2021 Spring Open Call

PeepSpace is thrilled to announce our 3rd OPEN CALL opportunity! No Fee

Application Deadline: January 23, 2021 

PeepSpace in Tarrytown, NY is committed to maintaining no fee opportunities for emerging and established artists. However, as an artist-run space, we humbly request your donations. 

As artists and curators you are aware that the standard fees for open calls typically range from $10-$50. PeepSpace needs your support to continue to offer opportunities for artists for whom fees may be a hindrance.

As you consider the open call, and if you have the means, please consider including a donation with your proposal.  A donation of whatever you can afford would make a difference in the success of our new gallery and support of our programming.  No donation is too small. Your donation will not affect the consideration of your proposal.

Please make your donation here: PeepSpace PayPal Donation
