Call for Artists

Sylvia White Gallery maintains a museum quality exhibition calendar from September-June.  All of the work we show/sell is on loan from other galleries, museums, collectors, or in our private inventory. Occasionally, we also invited noted art professionals to guest curate exhibitions. We do not represent artists on an ongoing basis, exhibit emerging artists, or consider artist submissions during this time period.  However, each summer and winter, we offer an exhibition opportunity to all emerging, mid career or established  artists interested in applying. 

Please join our mailing list to be notified about upcoming opportunities HERE
