Apply to Join the Gallery
Are you an artist interested in joining the gallery?
The Artists’ Gallery has sixteen members who work in a variety of media. Functioning as a cooperative provides our artists an opportunity to grow and share enthusiastic encouragement to each other.
Members are allotted equal opportunities to display their work. Every other month the art is rotated and members are encouraged to display new work. Artists whose work can’t be hung (potters, jewelry, wood carvers, etc.) are displayed on pedastels or shelves. The Aesthetics Committee oversees arrangement of artwork within the gallery on an ongoing basis.
In addition to each artists allotted space, members are provided the opportunity of having a special exhibit. Gallery members also enjoy the benefit of exhibiting their work at locations outside the Gallery, such as satellite locations for the Olympia Arts Walk.
