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.

National Juried Show Changing Perspectives at Gallery Underground

Artists are invited to submit works to Changing Perspectives in which they may interpret the theme in several ways: literal interpretations such as works representing unusual, off-kilter or innovative perspective as seen by the viewer; pieces in which artists change their own standard use of perspective in their work; or figurative interpretations where artists step out of their comfort zones and change the aesthetics of their typical artistic methods or subjects. Entrants will be asked to submit a paragraph indicating how their work fits the theme.
