Information for Artists about Exhibiting at Russell Library

PLEASE NOTE: Because of COVID-19 restrictions, we are not having in-house exhibits at this time. We are scheduling virtual exhibits on our website. Please contact for more information.

Eligibility. Artists living and working in Connecticut are eligible to apply, with priority being given to those living and working in the Middletown area. First-time exhibitors, individuals, and groups are welcome. Images of some of the work you intend to show must be submitted for review. See the application for details.

Guidelines: Once the Russell Library has agreed to provide a virtual exhibit for your work, we will ask you to submit your work as .png files of high quality. You must upload your images to Dropbox and provide the library with a link so that we may download the images. Each image must contain the name of the artist, the title of the work, a brief description (if desired), and the price of the piece if your work is for sale. Please include an email so that interested parties may contact you. The library is not responsible for sales.

The library will not archive the show. It will only be available for the agreed duration. Shows can run from 1-2 months. We will provide you with a link to the show before it goes live so that you may check the show for errors.
