Join us at Crossroads Art Center
In addition to having a solo or group show in one of Crossroads' galleries, you can become a part of the vibrant Crossroads community.
BECOME A RESIDENT ARTIST
Artists working in the fine arts and crafts are eligible to become resident artists at Crossroads. Acceptable craft forms include ceramics, textiles, jewelry, various types of sculpture, glasswork, and more.
Artists must submit five pieces of work, a résumé, and a complete artist-in-residence application to the jury committee for review. If accepted, the applicant is classified as an artist-in-residence and is able to rent a gallery/studio space or a wall space to exhibit their work. The application fee is a non-refundable $25. Artists who are not selected are encouraged to apply again in six months.
Vacancies are rare at Crossroads. Gallery/studio spaces rent from $185 to $320 per month, with a commission of 15% on sales. Please check with staff for space availability.
Wall spaces at Crossroads rent from $45 to $130 per month, with a commission of 15% on sales. Please check with staff for space availability.
BECOME A VIRTUAL ARTIST
Artists who are not in residence at Crossroads are able to show their work virtually on the Crossroads website.
To be juried for inclusion on the Crossroads website, submit five images of your work and your artist statement (or your website address if this information can be found there).
The annual fee for inclusion as a virtual artist is $100. Virtual artist listings appear in the artist index and can include up to four images and an artist statement along with contact information. Changes to the online listing will be billed at $15 for text updates and $25 for photo changes.
