Welcome to the 43rd annual Members’ Art Show & Sale. We are excited to welcome and invite you to participate in a year-end celebration of member showcased artwork. This unjuried art show transforms all gallery spaces and honors our members with an opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork. We accept all submissions and mediums with the intent of highlighting a wide variety of artistic representation. With this in mind, we ask all members to please be attentive to  the following notes for completion of submission:

  • Current membership must be valid through December 31, 2024.
     

  • All online submissions are due by Sunday, October 13, 2024 (submission page will close at 5:00pm).
     

  • For each work of art sold, the artist will receive 60% of the sale price.
     

  • Each member may submit up to 2 pieces of work, including 3-dimensional work. Diptychs and triptychs may not be submitted as single pieces.
     

  • To keep the show fresh, we ask for original artwork that has been completed within the last two years.
     

  • There is no size limit; however, if you submit 2 large pieces, we may only be able to show one piece. We will do our best to accommodate and show as many works as possible.
     

  • Submission deadline, artwork drop-off dates, and artwork pick-up dates are very specific so we ask that you please be respectful of these dates. 
     

  • Please drop off your artwork through the front entrance of the building and upstairs to the Gallery between office hours of 9–5pm.
     

  • IMPORTANT: All artwork must be ready to hang or it will not be included in the Members’ Art Show. We are not able to supply any hanging systems.  We also cannot accept paper works unless they are framed or mounted with attached hanging hardware.
     
  • Upon drop off of your artwork, please remove all packing materials and take them with you. The Current is not responsible for storage of packing materials.
