Call to artists: BAG’s spring jury now open

Want to become an exhibiting member of the Brandon Artists Guild? Applications are open now for the spring jury.

All flavors and styles of fine art and crafts are welcome. Judging criteria includes originality, impact, clarity, craftsmanship, consistency of style and quality, presentation, and marketability. The jury consists of BAG member-artists and non-artists with experience across media.

New exhibiting members are also asked to help staff the gallery. It’s a great opportunity to meet other artists, make creative connections and learn what makes a cooperative arts organization tick. And with a commitment of just one or two days per month the gallery commission can be reduced to just 20-30%.

Membership requirements:

Applicant must be a Vermont resident at least six months per year.

Submissions must be original work completed within the past two years. You may include a small percentage of reproductions or limited editions for consideration.

Items assembled from commercial kits or parts, made from commercially available plans or cast from pre-manufactured molds are not eligible. The Guild reserves the right to make the final determination of acceptability.

Apply online at by midnight on Sunday, Feb. 20. Selected candidates will be invited to present their work in person on Monday, March 14.
