We are looking for new up and coming talented artists to fill a wall space off of our main gallery. It would be a great way to showcase a sample of your artwork. Because the show would be limited to a few pieces, this would be a great  opportunity for you to show without all the complexities of a full exhibition. With a rotating exhibition schedule from established local Oklahoma artists, your pieces will be seen by a variety of diverse gallery patrons. Preference will be given to experimental and thought provoking artists in any discipline. Click here to be redirected to the submission platform.

Students and emerging artist are encouraged to apply, you can submit up to three pieces. 

Free entry for members and for non-members. 

Limited space available depending on the shape, size, and format of your art.
