Exhibit Information

MCAC holds 8 - 10 exhibits each year including an exhibit of local high school artists, invitational exhibits (showing the work of individual artists), multi-media exhibits (open to members and non-members), and occasional specialty or themed exhibits.


Our first exhibit of each year is the Seven-up High School Exhibit open only to local high school student artists who are selected by their art teacher. 


Our Invitational or Group Exhibits are by application only and are open to all artists. Guidelines are as follows:


Artists of all media are invited to apply to show their artwork in an individual invitational exhibit. The Mattawoman Creek Art Center Gallery is spacious, light filled, and overlooks the Mattawoman Creek.


The Art Center's Artist Advisory Committe meets in August of each year to select applicants for the following two years.
Interested applicants should submit the following:


  • an artist statement and/or resume

  • 15-20 .jpg images which are representative of their work, to be sent via e-mail,  or a CD via regular mail.  Be sure the images are in .jpg format, and include title, medium, and the size of each original piece of art work; and

  • a printable (.doc) or printed listing of the images.

  • A self-addressed stamped envelope if you are sending your application/CD by mail and wish to have it returned to you.

For applicants who are accepted for exhibition, there is a $300 gallery fee due at contract signing to cover the cost of postcards, postage and the opening reception.
