What is a Member Artist Station?

Member Artist Stations.

Member Artists can apply to be selected as one of the six artists to be featured in this area. What does it include you ask? Each artist will be designated a folding art bin with their name on it and the wall space above it. If you're a 3-dimensional artist, you can swap the art bin for four pedestals. These stations will be the responsibility of the artist for four months. That means the artist can come into the Gallery and replace artwork or rotate those pieces on the wall regularly. The art bins are 24" wide and pictured here. Often up to (10) painting art can be housed in one station plus one on the wall. $20 FEE for 2 months Show.

There is a Gallery Committee in charge of the Exhibit that will be in charge of the artist selection process. Please notify us of your interest, via email to the Gallery, and we will set up a station for you, to bring in your art on Exchange Day.   Those in charge of curation will also oversee the art presentation of any given station. We want to make sure the presentation is professional and easy to view for our patrons. For more information download the application form linked below or contact the Gallery at We will be requiring images from each of the applicants before acceptance, so please include these. Unfortunately, you will not be in the Virtual show unless you have uploaded the piece that you plan to place on the wall.  Any pieces that you sell, you can replace and rotate the wall-hung piece if it sells.

You can email the form to the Gallery Manager ( or mail it to our business address at:
