1. Submit work to be in a show in the lower gallery: we have 8-10 shows per year in a variety of mediums. Single artist and group exhibits are welcome. Each show runs four to six weeks and features a "meet-the-artist", open house style reception.

Shows in the lower gallery are planned 1-2 years in advance.

3. Become a member of the Lapeer Art Association! This is for local artists who want to show their works multiple times per year. The Art Association operates the gift shop year round in Gallery 194 and has multiple shows in our upper gallery. For more information, please visit their website at

4. Please consider joining us at our Art on Nepessing Street festival! Artists can donate a piece for our juried silent auction and then set up a booth to display and sell their works. Donated pieces are also featured in downtown businesses for a few weeks before the event, so this is a great way to get your name out as an artist in the community!

If you have any more questions about showing at the Gallery, please don't hesitate to call us at 810-667-1495 during our business hours, 11 am - 6 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
