The Everson
CNY Artist Initiative

The CNY Artist Initiative is a community exhibition program that builds upon the Everson Museum of Art’s ongoing support of artists in the CNY region. It is intended to showcase the talented and vibrant arts community in this area and its contributions to our cultural well-being.

The Artist Initiative will accept submissions bi-yearly and select six artists annually to display their work in solo exhibitions at the Museum. Selections will be based on the innovative quality of the work, how the work aligns with the Museum’s mission, and its relevance to the community.

Calls for community exhibition proposals are shared via email and the Everson’s social media accounts. Please be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Submissions are being accepted now for 2023 exhibitions! The deadline to be considered is June 30, 2022. Click here to learn more.
