Call for Art: Members' Show 2019

Tags: Gallery News

The Members' Show focuses on the importance of local and regional artists that live and create work within 100 miles of Albany. The Members' Show will be held from Friday, December 6th, 2019 to Friday, January 10th, 2020. The Opening Reception will be held on Friday, December 6th, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. We will be awarding “Best in Show,” a cash prize of $250, along with other prizes and awards.

ACG’s Members' Show highlights and recognizes a wide range of talented members, bringing together a dynamic cross-section of artists, diverse in medium and degree of establishment. Members range from student and emerging artists to established and international artists, from painters and photographers to sculptors and mixed media artists. ACG sees this show as an opportunity for exposure, promotion, and appreciation of all who have invested their time and energy in making our gallery what it is today.
