You can even include a poem, scripture or quote. P lease be aware of the following guideline: due to the limited number of pieces that we can include on the gallery walls, not all submissions will be selected for the final gallery. Ms. Astrid & our volunteer gallery crew will determine the final curation based on how closely these instructions are followed, so please read all details below! (Note: art submissions that are not selected for the exhibit will be included in a digital magazine, and will be welcome to participate in all future exhibitions.) View our previous Gallery Tour some sample exhibits for free here . Submission Guidelines and Requirements: All media is eligible for consideration (excluding videos) : all visual arts, painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and digital art. We are open to seeing other mediums as well. We are open to many different styles and formats and thinking and creating outside of the box. Submissions must be made online via our submission form.

Gallery goes live to the public by February 1, 2023. Your upload must accompany online payment of $1 (USD) or will not be recognized. This small fee is applied toward the cost of purchasing access to the custom virtual exhibition website. It is a non-refundable fee and no changes of images can be made after you submit without another entry fee. Due to limited wall space, we cannot guarantee that all artwork will be included in the public gallery. The decision to accept entries is based solely on the overall collection being curated in the gallery. However, any submissions not selected for the gallery will be included in our free digital magazine. The virtual exhibit will be published and accessible online to the public. Artists may choose to submit as many pieces as they like, into multiple categories that apply, but they must be separate entries, each with a separate $1 fee. For examples, you may enter a piece in the Traditional Arts categories for your age group as well as another piece for the Digital Arts category. The total fee would be $2. Submission image size: Uploads should be a JPG file only, with a maximum size of 10 MB. If the image is too large it will be resized, but the quality may be affected. This may result in the submission being pulled from the gallery selection. You are encouraged to sign your work. Important!! Your files should be renamed as follows: First name Last name_Title of the piece.jpg , making sure that underscores go between your name and the name of the piece (i.e. Pablo Picasso_The Old Guitarist.JPG). Please rename your image before uploading it to the submission form.
