The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is taking submissions from local artists for gallery space at TF Green and the Block Island airport.

An airport might not be the first venue that comes to mind when one thinks of an art gallery. But both the Block Island Airport and TF Green have set aside space to highlight the work of Rhode Island artists. Now the state’s arts council is looking for work to fill those spaces next year.

RISCA says displaying your work at an airport means it’s exposed to a constantly changing audience passing through the terminals. RISCA is looking for works in all media, and says there’s room on large walls and open spaces for bigger pieces. To qualify artists must be Rhode Island residents, the deadline is October 1st.
