The A.I.R. Fellowship Program was established in 1993 by former artist member Stephanie Bernheim in order to support underrepresented and emerging women and non-binary artists in New York City. Each year, six artists are awarded a year-long fellowship to develop and exhibit a project at A.I.R. Gallery.


A.I.R. Gallery is currently accepting submissions for the 2024 CURRENTS Exhibition, Free Expression and the Inexpressible, through September 30, 2023. Curated by artist and theorist Aliza Shvarts, this exhibition invites work from artists working across all forms and disciplines who are interrogating the edges of free expression, mining its history, and positing new ways of thinking about what we can and cannot express.

The Arc Project: Humans from Mundane to Mythical

Calling all artists, this is more than just an ordinary portrait show. It’s a visual exploration of creativity and humanity!
Humans make for fascinating subjects. As artists, we start with the simple task of capturing the spirit of being human in our works. We navigate the many challenges -- limitations of media and skill, discomfort, emotional visceral interactions and reactions -- yet we yearn to say something, capturing an essence that sometimes only we can see. This is the point where this exhibit begins -- with human beings in front of us; extracting from life the ordinary and mundane to the fantastical and mythical! All representations are valid ways to celebrate the beautiful arc of our humanity -- that shared experience which celebrates us!

AAP Magazine 30 Shadows

Our 30th printed issue of AAP Magazine will feature the best projects showcasing the theme "SHADOWS".

Mysterious, magical, intense, timeless, sometimes nostalgic... mastering the shadows in photography is an art in itself. It is a story in its own right, a unique form of expression.

Send us a cohesive body of work or portfolio - capturing the poetry and the power of shadows! The subject is totally up to you. Your photos can be in color or black and white, and be landscape, portraiture, street photography or any other genre. Any capture method or process, whether digital or analog, including monochromatic toning, is welcome.

Ephemerality, Juried Exhibition


This juried exhibition will feature artworks that speak to the ephemeral—the fleeting moments in life that are attempted to be captured in art. What moments do we try to capture and want to hold onto? What moments do we address that speak to issues we want to change? As artists, we attempt to create something that speaks to specific moments in time. The world is constantly changing and evolving, but how do we capture that moment or feeling? Is there something that has impacted us, or something we hope to leave an impact on? It is through artwork that we can leave a mark or a trace of ourselves.


McCord Gallery invites artists to apply for the upcoming exhibition "That Face! Portraits Both Human & Animal". Our theme is open to all artists, age 18 or older, who have captured the face of a person or animal in traditional or non-traditional styles. The artistic intention is to capture the subject's unique personality, giving the viewer insight into their character, be it neutral, satirical, celebratory, cultural, aggressive, docile, quirky or humorous.
