Solo Exhibitions

2017/2018 Solo Exhibition Awards - Supporting Emerging Artists

The application period for the Fall 2017 & Spring 2018 Solo Exhibition Awards has passed. The application period for the Fall 2018 & Spring 2019 Exhibition Awards will launch in November, 2017.
By initiating an entirely new, expansive program, we will assist emerging artists as they grow professionally and explore their media. Through a juried process, artists will be chosen for solo exhibitions that provide them with increased gallery experience and promotion. The Peeler Peacock takes this a step further by arranging a structured mentorship between the emerging artist and an experienced artist that includes vital critique and support. Finally, the program provides a stipend to the artist to offset production costs, and an honorarium to the mentors in gratitude for their time. The Peeler Peacock will serve as a primary venue of artistic and professional growth for emerging artists in the Southern Finger Lakes.
Two solo shows will occur every year. Each award includes Solo Exhibition in The Peeler Peacock Gallery, pairing with a mentoring artist for support and critique, a $500 stipend to help offset production fees, and promotion, marketing, and opening reception events.
