Artist Submissions

The Gallery is committed to finding and presenting a stimulating range of contemporary artists and work to individuals, organizations and private collectors alike. We are ever on the lookout for both established artists and fresh, emerging talent. Our collection is diverse and eclectic, and we believe has something for everyone.

Submissions are reviewed annually in November for the upcoming season.  We are seeking submissions from qualified artists and curators proposing solo and group exhibitions of 2D and 3D work.

There are neither size restrictions nor a prerequisite price range on the accepted pieces. Please note that art pieces within The Gallery exhibition tend to sell better if they are priced less than $1000 and we limit the number of pieces we accept that are $2,000 or more. Further, we have limited space for displaying over-sized pieces of art.

The selection committee will meet to select exhibitions for the next seasons gallery schedule. Quality of work, evidence of ability to produce proposed exhibit, balance of mediums submitted for season, and completion and clarity of the proposal will all be considered. Notification of acceptance will be made by mid-November. If you are offered a show, it may be jointly with one or more other artists, because there may be more qualified people requesting space than can be accommodated by solo exhibitions. For joint shows, we try to choose applicants who are artistically compatible.
