Welcome to the 41st annual Members' Art Show & Sale. With a new date this year, and in celebration of summer rejuvenation, we are excited to once again showcase member-submitted artwork. This unjuried show transforms the 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 showcasing a wide variety of artistic representation. With this in mind, we ask all members to please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Current membership valid through July 31, 2022
     

  • All online submissions are due by Thursday, May 12, 2022
     

  • For each work of art sold, the Artist will receive a generous 65% of the sale price.
     

  • Application is below
     

  • 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.

    - Tuesday, May 17 - Saturday, May 21, 2022

    - Please drop off your artwork through the front entrance of the building's main entrance to the Gallery.
     

  • All artwork must be ready to hang when brought into the Gallery or it will not be included in the Members’ Art Show.
     

  • Upon drop off of your artwork, please remove all packing materials and take them with you. The Current is not responsible for storing packing materials of any kind.
