The Desert Art Center invites local artists to submit artwork to our jury for review. If accepted, you can become a new Gallery Member, display and sell your work at the DAC. Please be aware that this is a co-operative gallery and members are expected to host the gallery one day a month as a minimum contribution and take part in its co-operative nature. This is Stage 1 of a two part application process, during which your art will initially be assessed as digital images. Before you start do read the Gallery Display rules on our website and choose the gallery display category for your application. 


Fees - There is a non refundable $20 jury application fee payable to onlinejuriedshows. Successful Gallery members are also required to pay an annual Gallery Hanging fee which is normally $50. This is payable to the DAC if you are accepted.


Stage 1 Entry – For the first stage, please follow the rules for digital submission here. As a new applicant, you may submit in only one category.  (Existing Gallery members may submit in a new section but please read the gallery display rules for requirements.) You are asked to submit between 6-10 digital images of your artwork. The title of each photo should contain the Title of the work, the medium and size.
