Artwork must be recent, no larger than 40 inches in any direction, and cannot have previously been exhibited in a DAG-sponsored exhibit. If you are not yet a member and are interested in participating in the 2022 Members’ Showcase, please visit https://durhamartguild.org/membership/ to learn more about the levels and benefits of membership. DAG membership is open to all artists and art enthusiasts (not just Durham residents) and we strive to make membership accessible and inclusive by providing discounted student level memberships and membership scholarship options.
