What to Expect

Exhibits are located in one of the three galleries located in the Takoma Park Community Center. They are thematically grouped and run for a period of two to three months. Selected artists are responsible for delivering their artwork, promoting the opening reception, and picking up their artwork at the end of the exhibition. There is no commission charged on any sales, and all work must remain on display until the end of the show.

The City will promote gallery events on the City of Takoma Park website, City TV, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and the Takoma Park Arts e-newsletter. Additional promotion efforts may include the distribution of fliers, brochures, and articles in the Takoma Park Newsletter.

Detailed information on available exhibit space can be found in our gallery brochure. The Suspended Space and Gallery Corridor are no longer available.

Guidelines and more specific requirements will be provided to artists selected for future exhibitions.
