    ACG's Members' Show highlights and recognizes a wide range of talented members, bringing together a dynamic cross-section of artists, diverse in medium and degree of establishment. Members range from student and emerging artists to established and international artists, from painters and photographers to sculptors and mixed media artists. ACG sees this show as an opportunity for exposure, promotion, and appreciation of all who have invested their time and energy in making our gallery what it is today.

    This year for our Members' Show, we are focusing on the concept "Small Works, Big Impact" and encouraged all artists to submit a work of art that is 12" x 12" or smaller. This small size suggestion is due to the fact that we have over 250 members of ACG (yay!) and limited wall space available at the gallery to showcase members' artwork. As you may have seen from past Members' Shows, 150+ artworks are hung salon-style (floor to ceiling). By submitting small works, artists are helping us to showcase as many members as possible. As an incentive to submit a small work of art, we have adjusted our awards as follows:
    - All artists who submit a work of art that is 12" x 12" or smaller will be eligible to win the "Small Works, Big Impact" Best in Show award of $200
    - All artists who submit a work of art that is larger than 12" x 12" (up to 24" x 24") will be eligible to win the Best in Show award of $100
