Local Galleries, Venues & Frame Shops

Included are links to our local galleries. Remember that gallery owners are very busy people. It’s best to contact them via snail mail with a CD of your work rather than to walk in unannounced asking to have your work shown there. You might follow up with an email to ask if they received the CD and how they liked it. Most galleries are also frame shops. Don’t forget to patronize them!

Our local libraries happily show local artist’s work. The space varies and you should make a visit to each location to see how the lighting is and how much work can be hung. Call or stop in to sign up (Usually for a month at a time).

This is an easy way to initially get your work out in the public eye. Libraries generally do not take a commission but are often in need and a small donation would be welcomed.
