About the Person Senior Center


The first floor glass cases can display various

sized baskets, cradles, jewelry, glass, small and

sculpture pieces and are kept locked at all times.

Limited in space, we hope to feature the work

of 10-12 basket weavers, each with 1-2 pieces.

The top shelves are tall and can be used to display

cradles and medium sized baskets, etc. The bottom

shelves are reserved for smaller pieces such as

glass-art, small baskets, jewelry and beadwork.


The second-floor gallery space will beautifully

display 10-12, 2-D artists, depending on the

size and number of pieces submitted.

There are high ceilings with a vertical

wire-hanging system. All 2-D art must

be wired on the back and ready to hang.


Artists need to provide labels for each piece of art.

A common size is approximately 2”x 3”, or the size

of a typical business card. Printed or neatly hand-written labels are both acceptable. Each label should include your name, contact information,

title (optional), description, and purchase price.

If you do not wish to sell your piece, just write NFS (not for sale).


All photographs and paintings must be framed,

unless you have wrapped-edge canvas pieces.
