SOLO 2017 awards two solo exhibitions, all gallery expenses paid, to two New England artists who have not previously had a solo show in a commercial gallery (group shows, universities, libraries, etc. do not disqualify). All media are welcome.
Ideally, these 5 jpgs represent a recent, coherent body of work. Please prepare your materials carefully before submitting; no revisions are accepted. Applications not accepted by email, postal, CD or any other means.
Finalists will be asked to bring 3-5 pieces of current work, representing their proposed exhibition, to the gallery in early November for review by the juror. Winners will be posted December 1 on the gallery website.
The two winning exhibitions will be held in January, 2017.
