 Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. --Scott Adams

Exhibit in the Photolab Gallery

How to Apply
The Photolab Gallery shows work by eight to ten photographers per year. We are interested in showcasing work by artists working in every medium of photography. We look at new portfolios continuously. If you would like to be considered for exhibit, contact us to submit your portfolio using the guidelines below.

First Steps
Most photographers contact us by email to set up an portfolio review. Portfolios can also be submitted by mail in the form  of cds or dvds, slides.

Before applying, please read this page and the main gallery page. We suggest you visit the Gallery in person to get a feel for our space and style and take a look the current work on exhibit,

Portfolio Review Appointments
Portfolios are usually reviewed on Saturday mornings by appointment only. Please call or email Andrea McLaughlin to make an appointment.

What we're Looking For
The Photolab Gallery exhibits photography in all its forms. Take a look at the exhibit archive for an idea of what we have shown in the past. We love to exhibit photographers who have a solid body of work for a exhibit as a solo show on all three walls that comprise our gallery space. If you have a concept for a group show we'd love to see that too.

Once a year we produce an a group show based around a single theme.

Gallery Services
The Gallery provides exhibiting artists with a professional display environment, design,
production and distribution of the exhibit announcement cards, a wine and cheese reception for the artist and publicity including a web page featuring an interview with the exhibiting artist and a few images from the exhibit itself. We prepare and distribute a press release and mailing to our list. The photographer hangs his/her own show, and deals directly with potential buyers.

Fees and Commissions

We do not take a commission of any kind. We refer all buyers directly to the artist.

Shows run 6 weeks per artist.
