A.I.R. Gallery is a permanent exhibition space that supports an open exchange of ideas and risk–taking by women artists in order to provide support and visibility. As an artist-run organization, A.I.R. fosters involvement through multiple tiers of representation: New York, National, Adjunct, and Alumnae Artists. A self-directed governing body, the organization is alternative to mainstream institutions and thrives on the network of active participants. Collaborations and partnerships with outside organizations and individuals ensure a platform informed by a diverse community and representative of broad views. A.I.R. maintains a gallery space in Brooklyn, NY and exhibits the work of hundreds of women artists each year. In addition to public open calls: Generations, the Biennial, Currents, and the Postcard Show, A.I.R. hosts many events, lectures and symposia on feminism, art and much more. Our programs engage an audience across a broad spectrum of experiences while creating a lively discourse among artists. A.I.R.’s Fellowship Program For Emerging and Underrepresented Women Artists provides a year-long career development intensive for six artists each year as well as life-long support and collaboration. Since 1972, when a group of visionary women artists opened the first gallery space at 97 Wooster Street in Soho, A.I.R. Gallery has been leading the way in championing women artists, increasing their visibility and the viability of their endeavors.

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON: 2021 POSTCARD SHOW
For its annual postcard show—to be held from May 28 to June 27, 2021—A.I.R. Gallery is issuing an open call for submissions that engage with this year’s theme of Keep On Keepin’ On.
When the pandemic closed down public spaces last March, we at A.I.R. Gallery took the opportunity to rethink how we do things. In response, A.I.R. offered innovative programming, such as Intimacy Without Proximity, that aimed to support and inspire artists from a distance. At the same time, we continued to look inward to better advance equity and inclusion within our community. It was important for us to Keep On Keepin’ On while finding new ways to do so.
A year later, we ask: How do you Keep On Keepin’ On? What changes have you made in the face of the challenges of the past year to push through, survive, or even thrive? What have you learned that you might share to inspire others?
We invite artists to participate by donating a postcard-size work (6 x 4 inches) in any medium relating to the theme of Keep On Keepin’ On. Each original work will be sold for $45 and all proceeds will benefit A.I.R. Gallery programs.
Submissions should arrive at A.I.R. Gallery (155 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201) no later than May 15, 2021. Please note that donated artworks will not be returned following the close of the exhibition.
ENTRY IS FREE & ALL WORKS ARE ACCEPTED!
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS MAY 15, 2021.
