July 6 – August 24, 2024

NEW Online Entry Forms: Entry forms must be filled out online no later than Tuesday, July 2 https://forms.gle/bce3WeyXjCyB3AJh8

Number and entry quantities have changed – see below.

The Walkers' Gallery invites artists to submit their work to the gallery’s Summer Show 2024.  

Theme:  The theme is open to interpretation and may be executed in any style, literal or symbolic, abstract and/or a reference to something personally meaningful.

The only content restrictions are that all work for this family friendly public venue must be apolitical, non-violent and G-rated! No nudity is allowed, even if it is tasteful and artistic.*

 Media:  All 2-D and 3-D media that can be safely hung on the walls or in the large windows are eligible to be submitted.  

• Number and size of entries: We flexibly suggest that artists bring up to one large (36" wide or larger) or up to two medium (20-36) or smaller works. While this is not a juried show, we reserve the right to limit the number of entries in order to equitably include as many artists as wish to enter.

While size is not a concern, we do have a weight limit of 30 lbs. per artwork. 

• Preparation and hardware: Pieces must come ready to hang with hardware installed as close to the top as possible to avoid the artwork hanging forward at an angle from the wall.   

• Labeling: You do not have to create a label for the wall; we will create uniform labels for all of the work.  However, please DO attach a secure label to the back of each artwork that includes your name, the title of the work, and the price. 

• Money matters:  There are no entry fees for the exhibit, but there is a limit of two entries per artist.

Art may be for sale or not for sale (NFS) If the work is not for sale please include an insurance value on your entry form. The gallery retains no commission for sales; any sales must be conducted directly between the artist and buyer. If sold, artworks must remain on the wall for the duration of the exhibit.


•  July 6 - Delivery:  Artwork should be brought to the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins Street on Saturday, July 6 from 10:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m.   

Aug. 9, 2024 – Artists’ Reception:  There will be a reception for the exhibit on Friday, Aug. 9 from 5:30-7 p.m. and we hope you will invite your friends and family.  There will be musical entertainment and refreshments.  It is also open to the public. 

• Aug. 24, 2024 - Pick Up: The exhibit will be on display through Aug. 23 with pick-up on Saturday, Aug. 24, 10:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. All work must remain on exhibit until the close of the show and unsold work must be picked up by the artist on Aug. 24. Sold work may also be picked up by purchaser on Aug. 24. Work may be picked up on Friday, Aug. 23 with prior arrangement with the Arts Coordinator.

* If you are uncertain as to whether your work is ‘appropriate’ or physically capable of being displayed, please e-mail ghatt@sanmarcostx.gov or just bring it on the Saturday delivery date. This is not a juried show—it is our intention to display all appropriate submissions—however, we do reserve the right to be selective if necessary.

We are excited about this exhibit and hope you will participate!
