Space in the gallery/shop is limited. All new applications are reviewed by the Art Guild Jury before being accepted for membership. Please see separate PDF document: AGP Jury Criteria for complete information regarding this application process.
New Applications info:
• Along with this application form, please email: 3-to-5 photos that present individual examples of your work, (low resolution for web photos are recommended). Have each photo include a description noting title, medium, size, and date created. Also attach a bio, artist statement and (optional) exhibition record. If applying to exhibit in more than one art form, include a separate set of photos, artist statement, and exhibition record for each category.
• Your information will be forwarded to the Art Guild Jury, and we’ll get back to you soon. PLEASE NOTE: APPLICANTS MAY BE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT WORK IN PERSON IN A FOLLOW-UP REVIEW PROCESS.
• In addition to the $50 annual membership fee, Member Commissions and Exhibit Fee are as follows: AGP members pay 30% commission on all sales, and members pay a $10 per month fee to have work in the gallery & shop. The $10 fee does not apply to months when a member opts to not have work in the gallery/shop. The Art Guild is an all-volunteer artist co-op, with artist members staffing the shop. This is a volunteer commitment from active members for two 4-hour shifts per month. The Guild collects and pays sales tax for its artist members, and there is a separate member category for supporters who do not exhibit.
• The Art Guild is advantageously located in the heart of the downtown art and restaurant district and participates in all Paducah events. We rotate featured artists every month with each month presenting a new 2-D and 3-D artists in prominent display. In addition, The Art Guild has several other special events during the year. The Gallery/Shop is open Monday-Saturday from 10 am-6 pm, and Sunday from 1-5. Membership meetings are held bi-monthly.
