Friends are invited to exhibit original art work in FGC's Lemonade Gallery during the Gathering. We never know ahead of time exactly where the Lemonade Gallery exhibit space will be... so sometimes we need to make Lemonade from a lemon of a space! Exhibiting Friends are encouraged to consider the theme of Gathering, "At the Growing Edges of our Faith" when choosing artwork to submit. The subject & presentation of all artwork should be suitable for all ages.
Photo previews of artwork are linked in the form or emailed to the coordinator. If you have questions please email the Lemonade Gallery Coordinator Colby Abazs.
Note: Please be aware that the Lemonade Gallery 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 (or click the link below to download it) and email photo previews is necessary no later than June 10. You can expect to hear by June 11 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 Lemonade Gallery. Delivery and retrieval are the responsibility of the artist. There is no fee to show in the Lemonade Gallery, 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 Lemonade Gallery. 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.
