Gallery Shows

We host quarterly “Whet Your Palette” receptions at the opening of each new exhibit to celebrate our new artists and works.  They are free, open to the public, and are sure to delight! The Artful Lawyer does not take commission on sales of work in the Gallery proper — sales of work are conducted primarily between the artists and their customers.

Current Exhibit

2019 Applications

July 24 – October 9: Inside Out — Selfies
We are living in a selfie-obsessed world and this is your chance to focus and craft your own narrative. Artists may use any medium to represent an original selfie and may represent that self in multiple pieces.  As an added twist, artists can pair up and depict each other.  Because after all, how we see ourselves can differ drastically from the way those close to us see us!  Selfies will be exhibited alongside any other representations.
