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!
