A.I.R. Gallery’s National Artists Program was founded in 1981 to expand A.I.R.’s feminist mission to communities outside of New York City. The National Members form a network of care, support, and opportunity through collaboration and the forging of alliances.

During the program, artists exhibit annually in a curated group show and can apply without fees to juried exhibitions hosted at A.I.R. All National Artists are represented on the gallery website, have access to the gallery’s extensive mailing list, and have the opportunity to be involved in artist-led events, including group studio visits.

Applicants must live in the United States but outside of New York City, must not have previously been an A.I.R National Artist, and be willing to commit for four-years.

Applications will be reviewed in July and selections will be announced late August.

Be a woman or non-binary artist.

Reside outside of New York City, but within the United States.

Exhibition opportunities: Every member in the program exhibits annually in a curated group show.

Juried Exhibitions: In addition to the curated National Members Exhibition, artists may apply without fee to the following juried exhibitions: Generations, the Biennial exhibition series, and the Currents exhibition series.

Solo Show: after two years a National Artist can apply to the Exhibition Committee for a solo show.

Access to fiscal sponsorship when requested for grants and donations requiring 501(c)(3) status.
