Membership Information


Artists' Gallery is a partnership of professional visual artists who cooperatively administer, staff and exhibit in our Lambertville, New Jersey location. Our members are well established and regionally represented artists who have been selected for membership by jury.

Since its inception in 1995, the high quality of work and variety of artistic styles has earned Artists' Gallery a solid reputation among discerning collectors, designers and art critics as a showcase for viewing and purchasing original works of art.

Artists' Gallery is committed to a $0 profit policy. Each member gets 100% of proceeds from the sale of his/her work.

Every artist has a month-long two-person "featured artist" show once every year. The featured artists share our largest room - Salon A - and are responsible for the publicity and reception for their show. Artists choose their show partners, and are randomly assigned an exhibition month between April and November. The remaining gallery walls are divided among the other members, also on a rotating monthly basis. December, January, February and March are designated for group shows.

For further questions and information, please contact the gallery at: (609) 397-4588, email:, or just stop by the gallery during normal business hours and talk to the artist who is gallery sitting that day.

To Apply for Admission:

Submissions are accepted the Thur-Sun (11am-6pm) immediately prior to the first Monday of the month. The Jury process takes place at our monthly Monday evening meeting. You will be contacted via email or phone with the results. As storage space is limited, we ask that you pick-up your work during gallery hours later that week.

Application to the gallery implies that you are ready to exhibit work in a professional environment and agree to the member obligations. The gallery often has a waiting list, though openings may be filled on a “best fit” rather than “first-come” basis. We recommend that prospective artists attend one or more opening receptions at the gallery prior to application to introduce themselves to other members.

When delivering your work to the gallery, please include:

  • Two to five pieces of original artwork framed as you would frame them to hang at a gallery. Note: storage space is limited at the gallery, so small or medium size pieces would be preferable - we cannot accept pieces over 30" in size. It would be helpful if you deliver your art bubblewrapped or boxed or some form of protection.
  • Up to twenty prints of your work/portfolio
  • An artists bio/resume/CV
  • Any supporting materials that will help us to learn more about you - the information you provide about yourself helps in the decision making process. Feel free to include experience and skills not directly related to art—the more information you provide, the better.
