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.

Exhibiting or Performing in the Quaker Arts Center

Interested in exhibiting or performing? 

Complete the Intent to Show/Perform Form by June 20.


On acceptance, the Art Center 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. The SPACE IS NOT LOCKED except at night.


Artwork on display in the Gallery may be offered for sale, on consignment, through the QuakerBooks at the Gathering Store. 30% of the sale price will be deducted by FGC as a commission, which is the same term as all other consignments sold at the Gathering. However, artists displaying at the Quaker Arts Center are not expected to register in advance with the Consignments Coordinator.
