About the show

Emerging artists, creatives who are new to publicly showing their artwork, are paired with more established artists who share how their artwork has emerged over time.

If you’re an emerging artist interested in gallery exhibition, select a handful of your pieces and submit them to the show. If you’re an established artist, submit a trio of artworks to display together that show how you’ve evolved as an artist over time.

Apply to be an artist in the show

This application is a two step process. Once both steps are completed, your work will be considered for the show.

Step 1: Tell us about you

Please complete the Artist Registration form only once. This form doesn’t ask for information about your art pieces. That comes next!

Step 2: Tell us about your artwork

Fill out and submit this form for each individual art piece you’re interested in showing. This means you can send in this form as many times as necessary.

Emerging artists: please submit a handful of your works.

Established artists: please submit three works that show how you’ve evolved as an artist over time.
