Union Street Gallery seeks submissions that celebrate the intersection of art and music. Art can be inspired by music, instruments are designed objects, art and music can combine to create a hybrid art form. This juried exhibit will happen in conjunction with work from juror, Joe Rauen. Joe is an artist and musician who creates musical art objects, playable sculptures, truly one-of-a-kind instruments.

 Jurors: Joe Rauen & John Gutierrez

Call: Seven DEADLINE |July 20, 2019

Every year, Union Street Gallery selects a theme for an exhibit that welcomes artists of all levels. This exhibit allows us to celebrate artists of all levels especially those that are part of our local community. This exhibit also functions as a fundraiser for the gallery. Seven asks participating artists to incorporate seven into the work in some way. Some possible ways of meeting the theme could be using seven colors, incorporating seven of the same thing, etc. Be creative in how you incorporate the theme of seven, you are not limited to these examples.




Union Street Gallery utilizes an exhibition committee, determined by the director and studio artists, to make programming decisions. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a show, we encourage you to do so. This information will be kept on file and reviewed by the exhibition committee. You should NOT expect to hear back from us unless we are interested in the show or want to incorporate your work into other planned shows. Please complete the following form as a proposal for curated shows. Keep in mind we tend to have group shows, and very few solo shows. You can also send a link to your website as a solo artist. We maintain a record of this information. Curated show proposals and personal websites should both be sent to


Review our calls for art. These group shows are juried and curated throughout the year on a regional and national basis. Participating in a juried exhibit is the best way to build a relationship with USG. We only accept submission through our Submittable website. Emailed or mailed submissions for these shows will NOT be accepted. Payments must also be handled through the website.
We occasionally have open calls where anyone can participate, but most shows are juried. Pay attention to the details in our calls for art.
