Calls for Art

Providence Mayor’s Gallery–call closes 2/15/2016 (m)

Elected Members of ALRI are invited to submit entries for consideration to exhibit in a new gallery space outside the office of Mayor Jorge Elorza at Providence City Hall.

For Elected Members of Art League Rhode Island

ALRI Exhibit in the Mayor’s Office Gallery of Providence City Hall

Exhibit dates:

  • March 1-Aug 31, 2016 (works of two to three artists)
  • Sept 1-Feb 28, 2017 (works of two to three artists)

Art League Rhode Island (ALRI) has partnered with the City of Providence to create a third City Hall gallery in the administrative space that leads to the personal office of Mayor Jorge Elorza. Approximately 12-15 pieces will be selected by a member of the Mayor’s staff and the ALRI selection committee.

Local governments, such as the City of Providence, offer organizations like ALRI a vantage point from which to engage the public and enrich the community. This collaboration is the latest example of how ALRI can build platforms and partnerships to advance the League’s mission.

After installation, a reception will coincide with art exhibition openings at City Hall’s two other galleries. There will be a photo opportunity with Mayor Elorza, press conference, and local and state media coverage. Look for a reception announcement soon.

Submit 3 – 5 different works. Work submitted for consideration should be two-dimensional, no larger than 48″ on any side, original, created in the last four years, and appropriate to viewers of all ages. Reprints or work found to be copied from copyrighted work will not be hung. All work must be exhibition ready to install with the appropriate hardware. Framing should be consistent in style. No saw tooth hangers or clips. No dark-colored mats. Work that does not adhere to the guidelines will not be considered. Include 3-5  jpg images, 300DPI, labeled ARTIST’S LASTNAME:TITLE OF PIECE.jpg. Attach your artist statement, brief bio, and a link to your website if you have one.

No later than FEBRUARY 15, 2016, please send your email of interest and all attachments to with “Mayor’s Office Gallery” in the subject line.
