Kingston Gallery is seeking at least two new artist members this fall. The gallery is governed and run by dues-paying, exhibiting artist-members and showcases a diverse range of contemporary art in a mutually supportive environment that encourages experimentation and growth. Gallery exhibitions receive attention in both print and online publications including Art New England, ArtScope, Big, Red & Shiny, Boston Globe, The Weekly Dig, as well as on our Facebook page and blog, Thinking About Art Out Loud.
Full gallery members are offered a solo show every two to three years in the Main gallery and a solo show in the Members’ gallery (a small space for new or experimental work) in alternate years. Membership responsibilities include attendance at monthly meetings, staffing the gallery once per month, helping with the ongoing running of the gallery and dues of $110/month. (A one-time commitment fee of $200 is payable upon acceptance as a member.)
We welcome artists living and working in Greater Boston to apply for membership. Membership is quite competitive, with new artist-members being selected by a majority vote.
All applications must include:
- 10 jpegs — 72 dpi, less than 1 MB (15 if details or installation shots are included) numbered to correspond with:
- identification sheet listing title, media, dimensions and date completed for each work
- artist’s statement
Submissions can be made electronically in two ways:
