Congregation Beth Shalom is proud to offer a gallery space where local artists can come together to exhibit their work. We have 4 shows every year, from September or October through May, each show approximately 6 to 8 weeks long. There is a reception for the artists at one of the Friday night Onegs (social hours) during the exhibit. Each show features the work of either one or two artists, or a group show can also be considered.

We welcome applications from artists creating 2-dimensional art in all media, in all styles and genres. Please keep in mind that the work should be suitable for a family-oriented house of worship, so use discretion is deciding what work to submit. Artists should have a body of work of at least 10 pieces that are related in some way. There is room to display at least 20 and up to 40 pieces for each show, dependent on size and weight. The art must be wired for hanging, whether framed or not. Saw -tooth or any other type of hook can’t be accepted. Wires must be securely attached to the frame or canvas stretchers.

There is a $20 jury fee, to cover expenses of mounting the shows (waived for Congregation members). The Congregation requests a donation of 20% of any sales realized during the show. Sales are handled by the individual artists.
