Exhibition Details

  Art exhibitions rotate every two months. WHQR will host an opening reception and one additional reception on Fourth Friday nights. The artist(s) is/are expected to pay for 50% of the reception costs. The artist’s half is about $250 per show (2 receptions). The majority of the pieces must be available for purchase. WHQR will retain 35% of the sale price as a commission. If you would like to submit as a group, each person should submit individually and note in "suggestions/ideas" that you are a part of a group, noting other artists names/name of group.  Typical pricing for pieces in our gallery range from $40-$400, with occasional major pieces in the $1000-$2000 range. Depending on the work, our gallery sells anywhere from 2-25 pieces per show. At times, we have almost sold out a whole show. This varies wildly depending on how the art is received by the public.  If you have any questions about submitting your artwork, please email Katelyn Freund at webservices@whqr.org.
