The New Gallery (TNG) currently programs two exhibition spaces as well as an artist-in-residence program and various offsite projects. Proposals are accepted on an ongoing basis, although specific calls are issued from time to time. All submissions are adjudicated by our Programming Committee, which is comprised of members of our Board, staff, and professional artists from the local community. Successful applications will be chosen for their congruity with the Gallery’s mandate, artistic merit, critical and conceptual mindfulness, and evidence of the applicant’s ongoing dedication to their career and practice.
