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 22.  Within a couple weeks of completing the form, you will be contacted byone of the Quaker Arts Center Coordinators, Denny Webster and 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.

Participating in the PowerPoint Exhibit

FGC invites Quaker artists to submit 5-10 digital art works to be part of a revolving computer PowerPoint display in the Arts Center.  Artists submitting for the PowerPoint need not be attendees at the FGC gathering. The artworks must be in jpeg format and sent to blair AT by June 10. The artist’s name, address and monthly meeting attended must accompany the submission. Please put “FQA Art” in the subject line of the e-mail. Each digital image must have a title. PowerPoint artists must type their name and number of images they plan to submit in the space below. Filling out detailed bio information above is optional. If you have questions about the PowerPoint presentation contact Blair Seitz, PowerPoint coordinator, at blair AT


All submissions are due by June 10.  Artists submitting by May 31 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. 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.
