Become an Exhibiting Artist

Local artists are encouraged to become members of the Gallery cooperative.  As a member, you are a contributor in the running of the Gallery operation and in exchange, you pay rent to exhibit your art work, benefit from marketing and advertising by the Gallery and pay a very low commission rate when your art sells. You become part of a very supportive art community.

To become a member, you must be juried into the Gallery.  Once an application is submitted, you will be notified to bring your art work to the Gallery to be reviewed by a peer group of artists.  If your art is accepted, next step is to be interviewed by the Board of Directors.  Upon acceptance, you will be placed on a wait list until display space becomes available.  Participation in the jury process costs $25.


When space is available, you will be asked to sign a contract which spells out the financial and work relationship between you and Gallery 302. A copy of a contract is available for your review. There is a training program to explain the workings of the Gallery operation.  A mentor will also be assigned to advise on how the Gallery is run and to provide any support you might need.


Some other benefits and obligations:

  • Exhibits are moved 2 times per year to keep the Gallery fresh

  • Artists need to “gallery sit” approximately 7 times every six month, or a minimum of 40 hours a year

  • Participation in a committee is expected. Thanks to the Internet, virtual meetings are easy to attend!

  • Exhibiting artists meet 4 times yearly to discuss business

  • Artists Receptions are usually held monthly on a Friday evening. They are a wonderful way to meet and mingle with your fellow artists as well as potential client

  • The Gallery uses social media, newspapers ads and website to advertise and promote our artists and events. 

  • Classes and gatherings are available to artists to share experiences and enhance your artistic endeavors
