In light of AS220’s founding mission to provide an uncensored, unjuried, all-ages forum for artists, we extend the opportunity to exhibit original creative work in our galleries to every resident of Rhode Island. To support our mission, AS220’s Galleries and Performance Space are partially subsidized by proceeds from our restaurant, Foo(d) and The Bar at AS220. In the course of a year, over 150 artists participate in the monthly exhibits at AS220’s four rotating galleries, with between 4 and 100 artists showing their work during any given month. There is always work on display at the Main Gallery and Open Window on the ground floor of AS220’s Empire Street Complex, at the Youth Gallery on Empire Street’s 2nd floor, and at the Project Space Gallery and Reading Room, which occupies 1st floor commercial space at AS220’s Dreyfus building. Still the demand for exhibition space is so great, artists often wait as long as two years for the opportunity to show their work at AS220. In 2011, AS220’s the year-round artists-in-residence of AS220’s three buildings established a Resident Gallery in the Mercantile Block foyer and now organize bi-monthly exhibits in the space.  In addition to free public opening receptions on the first Sunday of the month, AS220 Galleries hosts free monthly artist talks by exhibiting artists.
