Art Exhibit Submissions

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

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

Art Exhibit Requirements

  • Gallery sitting requirements. Please go to Sign Ups Genius and register for your account. Enter two time slots if possible DURING THE MONTH PERIOD of the salon you are exhibiting in. If no time slots are available you can select any other time slots in a different month
  • We will accept from one to five pieces from each artist. Artists can apply to participate in the salon as often as they want; however, first-time participants will be given priority if space is limited. 
  • Submissions should be new work, created within the past 3 years. Artwork should not have been exhibited in the W Gallery in the past 12 months.
  • All of the work should be framed or professionally displayed, and be ready for hanging with D-clips and wire. 3-D artwork can be hung depending on size and weight. We have pedestals to display 3-D artwork if needed. Frames, both front and back, should be professional in appearance. If tape is used it should be very neat and professional looking. Duct tape should not be used.  If multiple works are exhibited there should be an effort to have frames as consistent looking as possible in the submissions. Failing to meet these requirements may result in rejection of works after drop off requiring the artist to pick up before the show is hung."
  • Labels must be on the back of each artwork: (name of piece, artist’s name, medium, dimensions, price.) Work without label will not be accepted during drop off.
