A word from ShoreLake Arts

The aim of 6X6NW is to be an open and all-inclusive, community art exhibit.  We will strive to show as many submitted works as possible in the exhibition.  However, there may be works which we will reserve the right to not exhibit.


 As we plan for 6X6NW we are continually thinking of all those we serve: our members; event sponsors; guests to the event; and the artists. It is our goal to be fair and respectful to all in considering what is displayed.  


In the event that a submitted work is declined for exhibition by ShoreLake Arts staff, someone from the office will contact the artist personally to explain.
