Propose An Exhibition:

With few exhibiting spaces devoted to contemporary art in the region, the Arts Council of Princeton’s Paul Robeson Center for the Arts serves as a key venue for contemporary art in central New Jersey. Through exhibitions, public art projects, artist-in-residence opportunities, and collaborations with other institutions, the ACP’s exhibitions program engages artists in projects that explore our shared and ever-changing contemporary culture. Through thought-provoking exhibitions and related public programs, the ACP presents projects of broad aesthetic range and social, cultural and political themes relevant to our diverse audience. The goal of the Arts Council of Princeton’s exhibition program is to present exhibitions and related programs that support the Arts Council’s mission of Building Community Through the Arts by:

    • Highlighting the work of local and regional working artists;
    • Coordinating with the ACP’s teaching and multi-disciplinary programs including painting, drawing, ceramics, traditional and digital photography, sculpture, video, performing and literary arts;
    • Presenting exhibitions that are relevant to our community and reflective of our region’s cultural and socio-economic diversity; and
    • Providing related educational programs for elementary, secondary, and college level students as well as for the general public.

Arts Council of Princeton exhibitions, artist talks, and related programs are presented in the Peg and Frank Taplin Gallery and other spaces in and around the Paul Robeson Center including the Michael Graves Terrace for outdoor sculpture and the Solley Theater Lobby. Additional exhibitions and related programs are presented at the Princeton Public Library, where a primary focus is on the work of local artists, and in temporary and permanent public art projects in and around Princeton.

The ACP maintains high professional standards for the presentation of exhibitions. The ACP attempts to boost the careers of deserving emerging and mid-career artists who are often exhibited alongside the work of more established artists. The ACP aims to elevate the overall standards and experience for all exhibited artists and to strengthen their regional and national visibility while providing meaningful art experiences for the Art Council’s multigenerational and multicultural audience. The Arts Council of Princeton is actively seeking regional visual artists for exhibitions in our award winning Taplin Gallery as well as several other venues and spaces. To be considered for future exhibitions or to propose an exhibition, please send a description of the project or idea and links to 10 to 20 work examples, an artist statement and resumé to with both “Visual Artist Opportunities”  and your full name in the subject line. Applicants can expect a confirmation of receipt within one week. Submissions are reviewed every six months and you will be contacted if your proposal is selected.
