Call for Submissions - It's Elementary

Founded in 1972, A.I.R. Gallery is the first artist-run, not-for-profit gallery for women artists in the United States. Each year we partner with a number of public schools in an effort to give students an opportunity to interact with artists in a gallery setting.

In addition, this year we are looking forward to our first open call for kindergarten through 5th grade students to share their most creative art works in an exhibition entitled "It's Elementary".

This exhibition will be on view from November 17, 2016 through December 18, 2016 with an opening reception on November 17th from 6-8pm at A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
