G53 ALT Exhibit Space
NEW PLATFORM TO PROMOTE LOCAL ARTISTS
For 115 years, Gallery 53 has been dedicated to keeping art alive in Meriden! With monthly exhibits, a permanent collection, a year-round artisan gift shop and ongoing classes in our second-floor studio, every inch of our 53 Colony Street headquarters is jam-packed with art! And while our monthly themed exhibits attract more than 30 artists and our gifts shop represents 233 artisans, we still look to broaden our support for local artists, particularly those creating cutting-edge and innovative work. Our latest venture, G53 ALT, seeks to give these fresh voices a platform by exhibiting their work in our new alternative exhibit space.
WHAT IS G53 ALT?
G53 ALT is a streetside exhibit space on Colony Street in Meriden. Located on the first floor of 24 Colony Street, directly across from the Meriden Train Station, the space features rotating exhibits by local artists. Exhibiting artists are also promoted on the Gallery’s website and social media.
Artist who are interested in exhibiting can submit the application below. The Gallery 53 Board of Directors reviews applications and accepts artists to exhibit based on available space and dates. Priority is given to Meriden-based artists and regional artists producing innovative work. We will also set aside space for talented local students and G53 member artists. In keeping with the alternative exhibit space theme, we will consider work that is matted, framed or even unframed, as well as oversize pieces. We will also consider mounted or matted giclée prints of original work.
