Curtis Gallery, New Canaan Library
Entry Deadline: Aug. 30
The Art Committee of the Curtis Gallery of the New Canaan Library is looking to showcase wonderful art in their gallery and is calling for submissions.
The Curtis Gallery’s auspicious beginnings date to 1955, when a few friends of the New Canaan Library arranged to borrow thirty contemporary pieces by twenty-five American and European Artists, and mounted the Library’s first exhibition. Its walls were filled by the works of Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Helen Frankenthaler, Roy Lichtenstein, Alexander Calder, Joseph Albers, Kenneth Nolan, Ad Reinhardt, Raoul Dufy and George Rouault. The gallery was formally inaugurated in 1980 to commemorate the life of H. Pelham Curtis, a financier and philanthropist with a passion for the arts. The Library has continually held shows from that time forward.
Call for works:
2020 Shows- 8 week shows beginning January 2020, final dates TBD
These shows can be solo or dual which is up to the discretion of the committee. There is no size limit on works for these shows. All mediums except sculpture may be submitted.
