Calling All Artists

Exhibition Participation Details

We are excited to exhibit the art of the area’s most talented artists and will give preference to our members. Most months will feature group shows as follows:

  • Six to eight 2D artists and two 3D artists will be invited to exhibit from First Friday to the end of the month. Exhibition space will be divided equally.
  • Fee is $50 per artist.
  • All artists in a show must commit to “sit” 8 hours during the month.
  • One month will be reserved for a fundraiser for the gallery.
  • All shows will have an opening reception, and publicity in social media, regional print media and other listings.

We are excited to have a downtown location, providing the opportunity for artists to show their work to a new audience of local and out-of-town art buyers. With the Fraser Centre stores, hotel, restaurant, and condomiums opening over the fall and early winter, traffic on Fraser St. will certainly increase!

We hope you will fill out the Artist Submission Form to be considered for a show at the Gallery. No fee is due at the time of application. Each show will have a theme and as each show is curated artists will be invited to exhibit in a particular month.

If you have any questions please contact the gallery at 814-234-2740.
