Gateway Gallery Call for Artist Membership Applications

Gateway Gallery artists’ cooperative welcomes membership applications from area artists in a variety of 2D and 3D media. Since opening in 2010, Gateway Gallery has become a destination venue for artists to show and sell their work to a large following of area residents and visitors to western Loudoun attractions. Only work by Gateway artist members is shown and sold in the gallery. Members manage all aspects of gallery operations, and staff the gallery by sitting at least two four-hour shifts each month. Members pay monthly dues of $45 and contribute 20% of their monthly gallery sales toward gallery expenses. We especially seek new members in media or styles distinctly different from work already represented in the gallery.
