CAE will be responsible for taking and processing all payments on sales; we receive a 30% commission on works sold.

The Rotary Gallery is located in the lobby at Center/Stage, viewable by those attending performances as well as groups utilizing the space for classes and meetings. About 20-30 pieces can be accommodated depending on size.

It's that time of year again! We are gearing up for the 2015 show and the call for entries is open. This year we will be using for the entry process. The direct link to the show is provided below as well as on our website. They provide excellent tech support so don't hesitate to call or email them if you have any trouble with their site, they have a reputation of going above and beyond for their clients and artists both. You can also download the prospectus from either their site or ours. Please be sure to read the prospectus carefully as we have made some policy changes since the last show that we cannot be flexible on as we have in the past such as changes can't be made for the information on your pieces after submission (including title and price), and return shipping labels must be included with the piece when sent to us.

The jurors this year include Ricki Klages – Head of UW Art Dept, Ezra Tucker – Painter and Illustrator and Mark Sawrie –Fine Art Instructor at Ball State University. Categories include: acrylic, drawing, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, printmaking, sculpture and watercolor.

Entries must be submitted by October 31st. Artists will be notified of their acceptance into the show in mid-December. Work is to be delivered to the Museum the first week of February. Accepted artists are welcome to bring a miniature to sell in our miniature show as in the past. The opening will be on March 7th along with the Artists Development Seminar. We will not be having the Ice Breaker on Friday night before the opening the same way as in the past, however we will host an Art Uncork'd event on Sunday the 8th at 10am for those interested. This will be our take for professional artists on the popular Canvas & Cocktails. We will provide the easel and canvas as well as some brushes and paints but please feel free to bring your own, the cost will be determined soon. There will be a small brunch and cocktails as well. This won't be something geared for the novice. This event is meant to be a fun way to get artists outside their comfort zone and learn from one another. There will be limited availability at this event so please contact me if you are interested.
