Be a part of the 2015 Westbeth Annual!

Our annual end-of-year show is an opportunity to show the larger community all of the great work that is created within our walls every year. We are currently accepting submissions for this year’s show which will be December 12th through January 2nd. Space will be limited, so only one piece per artist will be accepted.

All submissions must meet the following criteria:

• The artist must be a permanent resident of Westbeth

• The artwork must have been created in the last five years and be of professional quality. All artwork will be vetted by an outside curator to ensure it meets professional standards.

• The artist or their representative must be able to deliver the artwork to the Westbeth Gallery on either December 5th or 6th and pick it up on January 3rd. No exceptions.

If you would like to participate (and we hope you do!) please submit your information by following the link AND email a photograph of the work to
