Local Artist Show 2023

GDAG is pleased to present our annual community art exhibition — Local Artist Show 2023 — a chance to share your artistic creations in a BIG group show filling our gallery space to capacity.

Everyone is welcome, including anyone in our community or with ties to our community. Building on last year’s enthusiastic engagement by over 50 local artists, we will again welcome any kind of art, craft, or creative practice, reflecting the diversity of creativity and expression all around us.

The call for submissions is open to artists, artisans, and craftspeople with any level of experience—professional, beginner, or hobbyist, you are invited!

Submission forms are available now (see guidelines and form below). Register and drop off your artworks between May 24-28 at the gallery.

Art making is something that everyone can participate in, and we all benefit from sharing in a creative, supportive, and welcoming community.

We look forward to seeing you at the gallery and showcasing your creations in the Local Artist Show 2023!
