Handmade Market is Union Street Gallery’s much anticipated annual exhibit of local and regional artisan goods.

We encourage any promotional materials be included with the work you will have for sale.

· Up to 5 medium (18 x 24) pieces of wall art, or more smaller pieces that are an equivalent use of wall space
· These are maximum amounts, you can bring in less, or none of either category

Artists who are interested in participating should be encouraged to submit samples (around 5 images) of their work to Make sure the title of your email is Handmade submission. All submission must be received by Oct 25.
We will let you know by Oct 28 if your work will be included in the market or not.
All work must be for sale and priced $2,000 or less. Most pieces that sell are in the $25-50 range. Works $300 or less seem to be the bulk of art sales throughout the year.

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.
