INFORMATION FOR ARTISTS
What better venue for an artist to exhibit their work than in our beautiful gallery. We encourage artists of all levels to consider presenting their work for consideration to a show that fits their theme or medium. We are adamant that all work be presented with a professional look: clean, in good condition, ready for hanging or displaying on a pedestal. Wall art must have wire on the back for our hook and cable system of hanging. We will be happy to instruct you on the proper method of installing wire.
