Unless deemed appropriate by Arts Council Staff, all works remain in the gallery until the exhibition is complete. Any sold works will be distributed to the buyers by the Greater Augusta Arts Council at the close of this showcase. Payments are processed monthly.

We encourage all artists interested in showing in the City Gallery to visit prior to submitting to get a sense of the space and the type of works that are typically shown.

Selected works may be dropped of at the Arts Council office the week prior to hanging. Additional information will be provided upon acceptance.

All participating artists are required to sign our gallery contract and submit a W9.
