Call for Artists-The Gallery 2022 Exhibition Schedule
The Gallery at L.E. Shore is our main room and is a large open space. During the pandemic, this space is also being used as a browsable library room, which we hope will return to full Gallery space sometime during 2022. The Gallery is used for Library speaker series and other programs, so all materials must be able to be securely affixed to the walls. Pottery, jewelry, or other art forms may be considered for display in the Showcases and, when approved by the ACC as part of the annual exhibition plan, can be promoted as part of the monthly show. These shows are also available online.
Application forms for exhibiting in The Gallery can be found on our Applying to Exhibit page. The Application period is now open and closes August 31, 2021.
