Art Gallery Information
Note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 shutdown of Blackstone River Theatre activities, we will not be scheduling any gallery shows until we have a viable re-opening date. Watch this page for details.
Blackstone River Theatre currently books visual artists for six-week shows in the BRT upper and lower theatre lobbies from mid-September through May (usually 20-36 pieces depending on size). We are now reviewing artwork for the Winter 2021 season and beyond; showings are usually arranged 4-6 months in advance. Artists must first contact Russell Gusetti to express interest and then will be asked to show a portfolio or e-mail current samples of work to be considered. All BRT exhibits are coordinated and hung by Pat and George Sargent. Artwork or visual artists with a connection to the Blackstone River Valley or musical themes are preferred but not mandatory. We are currently only displaying two-dimensional work as a rule.
Artwork CAN be sold by the artist with no commission fee taken by BRT. Our sole goal is to have the work of local visual artists combine with our performing arts programming to enhance our audience's total experience. The artist is SOLELY responsible for drop-off/pick-up of work, matting, framing, and taking down their show and for all costs and insurances associated with hanging their artwork in an exhibit space.
BRT will send out a press release with representative image 10 days before your show hangs so please email a biography/artist's statement/show info and a high-res image (200 dpi jpeg please at 5 x 7 inches) in a timely manner.
