Second Story Gallery in Camas is seeking artists interested in displaying their work during monthly shows being scheduled for 2013. The deadline for applications is Friday, Sept. 7 at 6 p.m.

The gallery’s board of governors will review artists this fall with the goal of filling openings from March of 2013 through January of 2014.  The selection process should be completed and applicants notified by the end of this year.

The non-profit gallery, upstairs in the Camas Public Library, is known for introducing local, often undiscovered artists.  The high-traffic space boasts a professional hanging system and directional track lighting also found in some of the world’s most famous art museums.

Second Story Gallery participates in the First Friday Art Walks held in downtown Camas.  Gallery volunteers work with the featured artist to unveil each monthly show with a reception on that night that is free and open to the public.  The exhibit then remains on display through the last week of the month.  The gallery is open to the public during regular library hours, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

To review the gallery’s guidelines and obtain an application form, an artist should visit the Service Desk at the library at 625 NE 4th Ave. or download the documents from the gallery’s web site,
