Thank you for your interest in exploring representation by DISTRICT Arts, a new contemporary art gallery in Frederick, MD. We are very excited to begin artist recruiting and exhibition planning. The gallery opening is still several months away but there is much to do to prepare for the Grand Opening.

Not everyone who applies will be selected for representation. The gallery program is focused on contemporary work where the styles and techniques evoke the modern world through the dramatic use of color and form, reflect world influences and diversity, and challenge, inspire, entertain and educate.

2D work may be abstract or representational. Sculpture, Glass, Wood and Clay may each be functional, though they need not be. If you feel your work meets our criteria, we would be thrilled to review your application. (At this time, we are not accepting applications for Jewelry or Wearable Fiber.)

If you would like to receive a gallery information package prior to submitting your application, please email us using the CONTACT button.  (This package will include a sample artist contract and information on artist and gallery rights and obligations.)

You may want to prepare your images before starting the representation application.  Here are the requirements.  You will be asked to upload four high quality images that are representative of the range of your work. Image submission requirements are as follows:

  1. Recommended Dimensions: 1900 pixels on the longest side
  2. File Format: Save all images as Standard JPEG
  3. File Size: JPEGs should be under 2 MB in size
  4. Recommended Resolution: between 72 and 300 ppi
  5. Color space: Save images in RGB color space, preferably sRGB

For each image, you will be asked to indicate the estimated retail price you would require if the piece were for sale in the gallery.
