A. You must submit an application along with work sample images through the google form which is linked on this main page
While there are no geographical requirements, artists are required to hang/install and take down their own exhibit. 
A gallery waiver is also required once accepted and confirmed as an exhibiting artist. Please also make sure you have enough pieces to display (see below).

A. The gallery fees vary based on specific gallery as they all differ in size. There are gallery fees to assist in cost associated with marketing, gallery equipment and maintenance. There is not an application fee for submitting.
