CALL FOR EXHIBITION PROPOSALS – Cultural Center at Rocky Neck

The Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC)
is seeking proposals from artists,
for exhibitions in 2017,
two of which will be chosen to
receive an honorarium grant.

RNAC will award the two grants of $1,000 for two five-week exhibition slots available in the spring of 2017. The grants will cover the cost of the exhibition space—for the selected artists—plus postcard printing and mailing.  RNAC is delighted to have received a generous grant from the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation to support a number of exhibitions at the Cultural Center from June of 2016 through July of 2017. The grant supports the RNAC objective, to move from artist-supported exhibitions to those supported by the organization.

Each proposed exhibition will include two or more artists and include at least one RNAC artist member. This is a great opportunity for artists in our community to exhibit their work at the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck. The deadline for grant proposal submissions is Wednesday, February 1, 2017. For more information and a complete prospectus please visit:

Both sellers were honest and kept to their word holding the kettles for me til I could get there four days later.

Here were the respective Craigslist ad photos-


Issues with the Simpson’s kettle:  Whitewall inserts cracked on the wheels, lots of surface on the triangle, oxidization on the legs, surface rust around the handle welds and rim of the lid, oxidized vent. missing front leg cap.
