Juried Shows

Member Shows
Members can enter up to three works each month. Shows change on the last Monday of the month, with the opening that following Friday. When a work sells, the member may bring a replacement for the remainder of the show without an additional charge.  A detailed schedule of gallery shows can be found by visiting our Calendar or Call for Artists on the website. Fees for entering are based on volunteer status. 
Cost for Members who Volunteer: $15 each for the first two pieces, $5 for a third piece. 
Cost for members who are unable to volunteer: $30 each for the first two pieces, $10 for a third piece. 
All member show entries MUST be available for sale.

Getting your images on the Web
Putting artwork on the web is a multi-stepped process.
1. The art must be photographed and or labeled with the artist's name and title of the artwork
2. The hi resolution photos are loaded on Dropbox for publication purposes.
3. The low resolution photos are created and optimized for the web.
4. Lastly, the artwork needs to be put in a gallery and posted on the web.

It takes 4 volunteers as there are usually around 100 pieces of artwork!
The galleries, depending on the volunteers' schedule, are usually up between the 6th-8th of the month.

We try to get the galleries done as quickly as possible.

Thank you in advance for your patience, Fontaine 832-474-2882
