1. Become a member.
2. Contact the Gallery Chairperson, or the chair of a gallery you want to exhibit at.
3. If you are a new member, we have set aside the end of each year for you to have an opportunity to exhibit
4. It is the intention of the galleries chairs to give all artists an opportunity to exhibit, because of this each gallery space has a rotation of 2 years.  How does this work.  If you sign up for Wells Fargo, you can exhibit there every 2 years.  If you sign up for 4th floor at Gundersen, you can still exhibit on 5th floor, each gallery has a 2 year rotation.  Exception, new members have the end of year exhibit opportunity, or if a member has to cancel their exhibit, the gallery chair will contact members to see if they can step in, here it does not matter if you have exhibited just recently, our goal is to keep our galleries full. 
5. Each gallery chair has a list of do's and don'ts for their gallery, they will keep you informed of these and any current changes.  The gallery space we use is part of a business and we have to respect their space and rules.  Do Not contact the gallery yourself.  Go through the gallery chairperson.  There will be a penalty for talking to the gallery without first contacting your gallery chair. 
6.  Make sure you have a release on file.  This is available through any gallery chairperson.
1. Put your best work on display.  Your work is the first impression of you the artist they see.
2. Send out postcards to friends, family and past clients.  These are your best customers.  Friends may bring a friend who has not seen your work, family can spread the word, and past clients are ussually looking for more of your works to display.
3. Have an artists statement/biography a brief paragraph is fine.
4. Have an image of one of your pieces that may be put into the paper.
Good Luck!
