We have seen a dramatic growth in the number of outlets stocking our annual and the sales to art directors.

Small Works Show


Hi Everyone,

I wanted to pass this along to you from Chris Noel.
Please let others know as well.

Small Works + Big Hearts

The Artists’ Gallery of Frederick will be filled with over 100 small works created by gallery members in all media including painting, photography, ceramics, printmaking and sculpture. In the spirit of the season, 10% of all sales will be donated to the Frederick Community Action Agency which provides a broad array of programs and services including the food bank and the Frederick Soup Kitchen.

This is a great opportunity for both new and seasoned collectors to acquire original art at affordable prices. Our members are grateful for the opportunity to create small works that can make a big difference this holiday season. Shoppers can help make a difference too as they invest in one-of-a-kind gifts by local artists.
