Opportunities for Artists


Drop Off: Monday, June 3rd at 9:00 AM Sharp!

Pick Up: Monday, July 1st 10:00 AM - 12 Noon




My Annual “ALL IN THE FAMILY & FRIENDS” show at the Port Jefferson Village Center is coming up very soon. As most of you know I love to have this exhibit to compare the artistic talent of artists & their family & friends. That includes your spouse, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, grandparents & especially those talented children & grandchildren, best friends & significant others. 


For now, I will be accepting one piece from you & one from as many family members or friends, etc. that you feel qualify. Later on, if there is room, I may be able to take more. 



This show is very popular & will fill up quickly, so if you’re interested in exhibiting in this show you must contact me, ASAP with name of artist, contact #s, title of art, medium, size & price & an IMAGE of each piece of art to reserve your spot in the show. Please price your artwork for selling, remember only 10% commission if sold. This is a very good venue for sales as thousands of art lovers come through Port Jefferson & always check out the art at the  Village Center. Many people coming into the Center are looking for local scenes, land & seascapes.

1. All work must be gallery ready & for sale. All mediums included except sculpture unless it is wired to hang & is lightweight.

2. All art must be either framed or gallery wrapped canvas, no staples showing.

3. Each piece of art must be wired on the back for hanging (no saw teeth) & labeled with all of your information on the back; your name, phone number, and all information about the artwork. All art must be clean & frames in good condition for hanging.

4. Art must be at least 8”x10” (frame size) and nothing larger than 60”X 70” 


There will be a $10 per piece charge & 10% commission if sold. Children 10 years old & younger $5. per piece.


Checks must be made out to Gay Gatta & mailed to 39 Clubhouse Court, Port Jefferson, 11777 and must be received no later than Wed.  May 24 to reserve your spot in the show. There may be a chance that I have room for more of your pieces so hold off sending your check until I let you know. Do not send cash. I will not be accepting payment at the drop off so make sure your checks are in by May 24.


I will need images of your work to create the poster which will be hung at the entrance to the Village Center & also for cards, social media & press release. I will need these images ASAP as there is a cut off date for ordering cards. As soon as I receive enough quality images from you, I will send them to Fran who will design the Poster for the show.  At that time if you are interested in purchasing a poster ($10) please let me know so Fran can make extras.


Please Do not sign up for this show if you cannot make the drop off & pickup dates & times. ( You may have a friend or family member drop off & pickup for you but please let me know.)



Looking forward to hearing from you & seeing your best work for some great sales
