CLICK HERE TO ENTER NOW  Entries close 4pm Friday 29 June 2018

2018 THEME
SEASONS
 is the theme for this year’s Members’ Exhibition. Any kind of season… a season at the theatre, a season of emotions, a season of ‘there’s a time for every purpose’. Get as silly or serious as you want!

We are only accepting either one large or up to two small works so choose your best work that has not yet been shown at GIGS Art Gallery.

NEW CALENDAR OPPORTUNITY
As part of our 10 year anniversary celebrations in 2019 we are producing our first GIGS Art Gallery calendar, giving our members a new opportunity to showcase their artwork in the community.

Calendar images will be of members’ works from our Seasons 2018 Members’ Exhibition, with 13 works being chosen from People’s Choice votes.

The new 2019 calendars will be available for pre-order at the Seasons 2018 exhibition and for sale at the Gallery Shop from November.

NOT A MEMBER?
Exhibition entry is free to all members of GIGS Art Gallery and we always welcome new members. Members must be paid up for the next year to be eligible to enter.
