In December 2003, the Winkler Gallery opened its doors to the public with a commitment to provide our region with a venue dedicated to fine art.
We have been proud to offer opportunities for accomplished artists to exhibit and sell their works of art. In the more recent past, we have been fortunate to have acquired additional studio spaces in an effort to develop an education center. With much work and dedication of our artist members we have managed to see this vision come to fruition.
Now with the same commitment and dedication, we have decided to expand our stable of artists and to add even more variety of creative mediums.
Starting October 8, 2018, we will begin our 1st biannual recruitment period and will be offering "you" an opportunity to submit your works of art for jurying and possibly having you as one of our new premier artist members.
Whether your media is 2 dimensional painting or photography, jewelry, stained glass, ceramics, pottery, or textiles, we are interested in reviewing your work. Throughout the months of October and November 2018, we will be accepting applications and offering reviews for possible memberships.
A one time fee of $25 application/jurors fee will be charged upon submitting your work. We request that you submit 5 to 7 examples of your work completed as they would be exhibited in the gallery.
Art examples must be presented with quality framing. No online submission will be accepted. Please bring artwork, application, and payment to the gallery in person.
Our gallery is unique in that we are a 501 (C) (3) artist cooperative. Each artist is given a large designated space to display their work for a minimal fee of $12 per month and a commitment to cover 2 shifts per month.
The Winkler Gallery charges only 25% commission on sales which is almost unheard of for galleries of such caliber.
Members are also given ongoing opportunities to offer paid classes and workshops at our education center.
If you’re looking for that special venue to show your work along with other accomplished artists in an amazingly beautiful gallery, this may be the place for you.
At the Winkler Gallery of Fine Art, we take great pride in the fact that our members are personable, dedicated, and professional. We feel that a cohesive and compatible environment is a must to ensure the spirit of creativity and success. You may be just what we need to enhance and compliment our already amazing organization.
If you have what it takes, we may take what you have!
