Now Accepting Applications for 2024 Exhibitions

Notice of Changes at 610 Arts Collective Effective June 2023

The 610 Arts Collective will be initiating a change in the gallery in late May 2023.  The current positioning of the Exhibition space and "Gallery Shop" space will be flip-flopped in June 2023. 


After four years of watching human behavior in the space, we expect that this move will be beneficial to increase traffic, decrease theft of small items and  most of all, offer a deeper experience between the user and the exhibiting artist in a more-private space for reflection.  There will be upgrades made in the current gallery shop space for the switch including upgraded lighting and additional wall space with a suspended featurette in front of the main window (with opportunities to showcase a work on both sides).  If you are interested in applying for a 2023 exhibition slot in the "new" space, head here.

  • Work must be suitably framed and ready for hanging.

    • All work, glass, and frames must be clean, undamaged and ready for a show. We reserve the right to refuse hanging dirty work.

    • No wire clip frames/frameless clips will be accepted.

    • No canvas boards with sticky tabs as hanging mechanisms will be accepted

    • Wrapped canvas pieces with finished sides will be accepted, but sides must be clean and/or intentionally finished ---  and pieces should have hanging wires attached on arrival.

    • Photos:  photos on any media (metal, canvas, archival paper, acrylic, etc.) will be accepted -- provided they fit within the size restrictions and are clean and hang-ready.

    • If at all possible, please try to avoid use of gold frames for group shows such as this -- they are very hard to group and as a result, will often find themselves in an isolated space in the gallery.

  • Drawings, watercolors and pastels must be under Plexiglass or glass. If an artist opts to not have work under glass, it is under their own risk and work will not be insured for damage.

  • SALES All work will be for sale. 60% proceeds from sales will go to the artist and 40% proceeds will go to 610 Gallery, Ridgway Chautauqua Society.

  • FEES: $25.00 entry fee per piece, maximum submission: 2 pieces.

    • Any profit from fees help cover annual 610 gallery costs such as electricity, light bulbs, gas, signage, contracted personnel, etc.  This exhibition is a fundraiser for the gallery.  The gallery is co-run by two 501c3 Nonprofit Arts organizations who collectively provide over 600 programs a year to our region -- and this exhibition is just one of those 600 programs.

    • Fees for this show are first used to help cover cash prizes, marketing and promotion and the 6+ full days of labor that it takes to prep for, and repair-after the show.

    • Entry fees are paid through the entry forms. Credit cards may be called-in or processed when artwork is dropped off.

    • Fees are nonrefundable on accepted works.

    • There are no handling fees but artists are responsible for shipping costs, if any
