The White Columns Curated Artist Registry
is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website. White Columns does not curate exhibitions from this Registry.
The White Columns Curated Artist Registry will be experiencing significant updates for the next several months and will not be open to users during this time. All users (pending and accepted) will be contacted when the site is updated with further instructions on how to maintain your portfolio or open application.
The updated Registry will no longer be a year-round rolling admissions process. The Registry will be open for submissions in the early Spring. You must submit your application within this window (Dates to be announced) in order to be considered. If you miss this date for submissions, please apply again next year. Applicants will then be notified in the Fall.
For any artist whose application is pending, unreviewed, or incomplete, please feel free to continue working on your application during the open submissions window. If you have already started an account, you will be notified by email when this window is open.
If you have not started an account, please check back for open submission dates to apply within the submissions window.
For any artist whose work is already accepted into the Registry, you will be notified when the site is open after the update.
The updated Registry will also review current artists on the registry. Current Registry Artists may be asked to resubmit.
White Columns will not accept phone calls or walk-ins regarding this matter. Please email email@example.com
for any questions or concerns. Due to the volume of applicants, we regretfully cannot provide feedback on your portfolio submission.
The goal for updating the Registry is to improve the process and quality of the Registry in order for it to be more widely used by online viewers. The Curated Artist Registry serves to increase the artist's digital accessibility. The updates will create a modern platform for viewing artwork which benefits the user, the viewer, and the applicant. Please be patient with us as we develop the new process for application and update the site.
