Entry Guidelines

Each artist may submit up to five (5) pieces of 2-D art such as painting, photography, prints, drawing/illustration, or mixed media. Work must be ready to hang; details will be provided.

Display fee: There is no fee to submit an application; however, a display fee of $5 per artist will be collected for artists whose work is accepted (submitted at time of drop-off) to help offset gallery costs. This fee is per artist, not per piece, and will be the same for all exhibitors.

Drop-off dates for accepted work will be announced. All accepted pieces must be hand-delivered to the store on specified days and choice of time slots (details to come). Please contact the committee ahead of time if other arrangements are needed.

Waiver of liability: While the Co-op and Honest Arts Committee will take all possible precautions for the protection and care of artwork for the duration of the show, we do not insure your work for you. Each exhibitor will be required to sign a simple liability waiver upon drop-off. By signing this waiver, you agree to abide by exhibit guidelines.

Exhibit dates: An informal opening reception will be scheduled, details to come. All artists are encouraged to attend.

Gallery hours are the regular store hours, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The gallery is located in the Co-op’s hallway corridor to the right of the food services department just beyond the restroom area. HWFC is located at 100 Watervliet Avenue in Albany. Visit the store website at for more information.

Sales: Artists may choose to have their work for sale or NFS; if available for purchase, no price changes can be made after acceptance. Gallery visitors will have access to printed contact information and be asked to contact artists individually regarding purchase. Under no circumstances will HWFC handle any aspect of sales; buyers and artists are to work privately and abide by the agreed show dates before removing any work. For this show, 100% of the sale proceeds will belong to the artist.


The Honest Arts Committee aspires to engage imagination, stimulate conversation, and strengthen connection in the store and community by coordinating, promoting, and encouraging arts in the Co-op.
