Small Exhibits at WAG

When several WAG artists want to exhibit their work together, they can send a proposal to the Small Exhibit Review Committee, consisting of Donna Massano, Janet Gendreau, and Jim Constantine.  The proposal should include: 

  • the names of the artists to be included

  • the kinds of artwork to be included

  • the number of pieces of artwork to be exhibited

  • possible opening and closing dates

  • things about the artists that make them qualified to offer a WAG-sponsored exhibit 

  • willingness to provide publicity in addition to being posted in the WAG website

  • willingness to provide gallery attendants during the exhibit

The Review Committee will approve Small Exhibit proposals based initially on the qualifications of the artists who propose to exhibit their work.  The qualifications that they consider include:

What is their exhibition history? Have they taken part in any juried exhibits? Have they won awards? Have they ever been invited to exhibit?

No registration fee will be charged by WAG.   WAG will collect 25% of the sales of any artwork in the exhibit.  Proposals should be sent to the Small Exhibit Review Committee at info@westportartgroup.com.
