Rules and Information
  • All items (resume, portfolio of images, application, and fee) must be received no later than 5:00pm, Friday, March 22, 2024.
  • You must live within reasonable driving distance of Clayton, as all art must be delivered and picked up in person. We do not accept shipped artwork.  
  • Applicants will be notified of their status in early April 2024. Selected applicants will be provided a contract detailing terms and conditions for exhibiting at the Clayton Center. A $35.00 exhibit fee ($25.00 for CVA members) is due at the time of execution of the contract. The exhibit fee is $200 for groups, such as a class, club, or art society.

Shows may be multi-person shows and the number of pieces for each artist will be determined by the Exhibits Committee.
  • If you had a show with us in 2023 or are scheduled for one in the first half of 2024, please do not apply for another show at this time; please wait at least a year to apply again.
