CALL FOR ART FOR OUR 2023/2024 SOLO SERIES IS NOW OPEN!
Our Solo Series offers artists the opportunity to show a body of work in an individual gallery. Over the course of the year, 9-12 artists will present an exhibition of their own design in one of Alverthorpe Manor’s historic rooms.
Artists will be selected for a solo exhibition in either our Fall (September – October), Winter (January – February), or Spring (April – May) exhibition season. Each year, AAC’s exhibition program features national and regional artists
in our gallery spaces, as well as related programs such as lectures, public forums, and workshops designed to involve audiences in the experience.
Applicants will also be considered for an exhibition in our Community Arts Gallery, which highlights artists whose work aims to create conversation and engagement around local cultural and historical concerns.
View our Exhibition Archives to see past exhibitions and artists selected at AAC.
