Bent Tree is a small gallery; we are often at capacity but always considering new artists for membership. We are a small team that reviews every submission. Also, if your first submission did not get a response, feel free to send another with new examples of your art.  It helps us to see a range of your work. Click on this link for specific information including rent and commission.



  1. Artists must live in Central Texas and be willing to work at the gallery two times per month.

  2. Do not send just a link to your website or social networking profile. We need photos attached to your email, please.

  3. Include titles, sizes, medium, and your contact information.

  4. Please keep in mind that all art that we display and sell is ready to hang. We do not accept art on loose paper, work must be quality framed or gallery-wrapped canvas. Wood panels should be 1" deep minimum. It doesn't hurt to include side shots of your art.

  5. Please do not submit your old paintings that you are having a hard time getting rid of. We like fresh, new, and exciting art.

  6. Photos must be LOW-RESOLUTION jpeg or gif file format no larger than 600x900 pixels or 200KB. Your submission will likely be overlooked if you send files that are larger than 200KB since they will take a significant amount of time to load.

  7. Once you have met the above requirements, email at least 5 photos of your art to with "ARTIST SUBMISSION" in the subject field.

  8. Your application will not be considered without photographs of your work.

  9. Attached is an APPLICATION FORM.
