Interested in exhibiting your artwork at Locust Grove? Now is your chance! From January through March we will be accepting applications for solo shows in our Transverse Gallery.
Locust Grove was the nineteenth-century country estate of Samuel Morse who, in addition to being the inventor of the telegraph and Morse Code, was an artist and the founder of the National Academy of Design. In the twentieth century, the estate was owned byPoughkeepsie’s prominent Young family, noted collectors of Hudson River School paintings and the founders of the museum at Locust Grove. In honor of the Estate’s rich history in the visual arts, Locust Grove annually presents solo show exhibitions.
Submissions on CD or DVD are juried by a panel of art professionals and museum staff. Selected artists will be offered a solo show in the estate’s elegant Museum Pavilion during calendar year 2016.
