The Providence Preservation Society invites artists to propose new works related to PPS’s Most Endangered Properties of 2018. The Most Endangered Properties program engages the public in thinking about the future of significant historic buildings, landscapes, structures, and neighborhoods. With “Sites and Stories,” we aim to expand this engagement through the work of committed Rhode Island-based artists, involving the community in the re-building of narratives around the human beings who inhabited these important properties. Artists and artist teams will have the opportunity to engage with scholars, historic preservationists and communities, interpreting endangered sites, drawing out hidden histories, and provoking essential public conversations.

Proposals are due by 11:59 PM on Friday, June 15, 2018. Open to Rhode Island artists only.
There are three days left to submit your proposal for the 107th CAA Annual Conference in New York, February 13-16, 2019. The deadline for proposals is April 27, 2018. The submissions are rolling in, but we still want to hear from pre-modern scholars and artists practicing pre-modern methods. We want your submissions! The CAA Annual Conference thrives when we have submissions from a wide range of professionals in the visual arts.
Join your colleagues and fellow professionals in creating the programming for the largest gathering of art historians, artists, designers, curators, arts administrators, museum professionals, and others in the visual arts.
Deadline for submissions: April 27, 2018
The Annual Conference Committee members review over 800 submissions each year. They take into account subject areas and themes that arise from accepted proposals to present as broad and diverse a program as possible. The Committee selects between 250-300 sessions for each conference and it must, at times, make difficult decisions on submissions of high merit.
If you are a lapsed CAA member, April is the time to renew with a 25% off discount on your annual membership.
More information on Submission Types and Key Dates can be found on the CAA website and on the submissions portal.

Call to Artists & Curators
The gallery space at the Jamestown Arts Center has become one of the most exciting places to experience art and design in southern Rhode Island. Because of its large size and high ceiling height, the space is unique and lends itself to a variety of exhibits.
If you are interested in showing your work or curating a show, you must submit a proposal to the exhibition committee. We strongly urge you to visit the space first so that you understand its possibilities and limitations. We are also very interested in collaborating with other spaces and organizations, particularly outdoors in Jamestown.
The gallery is currently booked through December of 2019. The deadline for submissions for 2020 is May 1, 2018.
Proposals should include the following:
- A description of the exhibition, including its objective and why it should be shown at the Jamestown Arts Center.
- Possible and best case time frames for the exhibition. The usual duration of an exhibition is 4-6 weeks.
- Artist’s or curator’s statement(s), and/or other support material, reviews, résumés, exhibition history etc.
- A list of artists participating, if applicable.
- Links to relevant website(s) if available.
- A selection of high-quality digital images of the artwork to be shown, with titles, dimensions, and dates. Can be emailed or sent on cd.
- Price range of the artwork, if it is for sale. Note: that the JAC will take a 35% commission if work is sold while at the arts center.
- List of costs the JAC can expect, beyond reasonable gallery maintenance and opening expenses.
- Description of educational programming that could be connected to this exhibit- artists’ or curators’ talks, workshops, films, classes, field trips etc.
We are a multi-disciplinary facility:
Please note the gallery space is also used for monthly film screenings, theatre productions, concerts, JAC talks, and other events. All sculpture and installations must be movable to accommodate other programming.
