Exhibiting artists of The Art League gallery may submit work at their own risk according to the following guidelines:
A qualified arts professional is invited to judge and to make award selections. The juror functions as an independent judge and is not associated with The Art League as an exhibiting member, student, or staff. Each exhibit may be expected to reflect the opinions of its judge. Selection of a different judge each month assures variety in successive exhibits and a broader opportunity to member artists. No judge is invited back for at least two years to allow for a broad base of opinion.
Gallery 75: Gallery 75 provides an opportunity for Exhibiting Artists to continuously exhibit in one of the most visited galleries in the region, to build a client base and to sell your work. Artists who are juried into three shows in one exhibiting year (July 1 to June 30) are eligible to display framed, unframed, and three-dimensional work in this space, as well as in an online gallery.
