The GREEN SPACE Gallery at T.F. Green Airport is accepting art submissions for their 2017 exhibitions. The gallery program is a partnership between RISCA and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation that promotes outstanding work by artists living and working in Rhode Island. The spaces will present art to an ever-changing audience of local, national and international travelers.
Works in all media will be considered. Note that GREEN SPACE includes several large walls and open spaces that are particularly suitable for large-scale works.
Eligibility: All participating artists must be RI residents. No students please.
Entry Deadline: October 1, 2016
Selection: Artists will be selected for the 2017 exhibitions by a review panel that will include practicing artists, arts professionals and community members. Artists included in the 2017 exhibitions will receive a $300 stipend for participating in the program.
Artists are encouraged to apply to the gallery, even if they have applied in previous years and not been selected. Artists who have exhibited previously are ineligible for new consideration for a period of two years.

Artwork is hung at gallery coordinator's discretion, and gallery coordinator reserves the right of final selection of artwork and approval of installation.
