Call for Artists and Artisans:
Berkely Art Works
The Berkeley Arts Council seeks submissions from artists and artisans for an open jury call for the Berkeley Art Works co-op group. The Berkeley Art Works is located at 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, WV and is a project of the Berkeley Arts Council.
Openings are available for both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional artists. At this time we will consider all media including painting, photography, mixed media, glass, pottery, wood, basketry, fibre, or jewelry. We will also consider fabric wall hangings up to about 40-inches on a side.
Participating artists and artisans must become members of the Berkeley Arts Council, pay a monthly fee for display space and a 20% commission on sales, and agree to sit in the gallery 1-2 days per month. Co-op members also support the gallery in other ways, including exhibit installations and helping with events and promotional activities.
