Artist Resources

Featured Artist Showcase

The gallery offers smaller displays in the main gallery of 10-15 artists’ work which rotates through the gallery every 2-3 months. Artists have the option of a standard 2- month program or a “Co-Op” program featuring a 3- month term with additional benefits.

For over 26 years, the gallery has presented monthly changing exhibits of single artists, vignette shows and group exhibits in the gallery.  These are scheduled 6 months in advance and presented in our Gallery 444 showroom.

In addition to the gallery’s great retail framing options, we offer artists special framing incentives. We have both custom and readymade options to help you get your artwork ready in a timely and cost-effective manner.

We have a new opportunity for artists who don’t have their own web presence to get a hosted webpage on our website.   For a nominal fee, artists can list originals and prints on our site and sell through our gallery store.

Art Classes at the Gallery

In 2016, we started offering art classes in the gallery.  These small-size classes are designed to help artists hone their skills without the pressure or expense of formal education.  Classes are listed on our website.

How do I get involved?

 We encourage artists to get involved with our gallery and want to make the experience of participating here pleasant and accessible to all artists.  Our general manager will be happy to meet with you personally to discuss and evaluate your artwork for consideration. You can also send us digital examples of your work via e-mail or other digital media.

Needed:  Artwork files (jpgs, pngs or tiff files are preferred), a current artist statement and/or resume, or a current website/social media site representing your work as an artist.

Although all artwork is juried into the gallery, we never want to discourage any artistic endeavor and will always offer our best suggestions to help you grow as an artist.  We also encourage our artists to get involved in art groups like Artists In Action or any of the local community art groups.

What are your involvement options?

     There are two ways to get involved as an artist here. One great way to start is to participate in our Featured Artist Showcase.  Started in 2016, this program features smaller “vignette” displays of artwork in the main gallery which rotate through each 2-3 month period.

      The other way is to present a larger show in Gallery 444 as a scheduled artist.  This usually involves a commitment of around 25-40 artworks (size dependent).  These shows are scheduled 6 months in advance and open on the First Wednesday of each month.

We welcome new artists in the gallery on a regular basis.  There are many ways to get involved in the gallery including our Featured Artist Showcase, our monthly changing shows in Gallery 444 and our art classes/events throughout the year.
