One outside juror and the Northwind curatorial staff person will determine which artists, who submit to the Artist Showcase are accepted annually.

Juror for 2019: Bruce Cody, from Scottsdale, Arizona, is a full-time working artist. He also has 17 years of experience as a university art instructor and has been represented in prestigious national galleries, with more than 25 one-man shows. He has been a gallery owner in the second-largest art market in America (Santa Fe, NM) and has his work in the permanent collection of over 30 museums.


Northwind Arts Center’s Artist Showcase program invites artists to apply to be represented in the Artist Showcase for 2019.  Artists 16 years of age or older, living within Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula, are eligible for submission to the Artist Showcase. New and emerging artists are encouraged to submit, as well as artists who have previously been juried into the Showcase and into Northwind shows, and those who are established and have had solo or group exhibits.

24 two-dimensional artists and 8 three-dimensional artists will be offered representation in the Artist Showcase, with 8 waitlisted 2D artists and 6 waitlisted 3D artists.



All artists, working in any medium, are encouraged to apply -- painting, photography, sculpture, art jewelry, glass, wood, ceramic, printmaking, etc. Eligibility is open to all media except printed reproductions and cards.

Artist Showcase provides an alternative to a cooperative gallery setting by providing an ongoing professional exhibit space in Northwind Arts Center. Northwind’s showcase encourages excellence in art as the artist is presented in a curated show, hung and rotated monthly by Northwind. The artist is not required to staff the exhibit space; and the artist takes away 70% of the sale price of their art. Northwind provides jurying of artists for acceptance into Showcase, trained volunteer staffing, as well as a prime downtown location with professional lighting in exchange for a marketing fee of $50 per month from each accepted artist.
