The Jury Process

Space permitting, every artist's work will be included. If we must jury …

1. We will exhibit fewer pieces of each artist to enable us to show every artist’s work

2. Local artists have preference

3. Presentation of artwork (Is the piece wired, ready to hang? If the piece is sculpture, jewelry or fine craft, is a pedestal or display available? Is the frame, matting and artwork in excellent condition?)

4. Involvement of the artist (If they’ve exhibited before, did they attend the “Meet The Artists” Reception? Have they volunteered or offered support? We are an artist’s gallery.)

Our goal is to exhibit fine artworks while allowing budding artists a chance to exhibit their developing artwork as they discover their true artistic calling. Take advantage of this unique opportunity and submit your art for this show!

We love new artists!

Artists are invited to submit up to 5 pieces of artwork (more if small works, fine crafts, custom jewelry, etc.) in our upcoming art show. Space permitting, every entry will be included. All mediums are acceptable, including assemblages. Two dimensional artwork must be wired, ready to hang, with a frame or wrapped canvas (no side staples). Maximum size (including frame) is 5 ft. high by 6 ft. wide, however, smaller pieces are preferred.

To submit artwork: Please read and sign the Exhibition Application and the Liability Waiver/Sales Agreement (download) and bring artwork in during the Drop off dates (below).

Entry Fee: $10.00 per piece or volunteer for one hour per piece. Contact us if submitting more than 5 pieces.

Questions? Please email Kara at or call (208) 932-0893 [easily remembered as 208-93-208-93]
