Since all these art opportunities are located in the NYC area, it’s a good idea to visit the space before submitting to a show to make sure your work would be a good fit. Before you visit, double-check the venue’s hours. When you arrive you can view the art on display currently, but also ask questions about previous and upcoming shows to get a better feel for the types of work frequently selected for showing. For residency opportunities, you will want to be sure you have no conflicting obligations during the same time period, as most residencies prefer you to complete your time in one solid piece.
