GROUP & SOLO GALLERY EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITIES:

Exhibition opportunities include solo exhibitions, two-person shows, and group shows. Selected artists will participate in a Northville Art House sponsored exhibition. (The Art House currently sponsors nine to eleven exhibits a year, both juried and invitational.)  Upon review, the Northville Art House reserves the right to select all works exhibited at the Art House Gallery.  Once scheduled, the Art House provides the exhibiting artist(s) with publicity, postcards, hangs/installs the exhibit, handles  the sale of work, and provides an opening reception. The Art House charges a 35% commission on all sales. The duration of Art House exhibits is usually three to four weeks.

To submit work for consideration, please complete the Artist Application for Solo or Group Exhibition. Download the Artist Application here: Exhibition_Application

ART HOUSE EMERGING ARTIST WALL EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITIES:

The mission of the Northville Art House is simple:  we want to bring the best of the arts to our community through exhibits and education.  One way we do that is through our Emerging Artist Wall. 

The Northville Art House offers an exhibition wall, measuring 8’ x 8’, for emerging artists, or artists without significant exhibition experience, to gain the experience of showing their 2D work in a gallery setting. All artwork is required to be appropriately framed and properly wired or wrapped, ready-to-hang canvas.  (No saw tooth hangers.)  This exhibition wall also provides emerging artists with an opportunity to sell their work, therefore any included work is encouraged, but not required, to be for sale. The Art House charges a 35% commission on all sales. The duration of Emerging Artist exhibits is usually four weeks, but can run for up to eight weeks.
