The North Hills Art Center supports local artists in a variety of ways – from providing a vibrant gallery and community for showcasing artwork in our many exhibitions throughout the year, holding a private show (emerging artists), the opportunity to be an artist and educator; and to create during Open Studio Sessions.
By becoming a Member of the Art Center, artists can enjoy lower fees when entering shows and taking classes; enjoy discounts at several local art supply & framing shops and be one of the first to know about upcoming shows/events through our email newsletter. Membership also qualifies the artist to free entry in our Artisan Markets (held once or twice a year) where you can showcase your work to the many patrons who seek out our Artisan Markets.
