They are not required to select cWOW members, and selected artists are not required to become members.

This process ensures the highest-quality independent selection, while also providing crucial support for our award-winning exhibition, education, and residency programs. The exhibitions are open to all media and sizes of visual art, including 2-D, 3-D, new media, performance art, etc. An open call for work will be posted to accompany each curatorial proposal. There will be a public reception, catalog, announcement cards, email blasts and other publicity for each exhibit.

Proposals must include (a) the curator’s resume, (b) a brief concept statement for a group exhibition with multiple artists, and (c) sample images. Prospective curators are encouraged but not required to join to be considered for this opportunity, with a minimum annual donation of $35 for individual members or $25 for students and seniors. Your donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. See other member benefits and join online at www.cwow.org.

Alumni Aferro Studio residents have commented that the chance for
informal networking with local, national and international peers
afforded by residency in the building was one of the best aspects of

projects, book groups, dinners and critique sessions. Also mentioned
by residents consistently as a unique and valuable aspect of the
program was temporary ownership of a platform to interact with the

work.
