SOLO SERIES REVIEW 2021/22

Gallery Exhibitions | Fall 2021 -Spring 2022

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 (November 5 – December 27), Winter (January/March), or Spring (April/June) 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.
