Curatorial Opportunities

Exhibition proposals are reviewed annually by Byrdcliffe’s Exhibition Committee. Proposals in a broad range of media are encouraged and should present work that engages questions of theoretical and critical relevance to contemporary artistic practice. In addition, exhibitions of historic merit that relate to the arts and crafts movement are considered and bi-annually, an outdoor sculpture exhibition is presented at Byrdcliffe’s historic White Pines property.


Call for 2025 Exhibition Proposals

Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild presents works by contemporary artists as well as works of historic merit that pertain to the history of the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, located in the center of Woodstock. The gallery occupies a large space with over 12-foot-high ceilings and 130-running-feet of wall space. Exhibitions are on view between 6-7 weeks, depending on the season. Curators are invited to submit proposals for thematic group exhibits of contemporary or historic art and solo exhibitions; curators may not submit proposals that include their own work.
