Return to annual Calendars of Exhibitions

These calendars reference temporary exhibitions of American representational art. Future calendars are updated on a continuous basis -- usually weekly -- as information is received from institutional non-profit sources. The deadline for inclusion in a current monthly calendar is the first day of that month. Not all items submitted are included in calendars. Group exhibitions of artist organizations, faculties and students at museums or art centers and those not deemed to be balanced in favor of American representational art are excluded. Revisions of dates are accepted and encouraged in order for calendars to be as accurate as possible. Exhibition dates may and do change without notice.

Please verify dates with sponsoring institutions before visiting exhibitions.

If you are touring, you will find American representational art venues to visit in Sources of News Articles Indexed by State within the United States.
