName_ArtworkTitle.
