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.


Shows hosted by the North Hills Art Center include an Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony.

Artists calls for our shows posted approximately 5 weeks before show opening.

All shows are open to the public for viewing.  Viewing and parking are free!

Please note: : this year, due to the cancellation of many local Artisan Markets/Craft Shows, our limited space, and in fairness to all of our artists, we will be screening applications. This will ensure inclusion of a wide variety of art/crafts and continue the high quality shopping experience of years past. In order to facilitate this, JPGS will be required at the time of application. Please understand this is only a spacing issue and hopefully only for 2020!!

DECEMBER: Enjoy time at home creating with family & friends!
