ARTISTSImportant Dates & Forms

In an attempt to create easily accessible forms for all of our artists, we have adapted the contracts into fillable PDFs. Each artist is required to fill out one Annual Contract and an updated W-9 per calendar year. Once the Annual Contract is filled out and on record,  artists participating in subsequent shows will then only need to complete the Show Agreement form for each show. All shows require artists to fill out the Show Agreement form and the Artwork Labels form. Please remember to attach the labels to the back of your submitted work.

Solo Shows

This year, the galleries in Yester House will be transformed into individually curated exhibitions featuring artists for our Solo Shows. The first installment of solo shows will be on view in May and June, and the second installment will run from late August to early October. If you are interested in applying for a Solo Show, please click on the link below! If you are not a member and would like to join or renew please visit “Join and Give” tab on our website!

Once your application has been approved, please fill out all forms and return via email, regular mail or when you come to install your pieces. Please note that the forms have changed a little bit.
