Two more Members’ Co-op Shows are scheduled this year – each will run for 5-1/2 weeks as follows: July 5 – August 11; and August 15 – September 22. During each show, we are offering ten spaces measured in linear feet of wall or floor space. They are priced per linear foot per day for the run of each show. Member Co-Op artists will have more flexibility in hanging and showcasing their works within their own spaces. They will also be able to participate more actively in advertising themselves and their Works, either alone, or in partnership with WCAC and/or other Co-Op artists.  If you are interested in being in one of these shows, please go to how to exhibit for details or click here for the Letter of Agreement, Application, and Gallery Schematic. Please read the Letter of Agreement and Application thoroughly. If you still wish to apply, please follow the instructions within both documents. With only ten spaces available per show, they will be allocated on a first come basis, so please act quickly.

Also New for 2017!

In addition to the Members’ Co-Op shows and our regular Annual Members’ Show, we will hold a Regional Juried Show in the Fall for artists in the greater Hampton Roads area. Members & Non-members will be invited to apply and to submit digital images of their artwork to be juried into the show. An outside Juror will select the art to be included in the show and award prizes. Check out the 2017 Exhibition Calendar for details and Fireside Members’ Gallery Themes!
