We are currently looking for talented artists to display in our soon-to-be-opened Community Gallery space in our Astor House location. We have two slots available right now. Simply email our curator at with photos of your work and a brief proposal of what your show or series would be about. All proposals will be considered. See below for dimensions of the space. Please keep in mind that a modular wall system will be available to add hanging space for artists with larger
collections. All shows in the community Gallery will pay an honorarium of $250 to the artist and installations costs (not shipping) will be covered by FAC.


Artists needing assistance with the CaFÉ online system can contact CaFÉ directly.


CaFÉ (which stands for Call for Entry) is one of the more popular websites for entering exhibitions online, and it’s the one that FAC uses for all of our juried exhibitions. We even make it less expensive to apply through CaFÉ – plus, we give you longer to apply!

One of the best things about CaFÉ is that they have great step-by-step instructions to help you use their website. Learn how to apply to calls for entry using CaFÉ. They make it very easy to set up a profile, search for opportunities, and apply to exhibitions.
