Art Calls Upstream Gallery Exhibition & Membership Opportunities

Upstream Gallery Hastings-On-Hudson, NY, United States

Upstream Gallery

Opportunity Description

U.S. Regional Deadline: December 31, 2024 – Upstream Gallery Welcomes Artist Applications for Membership.

Upstream Gallery is artist-owned and operated, with particular emphasis on quality and community. The gallery embraces all fine arts media and styles. We are located just half an hour north of midtown Manhattan, in a large well lighted storefront space in Hastings on Hudson, NY.

We are currently welcoming membership applications from area artists. Submissions are reviewed each month. New members are voted into the gallery by a majority vote of the existing artist membership after an evaluation of work examined via the applicant’s website and actual examples of art submitted for review to the gallery membership. Member artists are expected to participate in the operation of the gallery, which includes working at the gallery one or two days a month, installing, or taking down shows, helping with our newsletter or numerous other tasks and responsibilities.

Current artist members work in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, collage/assemblage, printmaking, and photography. Many members have shown in a wide variety of venues throughout the United States and Europe.

Membership includes a one person show in one of the two gallery spaces; rotating between the large and small rooms, roughly every 18 to 24 months. In addition, all members are encouraged to participate in 2-3 group exhibitions every year.

The gallery provides public relations and promotion for all group shows, and a monthly newsletter helps promote each of the solo exhibitions as well. The gallery membership can provide guidance and information to exhibiting artists as requested.


Work sold is subject to a 20% commission to the gallery.

Founded in 1991 by artists who came of age in New York during the 50’s and 60’s, Upstream Gallery continues a long tradition of artists presenting their own work, from the independent Impressionist salons and exhibitions of 19th century France to the artist-run galleries of mid-century Manhattan. Our founding artists created a vibrant gathering place where community comes together, celebrating art in many forms, including music, poetry, and performance.
