Connections 2022 Call for Art

Tags: Gallery News

** CALL HAS BEEN FILLED as of 6.23.2022. Thank you all very much. **

Calling all ACG members! Please accept our invitation to you and your artwork for a special exhibition this summer as we celebrate our 45th anniversary! We know many artists are inspired by other artists - here's your chance to invite them to showcase with you! Each ACG member can invite one non-ACG member to display their artwork in the returning exhibit, Connections. The goal of this exhibition is to highlight and expand everyone’s network of local and regional artists- Join us!


Current members with an active ACG membership will submit two works of art for consideration AND you invite one artist friend (who isn’t a member) to submit two works of art! Submissions will be reviewed and one artwork will be accepted to be shown per person. Members submit for free, and the non-members’ submission fee is $25. *If non-members become a member of ACG, the submission fee will be waived. This is only applicable to new members. ACG Members MUST invite a non-member friend in order to participate.

The exhibition will take place in certain sections of the gallery in a salon-style format, please read the submission guidelines below for size restrictions. To secure your spot (and your artist friend’s spot) in the show, you must register via this Submittable. Part of the members' Submittable form will require you to enter the email of the non-member artist friend you are inviting. Once you have submitted your form, your friend will be emailed a separate form to fill out and submit their artwork.

Only the first 25 ACG members and their associated non-member friends will be accepted into the Connections show (total of 50 artists), due to limited gallery space. Please submit sooner rather than later to ensure your inclusion in this highly anticipated exhibition!

This exhibit will be running in tandem with ACG’s 45th Anniversary celebration highlighting the Gallery’s archives, as well as a curated exhibit to be announced soon.
