Call to Artists


The Schenectady County Historical Society invites local/regional emerging and established artists to submit samples of their work for exhibition in Mabee Farm’s art gallery. All 2D mediums are welcome, as are small 3D pieces. Both members and non-members are encouraged to submit.

Exhibitions will be located in the Van Schaick gallery on the first floor of the Franchere Education Center at Mabee Farm Historic Site in Rotterdam Junction, NY. Each exhibition will be on view for 2-4 months. All proposed artwork must be ready to hang and wired. SCHS will distribute and provide selected artists with promotional materials, and will host an opening reception for each exhibition in the series.

Interested artists should prepare a proposal which includes:

1. Artist’s statement
2. Images of proposed artwork, in the form of JPG, PDF, PNG, etc.
3. CV or resume
