**UPDATE: 2021-We now require jpegs of ALL artwork submitted for our gallery shows. Gallery shows are now both in the building and online (virtual). There is a $5 photo fee PER PIECE if the North Hills Art Center takes the photo(s) of your piece(s). Helpful tips-take the photo BEFORE framing to reduce glare. Avoid sending photos with images in the background (your sofa, your child, etc. Crop if necessary before sending). Photo MUST be sent to email@example.com PRIOR to art drop off. Thank you.
Photo files MUST be labeled as directed on artists call. Need help? Renaming photos
The North Hills Art Center supports local artists in a variety of ways – from providing a vibrant gallery and community for showcasing artwork in our many exhibitions throughout the year, holding a private show (emerging artists), the opportunity to be an artist and educator; and to create during Open Studio Sessions.
By becoming a Member of the Art Center, artists can enjoy lower fees when entering shows and taking classes; enjoy discounts at several local art supply & framing shops and be one of the first to know about upcoming shows/events through our email newsletter. Membership also qualifies the artist to free entry in our Artisan Markets (held once or twice a year) where you can showcase your work to the many patrons who seek out our Artisan Markets.
