Join our co-op!
Gallery 25 is a cooperative gallery. Member artists work together to manage all aspects of this professional gallery.
To Become a Member
Membership requires a screening process. The screening procedure involves a presentation of your artwork to members of the gallery at a monthly meeting. A gallery member presents your artwork and related materials to the membership for discussion and vote. An 80% vote by gallery artists is required to become an artist member of Gallery 25. The screening artist will be notified immediately following adjournment of the gallery meeting.
Interested Artists Must Submit for Review:
1. Portfolio of Art Work: Minimum of 10, max of 20 (photos or originals). Digital images are an acceptable means of presentation, but the artist screening is responsible for laptop computer and/or data projector. Members would like to see 3 representative originals if artist presents digitally or with photos.
2. A Written Statement of your Philosophy of Art or Artist's Statement. Any ancillary materials that showcase your artwork and past exhibitions (reviews, articles, brochures, catalogs) are encouraged.
3. Art Resume
Screenings are held monthly
