Return to annual Calendars of Exhibitions


What is included

Calendars reference exhibitions devoted primarily to American representational art. Not all exhibitions submitted to TFAO 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. The deadline for inclusion in a current monthly calendar is the first day of that month.


How TFAO updates calendars for future exhibitions

Calendars are updated in two ways:


Twice or more yearly, TFAO volunteers use the calendar update schedule as a resource to search for future exhibits: A-C D-G H-L M-Q R-S T-Z


Calendars are updated on a continuous basis as information is received from institutional non-profit sources.


How TFAO uses calendars for future exhibitions

During the month in which exhibitions open, TFAO sends inquiries to institutional non-profit sources for texts and images for inclusion in its publication Resource Library.

For the current month inquiries have been made through Wichita Art Museum


Please verify dates with sponsoring institutions before visiting exhibitions.
