"Bringing Art to the People and People to the Arts"

Get Your Artwork Seen!

The Blue Ridge Arts Center offers its members
many opportunities to show their artwork.

Members Gallery:

The Members Gallery gives our members more opportunities to show their artwork. The space holds about 15 medium to large 2D pieces on the walls and has room for 5 to 10 pedestals for 3D pieces.

  • To show in the Members Gallery, you must be a member of the Art Center.
  • Proposals are accepted once a year and reviewed by the Gallery Committee to fill the available slots.
  • 70% of work must be for sale. A 35% commission will be paid to the Art Center
  • We encourage the following:
    • New work created just for the show
    • Theme and/or title for the show
    • Two-artist shows – one 2D and one 3D

Deadline for 2025 Proposals is July 1, 2024.

Proposals must include the following:

  • Artist(s) name
  • Title or Theme for show
  • A short artist bio
  • Approximate number of pieces which will be created for the show
  • Any other details or comments that you think we should know
  • Images of your work
  • If you are only submitting 2D or 3D, would you be willing to be partnered with another artist in order to fill the gallery with a mix of work?

Questions about the Members’ Gallery or your proposal? Contact the Members Gallery coordinator, Liz Purcell, at epurcellg@aol.com or 864-380-5508.

DEADLINE for Submissions for 2025 Members Gallery Shows is July 1, 2024.

Main Gallery:

As a Art Center member, you will be able to display in the annual Members’ Show. If you choose, you can also take part in the Juried Show, the Photography Show, and other themed show(s) each year.

Occasionally, we feature a one-person show in the main gallery. Depending on the size of your work, you will need at least 50 pieces to properly fill the space.

Studio Gallery:

This space is often used to promote upcoming classes. From time to time it is used for a one-person show. Depending on the size of your work, you will need 15 to 20 pieces to properly fill the space.


Foyer Gallery:

As a member you will be able to participate in our Member Challenges. These Member Challenges will be hung in the Foyer. Challenges will hopefully motivate our members to explore new directions as artists… who knows where it might lead. Artists are encouraged to create new work specifically for these Challenges, not pull from inventory.


Online Gallery:

In addition to our galleries in Seneca, we want to promote your art in our Online Gallery as well!. Each member is invited to submit a short bio/artist statement along with up to 3 images and a link to their website or Facebook page. When you renew your membership each year, you are encouraged to submit new images to keep your newest work in front of our web audience. You can submit work for the Online Gallery, but clicking here.
