The JAC is a multi-disciplinary visual and performing arts space that hosts dynamic events throughout the year.
The Jamestown Arts Center is accepting exhibition proposals for 2020!
The gallery is currently booked through December of 2019.
The deadline for submissions for 2020 is May 1, 2018.
Please email proposals to Exhibition Director Karen Conway at firstname.lastname@example.org
The gallery space at the Jamestown Arts Center has become one of the most exciting places to experience art and design in southern Rhode Island. Because of its large size and high ceiling height, the space is unique and lends itself to a variety of exhibits.
If you are interested in showing your work or curating a show, you must submit a proposal to the exhibition committee. We strongly urge you to visit the space first so that you understand its possibilities and limitations. We are also very interested in collaborating with other spaces and organizations, particularly outdoors in Jamestown.
The gallery is currently booked through December of 2019. The deadline for submissions for 2020 is May 1, 2018.
Proposals should include the following:
Please note the gallery space is also used for monthly film screenings, theatre productions, concerts, JAC talks, and other events. All sculpture and installations must be movable to accommodate other programming.
Classical music as played by the incredible talents of the Heifetz International Music Institute! This program is an amazing opportunity for the region to experience world-class musicians in a meaningful way and in an intimate setting.
JAC is thrilled to announce our May 2018 classical music residency in partnership with the acclaimed Heifetz International Music Institute. This program, which began in October 2013, will include an in-school educational component in addition to musicales in local homes, and a public concert at the JAC. The residency and public concert are incredible opportunities for the region to experience world-class musicians in a meaningful way and in an intimate setting. It is a unique opportunity for audiences, young music students and community members throughout Newport County and beyond to experience the incredible talents of some of the most accomplished young artists from the Heifetz International Music Institute.
For this ninth residency, the musicians will spend a week in Jamestown. During their time in RI, they will give presentations and small group workshops at local schools. The musicians will also have the opportunity to perform several musicales in private homes and provide an open dress rehearsal to groups from senior living facilities and mental health and social services agencies.

Children’s Birthday Party – Choose a Theme!
Children’s Birthday Parties include an art project led by a JAC instructor. Choose a theme and we’ll do the rest! Themes are:
Create a unique owl mask out of recycled materials and decorate it any way you’d like using paint, markers, glitter and paper feathers!
Create a beautiful diorama full of colorful shells while learning all about the different plants and animals that live in our ocean! Fun and educational!
Spend some time collecting natural materials like sticks, stones and leaves in the nearby park, and return to the JAC to build your very own Fairy House!
Create colorful little dragons out of recycled materials that can sit on your shoulder or breathe fire, and decorate your dragon any way you’d like!
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
This party’s all about transportation: draw and build cars, trucks, planes or boats using cardboard and other fun recycled materials!
