Arts Clayton Gallery is dedicated to promoting the work of local Georgia Artists. Our artists range from professional, established artists to emerging artists. We are always looking for, and meeting with, artists interested in exhibiting their work at the Arts Clayton Gallery.
Arts Clayton Gallery is a retail art gallery. All works exhibited are original works of art, and for sale.
Our curators meet directly with the artists themselves to review their portfolio of work. At a curator's appointment, please bring examples of your current work, portfolio and bio/artist statement. We do not meet with artist agents or other interested parties.

Call for Artwork
To be included in an Arts Clayton exhibit, exhibiting artists are invited to bring work, as it relates to the theme, on the Saturday prior to the exhibit opening, dates to be announced.
Work is accepted between 10 AM and 1 PM (SHARP!). As we begin hanging the show at 1:00 PM, regrettably we cannot accept work after that point. We can accept work earlier than Saturday - call us to make arrangements.
Only original work, created in the last 3 years, and suitable for viewing by all audiences will be exhibited. Each piece of work may be exhibited at Arts Clayton Gallery once per 18 month period. All artwork must be available for sale.
Please see current calendar for upcoming shows.
Presentation of Artwork
All pieces must be properly framed with hanging wire (no clips). Frames must be in good condition. Works on canvas must be framed unless "gallery wrapped," with sides finished (no visible staples). Pieces not properly framed, complete with hanging wire, will not be included in the exhibit.
Artwork must be labeled on the back with artist's name, the piece's title, and the correct selling price.
Pieces that are improperly framed, in scratched frames, or unlabeled will not be included in an exhibit.
The artist will provide price lists for all works. The artist determines the price(s) of his/her piece(s). The artist agrees to a 35% commission for Arts Clayton - please include the commission in the price. Arts Clayton Gallery pays the artist's commission(s) the middle of the month following the sale of the work. Arts Clayton Gallery will collect applicable sales tax.
Artist accepts all risk and is responsible for obtaining necessary insurance. Arts Clayton, Inc. accepts no liability expressed or implied for artwork exhibited at the gallery or other sanctioned locations.
Arts Clayton reserves the right to photograph work for Arts Clayton publicity and for its web site.
Artists are encouraged to assist in the marketing of their work by informing collectors and others where their work is available for viewing.
The Arts Clayton Gallery receives numerous requests for commissioned work. The artist agrees to pay Arts Clayton Gallery a 35% commission on all referrals or commissioned work.
As a non-profit community gallery, we are here and able to do what we do through the gracious support of our artists, our patrons, and our members. We thank you for your support!
