While AVA’s Exhibition Committee accepts and reviews proposals on a rolling basis, our exhibitions are also comprised of solicited artists and traveling exhibitions.  Please be aware the AVA’s exhibition schedule is planned at least a year in advance and that we may not respond immediately due to time constraints and volume of submissions.  You will receive a follow-up letter in the mail after the review process is complete. Please note that while we do not require a fee to submit artwork, artists selected for an exhibition are asked to become AVA members and contribute towards the cost of the exhibition card printing and mailing. We are not accepting curatorial proposals at this time.


If you have any further questions or if your proposal may differ from the above outline, please contact AVA’s Exhibition Director, Margaret Jacobs, by phone 603.448.3117, or by email:
