All artists go through a juried process to become exhibiting members of the gallery.
The gallery draws from a stable of approximately 100 artists. Occasionally there are openings available when new or returning artists are considered. We do two annual member shows, in the spring and fall, in which member work is juried and additional artists may be invited to submit work for consideration.
Artists who wish to join Valley Art Gallery can email five images of recent works and include title, medium, dimensions, year, and price. Also include an artist statement, bio and/or website link, if you have them. Email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. New artists’ work is evaluated for its quality and market appeal in our area. Only original art is accepted. After the initial screening, selected artists will be invited to make an appointment to bring in their work for jury. If your work is accepted, you will be required to become an artist member of Valley Art Gallery, which costs $100 per year. You may also be asked to volunteer during the year in support of a specific project or for an ongoing routine task – whatever fits your interests, time, and schedule.
The review process is ongoing. Interested craft artists should call or email the gallery with their contact information and medium. They will be contacted by the galley’s fine crafts and jewelry coordinator.
From the beginning, volunteers have been the backbone of Valley Art Gallery. They participate in every aspect of the operation. As a volunteer, you will enjoy meeting people who share similar interests and will also be part of an organization that believes art is an essential part of any community. Your involvement can be in specific projects or routine tasks throughout the year – whatever fits best into your personal schedule. Volunteers enjoy art talks, demonstrations, and occasional museum trips.
Membership is open to everyone and dues are $50 per year. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact us.
