The Exhibition Committee reviews art submissions approximately twice a year, in June and November, and will contact artist(s) as promptly as possible with their decision.

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 be wrapped or with painted sides on a ready-to-hang canvas.  (No sawtooth 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 seven to eight weeks.
