In celebration of our Members & Teaching Artists, we are proud to present the 2024 Members & Teaching Artists exhibition from March 18 – April 20, 2024. All current members and teaching artists are invited to show one piece completed between 2022-2024 and not previously exhibited at Main Line Art Center. The maximum width and height of the piece can not exceed 2.5 ft (30 inches) (including the frame if applicable). There will be no exceptions to the size limit. All 2-D work must be framed (canvases do not need to be framed), securely wired and ready to hang or it will not be exhibited. All mediums are welcome and encouraged! If you are a current member or teaching artist your work will be accepted into the show. Artwork must be dropped off at the Art Center on Tuesday, March 12 or Wednesday, March 13. Due to the large amount of artists in the show, we can’t make special accommodations for drop off. You must drop off your work during open hours (9 AM – 9 PM) on the dates listed above. Your work must be ready to hang and clearly labeled on the back with your name, name of piece, medium, dimensions and price. If your work is for sale, the gallery works on a commission of 60% to the artist and 40% to the Art Center. Membership must be current by the date of artwork drop off.

This year’s prize juror is Chase Dougherty, Gretchen Hupfel Curator of Contemporary Art at the Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington, DE. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Sonoma State University and a Masters of Fine Arts in Museum Exhibition Planning and Design from University of the Arts. She has over a decade of professional arts experience within arts organizations, providing key knowledge and technical expertise to the success of projects through research, writing, development, and design. She has been an Adjunct Liberal Arts Instructor at Delaware College of Art and Design and was invited to present at the 2022 Society of Environmental Graphic Design Academic Summit on her research and collected data on visitor interpretation in contemporary arts spaces. As both an exhibition designer and a contemporary art curator, she aims to immerse the two fields in order to create engaging content that both authentically showcases artist and empowers visitors alike.

Awards will be given during a reception on Saturday, March 23rd from 4 -7 PM. Artwork must be dropped off at the Art Center on Tuesday, March 12 or Wednesday, March 13. Due to the large amount of artists in the show, we can’t make special accommodations for drop off. You must drop off your work during open hours (9 AM – 9 PM) on the dates listed above.
