Select artists may be chosen to display their work on a long-term basis within the Gem Center for the Arts in any of our rotating display areas. Spaces range in size and time frame, and we will collaborate with you to determine the best fit for your work.


Artwork on exhibit must be available for purchase. Catalyst Arts Collaborative will handle sales inquiries on your behalf, and will receive a commission of 25%, of which 10% will be donated to our Art Start fund. This fund benefits (y)our community by providing scholarships and paid opportunities for working artists.

Submit your application to be considered and we will contact you as we fill our schedule.


We host open-house events at the Gem Center for the Arts on the 3rd Thursday of each month, in addition to large-scale events throughout the year.

If you'd like to be on our invite list to participate as an artist vendor, please share a little about yourself with a short application.
