Artists Guidelines

The Gallery On The Square is now accepting new original works for commissioned sale. If you are a regional artist, please read through the following and contact us with any questions you may have.


  • The Gallery only displays work of artists from or residing in Kentucky and Tennessee.
  • Artists must complete the Guild Member Application to be submitted with work.
  • Paintings must be framed OR if on a stretched canvas, the edges of the canvas must be painted as though the artwork continued around all edges.  Framed pieces must be ready to be hung.
  • The Standards committee will meet to determine if the pieces are suitable for display at the Gallery. Gallery reserves the right of refusal of any work submitted for display. Once the Standards committee has met, the director will notify the artist if his work has been accepted.
  • Upon acceptance, a liability form/contract must be completed and submitted along with the biography page.
  • Rotation of work is expected throughout the year. Any work left more than two (2) years without any contact between the Gallery and the artist will become the sole property of the Gallery.
  • Artist agrees to participate in the Gallery’s layaway policy.
  • The Gallery takes a 40% commission for the handling of the work with the artist receiving 60%.
  • Artists are paid monthly.
