A Tradition of Creative Encouragement
Our roots as a community gallery run deep. Guided by "Bean" Backus's example of fostering the talent of fellow artists at all levels of skill, we organize two annual juried competitions each year for amateurs and professionals alike.

Check out the entry details and deadlines, download applications, and watch for announcements of artists' works accepted.
