Member Salons Submissions

Part of your membership benefit is exhibiting in the W Gallery Member Salon.

The W Gallery invites member artists to submit for monthly exhibits. Each exhibit will be up for four weeks, generally corresponding to the calendar. We have a monthly reception for exhibitors, usually tied to a music performance which brings out a great audience to see the exhibit.
