9th Annual Small Works Exhibition at the Manhattan Borough Presidents Office

January 9, 2018 – January 31, 2017
Reception: Tuesday, January 9, 5 pm - 7 pm
Manhattan Borough President's Office
1 Centre Street in lower Manhattan
New York, NY 10007 

Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, December 12 at midnight.
All artists selected for the exhibition will be notified by Saturday December 16 via email. 

Eligibility
Current League students and members in good standing are eligible to apply.

Requirements

  • Any 2-dimensional artwork that has never been shown at Manhattan Borough President’s Office
  • Size must not exceed 12" x 12" INCLUDING FRAME
  • Everyone MUST complete and submit an online application by Tuesday, December 12.
  • Neither photography nor giclée prints will be accepted
  • Artwork should be ready to hang with the proper hanging hooks, d-rings, clips or wires. Without these, your work can't be included. Moreover, the MBPO gallery no longer allows nails or screws in their walls. Artwork at the MBPO will be suspended using the "STAS smartspring" picture rail system, not nails, so all artwork must have hardware that permits the small metal hook on the hanging system to hold the artwork balanced near the center top of the piece. (Check how you've done by balancing your work on a single finger. The work should hang perpendicular to the floor. If you fix your wire across the center back or even 2/3 of the way down, your piece will tilt forward & downward, away from the wall, when we hang it). Sometimes artists submit stretched canvases with no wires or hardware on the back, hoping that we can hang them from a nail in the wall. We can't! 
  • Works on paper cannot be loose. 
  • Chosen artists will be responsible for dropping off artwork to the League before 9am January 8, 2018 (and picking it up from the show on January 31 or from the League after February 1)
  • Insurance for artwork provided by the artist or must be waived.
  • There will be a 30% commission on works sold. Sales tax will be paid through The Art Students League of New York.
  • ONE APPLICATION ENTRY PER ARTIST (One or two images per application). 
  • Submit only jpg images and label them with your name, the title of the work, the year of creation, size, the medium, and the price: Last_First_Title_Year_HeightxWidth_Acryliconpaper_150.jpg You must change the file names yourself. When you complete the application, double-check to make sure the image names (the part before ".jpg" on your picture files) are labeled correctly & fix it if not.

Exhibition Outreach Application

Open Enrollment

For more than 141 years, the Art Students League of New York has been committed to promoting the art of its emerging artists and members. To further our mission, in July 2006 the League initiated the new Exhibition Outreach program bringing the work of our emerging artists to exhibitions in various venues throughout the New York metropolitan region.

In our tenth year the Exhibition Outreach program continues to reach out to new venues and students. So far we have provided more than 500 students with over 95 exhibition opportunities to display their work and allowed the public to see and appreciate the quality of these talented painters, sculptors, printmakers, and draftsmen.

Once students submit their images and documents, their information will be added to the Exhibition Outreach Database. Throughout the year, the Exhibition Outreach Program mounts exhibitions in NYC-area corporate, medical and public spaces. Each exhibition lasts anywhere from 3, 6, to 9 months. Once the Outreach team finds the right match for a venue, we send digital albums of the submitted students' work as a proposal.  Upon  approval by the venue partners, we will contact the chosen artists and walk them through the process of participating in an exhibition. 

Students will experience preparing their work, including photographing, framing , wrapping in sufficient protection and delivering their artwork to the location, keeping a record of their artwork, submitting their latest biography, resume and artist statement. We ask students to present themselves and their work on a professional level. The Exhibition Outreach program not only allows students to experience and understand how to be a professional  but also helps students to build their resume.   

The Art Students League of New York and its venue partners are not insured to cover more than $5,000.

Eligibility:

• Open to Art Students League students CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN CLASSES.
• Previously accepted exhibitors are eligible to re-apply but must fill out the "update" application and submit new artwork with this link:. 

Questions please contact Renee Larson rlarson@artstudentsleague.org
