NARROWSBURG, N.Y. — The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) has put out a call for artists to exhibit at its gallery in 2019. The deadline for submissions is Saturday, Feb. 3. Beginning this year, DVAA is moving to an online submission platform for its exhibitions. If you need help, contact the gallery director, Rocky Pinciotti, at 845-252-7576 or email@example.com with questions or to schedule a tutorial. There is no submission fee. DVAA’s Visual Arts program includes solo, two-person, group, and curated exhibitions. In addition, DVAA produces pop-up exhibitions, hosts artist talks, and related programs throughout the year. The exhibition program features high-quality work by emerging and professional artists with an emphasis on those who live and work full or part-time in the Upper Delaware River, Mid-Hudson, or Catskill regions. All media and styles are welcome, as are installations and proposals by curators. Each year following an open call for entries, DVAA convenes a jury of three to five visual arts professionals to select the exhibitions for the following year. DVAA facilitates a “blind-jurying process,” meaning that all applicants are represented by a number and their names are withheld. Jurying is based solely on the projected images of artwork, so it’s important to submit consistent, high-quality images. DVAA assembles a new panel of jurors each year, so artists are strongly encouraged to re-apply if their work is not selected. DVAA will notify applicants via email by March 31, 2018. DVAA’s galleries are located at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance at 37 Main St. in Narrowsburg, N.Y. Open year-round, DVAA hosts over a dozen exhibitions annually and is free and open to the public, Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Alliance Gallery is located on DVAA’s first floor, and the Loft Gallery is located on the second floor. DVAA’s exhibitions and related programs are supported in part by the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
