Call for Artists – New York State
2022 – 2023 Exhibition Season
This is a juried, New York State open call for art exhibition proposals. All mediums, themes, and styles will be considered. Artists may propose solo or collaborative projects to be displayed as monthly gallery exhibitions. Individual proposals may also be considered for entry into a curated group show, as chosen by CANO. While artists may make specific proposals within the three galleries of the Wilber Mansion, it is not guaranteed that all aspects of the proposal will be accepted. Artists who have previously had a show at CANO should wait 2 years before applying again.
Jurors for the 2022–2023 season are:
Nancy Callahan, Oneonta
Jenny Kemp, Troy
Keith Simpson, Alfred
