Artists are encouraged to participate at the Cannon Beach Gallery by entering juried shows or by making a proposal for a featured exhibit. All artists will be required to complete a consignment agreement with the gallery for the duration of the exhibit. In addition, either a Jury Form for Juried Shows or an Inventory Form for Featured Exhibits will be required from each artist.
Juried group shows are open to all artists and are curated by visiting arts professionals. Past jurors have included Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson, Charles Froelick, Jessi DiTillio, and Jennifer Zika. The Cannon Beach Gallery has three to four juried shows each year. A call for work notice is sent out to a mailing list of artists via email. Any interested artist can be placed on the email list. Shows are always juried from actual exhibit ready work by a guest juror. Generally artists can submit three pieces in any medium. Work must be recent (within 2 years) and be for sale. Occasionally there is a theme for a juried show. Information specific to each show is included on the call for work. Call or email the Gallery with your contact information (name, address, phone, e-mail) to be included in our artists list and to receive notice for all juried shows.
Artists are invited to be featured at the Gallery for solo, group and themed exhibits. A committee oversees the selection of artists to be featured. Any interested artist(s) can submit a proposal to be featured. Artists may also make a proposal to be featured in the Gallery. A proposal should include at least 10 images (photos or digital) of artwork, an artist’s resume, a written description of what the artist is proposing for exhibit, and any other materials that may help the Gallery Committee make selections. Please include a SASE for return of materials. The Committee reviews artist’s packets as they are received throughout the year.
