Call For Artists
Berkeley Art Works 10th Anniversary Members' Exhibit
In 2013, the Berkeley Arts Council opened its first brick-and-mortar location at 116 North Queen Street. To give it a unique identity, the space was titled the “Berkeley Art Works.” Since 2013, the organization has presented nearly eighty exhibitions featuring the work of local artists. And through nationally promoted invitations, visitors to the small gallery have enjoyed seeing the work of artists from dozens of states.
To recognize the contributions of the artists who are currently members of the Berkeley Arts Council, they are invited to participate in the Anniversary Members Exhibit, on display from June 28 through July 29 at the Berkeley Art Works.
Members enrolled for 2023, working in any medium, 2D, 3D or crafts, may participate in the exhibit. Artists or friends of the arts may join or renew online at berkeleyartswv.org/join-us/. In addition to participating in members exhibits, members enjoy a 10% discount on purchases in the Art Works gallery, and registration for regularly scheduled classes and workshops.
To participate in the Anniversary exhibit, deliver one or two pieces of your work to the Berkeley Art Works, Wednesday through Friday, 11am-5pm June 21-23, and 11-4 on Saturday, June 24. Note: You can also join at the gallery when you deliver your artwork. There is no entry fee other than membership dues.
The exhibit is not juried; however, work must be properly framed or otherwise professionally presented and ready for display. Two-dimensional work must be wired for hanging (no saw tooth hangers, please). Three-dimensional fine art and fine craft are welcome and encouraged and must be professionally presented. An identification tag must be attached to each piece, including the artist’s name, title of the work and price if it is for sale. The Berkeley Arts Council will retain a 30% commission on sales of work during the exhibit.
The exhibit will be open to the public during Berkeley Art Works business hours, which are currently 11am-5pm Wednesday through Friday, and 11am-4pm on Saturday. The exhibit will be promoted to the local press, as well as on our Web site and Facebook page. Please direct questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 304-620-7277.
The Berkeley Art Works, a project of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans. The Berkeley Arts Council is on the Web at https://www.berkeleyartswv.org.

The exhibit is on display through June 24, 2022. Berkeley Art Works gallery hours are Wednesday-Friday, 11-5; Saturday, 11-4. We are also open late on the First Friday of each month for the Downtown Art Walk.
