The Exchange Gallery's 2nd annual juried exhibition: The Future

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

Our first juried show in the summer of 2017, "The Melting Pot", drew artists from a dozen Pennsylvania counties. By changing the process to jurying from photos, we would like to attract from a much wider area, at least nationally.

What Makes this event different?

The Exchange Gallery is a project of the non-profit Exchange (, run by a committee of artist volunteers whose interests are to provide a venue through themed, open-call exhibitions and juried or invitational shows that offer exposure to ALL regional artists, regardless of age and level of experience. Our shows routinely draw professional artists, including university art professors, as well as their students, and amateurs ranging in age from 3 to 83. Gallery exhibitions are selected and scheduled by the Gallery committee and are generally on display for four to six weeks. Opening receptions are arranged in conjunction with other events in downtown Bloomsburg, especially Artspace Gallery openings, typically on Saturday evenings.

Copyright Policy

All artists maintain 100% copyright ownership; we give artists the option of not allowing photography of their work for our own promotion (posters and Web site).

Image Usage Rights

We will use them for jurying, for reproduction on printed posters, and for Web site and social media posts, unless instructed not to.

For this exhibition, the Exchange Gallery asks you to look ahead: What does "the future" mean to you?  You can look as narrowly or as broadly as you like -- dreams for your own life, flying cars, the world in the year 2025, 2050, 2500, or beyond.  We encourage artists of all ages and levels of experience to submit work that explores this theme, in each artist's interpretation.  All media accepted, 2-D and 3-D, including video and installation pieces.  Sale price on each piece as set by the artist; artist receives 80% of the sale price.  Our professional juror will choose the best pieces for the show and will choose prizewinners; prizes of $200, $100, and $50.
