River Arts has been instrumental in my success as a photographer. From my very first exhibit the staff has provided excellent guidance along with continual encouragement and support. River Arts is truly a community asset.” – Artist/Instructor/Participant 2016


“River Works 3” Group Exhibit – Call to Artists

The Gallery at River Arts, located in the Robert C. Folley Performance Hall on the second floor, is currently accepting submissions of work for its third annual group exhibition.

The River Arts Invitational 2017 exhibition theme is “River Works 3.” All accepted juried work will be shown at the center from August 24th through October 20th with an opening reception on September 14th.

While the exhibition theme, River Works, derives it’s name from the Lamoille River which flows through Morrisville, it is not exclusively about rivers and lakes. The theme has as much to do about water’s visual effects and its power to inspire. Artists’ works will be considered which relate to water in all its forms as a natural force and influence in our world.

We invite artists to submit images of their work and a brief statement or proposal. Unless special arrangements are made in advance, all work should be ready to hang with our cable system and should be at least 20” x 20”. Submissions are due by June 15, 2017 and notifications will be made by July 1st.

Submission Requirements:

1) Artist’s Statement or proposal – up to 2 pages maximum
2) CV – 1 page
3) Images or Video:
Images – 5 high quality JPG images having a minimum of 2000 pixels for
the shortest dimension. Include description, title, size, medium.
Video – Up to 3 video clips of a maximum of 5 minutes. Use links to artist’s website, YouTube or Vimeo.

Electronic submissions only to: [email protected] River Arts will not accept submissions by mail or in person.
