September Membership Show
IT’S SHOW TIME!
September 9 – October 1, 2021
ANA Gallery @ the Rogers Experimental House
It’s time for the September Membership Show. So let get ready to hang.
The ANA Members Exhibition is open to all current members of Artists of Northwest Arkansas (ANA). This is a public family-oriented exhibition held in the ANA Gallery and throughout the Rogers Experimental House (RXH) facility. This includes the lobby, the glass galleries by the entrance and the common area in the large room. Both the ANA Gallery and the RXH use a hanging system so all works must be ready to hang. There will be an Artist Reception for the show and the exhibition will be open for viewing during regular ANA Gallery business hours. At the close of the show the members are required to pick up their art work on the days specified or make arrangements for someone to do so for them. Artworks for sale in the ANA Members Exhibit are subject to a 20% commission unless otherwise noted. The ANA Members Exhibit is a volunteer exhibit so we hang at your own risk.
Our opening party for the show will be September 9, the same night as the Rogers Art on the Bricks. There will be lots going on all through the downtown area. We will have food, music, drinks, art, and an opportunity to visit with friends. We ask that you wear your mask for the event.

Artwork Sign-In and Sign-Out: You must sign your artworks IN and OUT on the Show Register in the ANA Gallery on the delivery and pick up dates specified in this document.
Ready to Hang: Artwork need to be wired with eye hooks or d-rings. Heavy pieces require 2 hanging brackets so make sure you use strong eye hooks or d-rings for hanging. NO saw-tooth hangers permitted.
(NOTE: Please use metal wire – not plastic coated wire which tends to stretch. Glass is accepted but not recommended.)
Artwork Sold: If an artwork is sold, the buyer is allowed to take the artwork on purchase. The artist has the opportunity to add a replacement artwork within 48 hours (or notify ANA for an extension) with a new $10 entry fee. If no replacement is supplied within the 48 hours ANA will select a new artwork for the show.
Sales: All sales are in cash or credit card. Sales are made through the ANA Gallery credit card processing. Tax and fees are included in the sale and handled by the ANA Gallery. A check will be sent to the artist within a month after the sale less their 20% commission.
Artwork Pick-Up Dates: Each artist is responsible for picking up their artwork and arranging for someone to pick-up their artwork on the days specified. Artwork can not be removed before the pick-up dates without authorization by ANA show coordinators. Artwork has to be signed out.
