Juror: John Boyd Martin
John Boyd Martin has established himself as one of the most accomplished portrait artists in the entire country. His paintings now hang in over 75 cities across the world, from Dublin, Ireland to Miyazaki, Japan to the Pentagon. What has made him so popular is a certain realism with which he paints. Born in 1936 and raised in the small town of Ottawa, Kansas, directly across the street from the campus of Ottawa University, Mr. Martin witnessed life at its most vibrant. As a boy, his impressions of the honesty and the work ethic of the Midwest, combined with those of campus life, have been instrumental in giving his work a down-to-earth feel that captures the essence of his subject in a very unique and dramatic manner.

Call For Artists
We're always looking to up our game so we're always on the prowl for exciting and emerging artists!
The process is easy and we're here to hold your hand and encourage you through it. We’ll partner you with a mentor for the first few months to help you learn how to display and market your work.
Here’s how it works:
- Contact Debbie Stone using the form at this link.
- She’ll ask you to submit 5 pieces of your artwork for our jury of artists to evaluate.
- Once you’re approved, we’ll set up a time to set up your display!
Since we’re a member owned and operated business you’ll need to be involved in working a few shifts at the gallery every month (don’t worry, we’ll train you). We’ll also ask you to roll up your sleeves and get involved in helping to do a few other things around the gallery. Maybe marketing, merchandising, social media or perhaps working on our presentation or art display committees.
The cost to join is a very affordable $60/month and you get 70% of everything you sell! You’ll be listed here on our website and we have a web guru who can help you get a site of your own up and running if you need it.
We promote art education in the community by teaching, mentoring, scholarships & much more!
We provide workshops in all mediums conducted by nationally and local art experts!
Juried Art Show
