Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Gathering Quaker Arts Center

Friends are invited to exhibit original art work in FGC's Quaker Arts Center during the Gathering. We hope to also be able to accommodate performance artists with short pieces that can be done in intimate, informal spaces.

Participating in the Quaker Arts Center

Interested in exhibiting or performing? 

Complete the Intent to Show/Perform form by May 31.  (A link to the form will be available by April 15.) Within a couple weeks of completing the form, you will be contacted by Quaker Arts Center Coordinator Phil Furnas.

Please be aware that the Quaker Arts Center is a shared space, and it may not be possible to display a large number of works by a single artist. The number and size of submissions, and the space available will determine how many pieces we can display.


Please fill out the online form (link to be provided by April 15) and email photo previews is necessary no later than May 31. You can expect to hear by June 10 whether or not your submission has been accepted. Preference for space is given to earlier submissions.


On acceptance, the Gallery coordinator will send details on delivering and retrieving your work to/from the Quaker Arts Center. Delivery and retrieval are the responsibility of the artist. There is no fee to show in the Quaker Arts Center, but there is an obligation. Each exhibitor agrees to help with setup and takedown as well as rotate their artwork for each days theme.


Friends General Conference will take reasonable precautions to secure all work in the Quaker Arts Center. However, all work is shown at the artist's risk. Neither Friends General Conference nor the host College/University  assumes any responsibility or risk for your work. Any insurance for art work is to be provided by the artist. This year we are using lobby space near the information desk. THIS SPACE IS NOT LOCKED except at night.


Artwork on display in the Gallery may be offered for sale-on consignment-through the FGC Gathering Store. 30% of the sale price will be deducted as a consignment fee to FGC.
