Hanging Night and Monthly Member Exhibit
All artists can participate in our Monthly Members' Exhibit by coming to Hanging Night, held on the Monday before the first Saturday of each month. (See the Event Calendar for exact dates.)
Check in begins at 5:30pm. Volunteers will help new members fill out the paperwork, pay member dues, and sign up for volunteering. At 6:30pm, we start arranging the exhibit, and soon after hang the show.
Don't have art to hang?
Feel free to stop by, anyway! We invite anyone interested in putting together an exhibit to participate. Learn how to hang art work, check out the gallery, and meet a lot of cool artists.
Not a member?
That's fine, too! Everyone is welcome.
Display of Work
Our Member Exhibit is not juried or censored, but we do require that all art be ready to hang. Appropriate framing and hardware depends on the artwork.
Sawtooth hangers should be avoided because they can't carry enough weight and often fall off the wall. Hanging wire is strongly recommended whenever it can be used. Unvarnished work and works on paper should be framed with glass or plastic for their protection. The gallery has pedestals for sculptures and other 3D works that can't be hung on the wall. Larger works and furniture may be set on the floor.
Membership Dues and Hanging Fees
In order to become a member of A/NT Gallery, an artist must hang in a members' exhibit and pay at least one hanging fee, which counts as member dues. Membership lasts for one year after paying a hanging fee.
Hanging fees vary based on how many pieces a member hangs, the size of the pieces, and whether or not an artist is an "Active" or "Non-Active" member. Active members commit to 7 hours of volunteer time during the month they participate in the Member Exhibit. Non-Active members do not volunteer time and pay a higher fee.
Members can purchase Membership Packages that allow them to hang one piece per month for a discounted rate. In addition to the per-piece hanging fees, artists can also choose to reserve a five foot wall section (also known as a Featured Artist section) where they can hang as many pieces as will fit.

The Sale of Artwork
Artists have the option of putting a price on their work, but this is not required at A/NT Gallery. As a non-profit gallery, we do not market the artwork for potential sale. Instead, our mission focuses on hosting exhibits for the benefit of the community, and supporting our membership with mentoring, education opportunities, and the hands-on gallery experience. If any artwork does sell, the gallery takes a 15% commission in order to cover the costs of bookkeeping and payment processing. The gallery also collects and pays the retail sales tax.
Member artists may show a limited number of prints or other art-related objects in the gift shop. Members must contribute seven hours volunteer time to show in the gift shop. The gallery takes 10% on all gift shop sales in order to cover the costs of bookkeeping and payment processing. Sales tax is not collected on gift shop sales and is the responsibility of the artists.
Depending on the structure of the exhibit, it may or may not be juried. Both non-members and members can submit their work to these shows. Entry fees and/or hanging fees may be applicable, but these do not constitute membership dues. Please consult the call for each special exhibit to learn more about how to participate in specific exhibits. Submitting to a call or hanging in these special exhibits does not qualify a member for membership.
