Apply for a Solo or Group Show

Whether you are interested in applying for a solo exhibition at the Hoyt Center for the Arts  or in gaining exposure through our offsite location, please take a minute to review the following guidelines before applying:


While not necessarily limited to artists age 21+ from the Mid-Atlantic region,  preference is given to proposals stemming from Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware and Washington D.C under the following conditions:  

Applying to the Hoyt Center: Selection for exhibition on our main campus is competitive.  Artists are typically established and have prior exhibition experience. You must be able to demonstrate mature talent with a consistent body of work.  While most media will be considered, video and installation are discouraged due to the historic nature of the facilities.

Applying to The Confluence: The Confluence is a popular community gathering space featuring a cafe, stage, free library, meeting rooms and gallery in downtown New Castle, PA.  The  gallery typically showcases local art by local artists living within a 50 mile radius of the city.  While most media will be considered, video and installation are discouraged  due to limitations of space.
