July 2018

The Bramble Ramble! 

The Bramble Ramble! If you recognize that name, then you have been around the Randolph Arts Guild for quite some time! Anyone who has stepped foot in the gift shop or anywhere downstairs at the Guild knows our four footed associate Bramble! The little Westie was a close companion of the late Claudia Ainsworth, and is still a recognizable furry face at the Guild. The Bramble Ramble is an invitational art show to be held in the month of July. All artwork submitted has only two criteria: 1. The work must be inspired by Bramble. -OR- The work must be inspired by Claudia. That’s it! This show will be juried with the juror to be announced. Part of the sales from the Gallery commission will be donated to a memorial fund in Claudia’s name, so we ask that all work be for sale. The show will run July 10th through the 31st, with the opening reception on July 10th at 5:30 pm. Artists with questions about submission, please contact the Executive Director at 336-629-0399, ext 23.
Cost: No application fee, but part of proceeds from the Gallery Commission of sales go towards Claudia’s memorial fund
Drop off time:

Gallery Guidelines

The Randolph Arts Guild is seeking Gallery Submissions for the 2019 Calendar year!  Please see the application form available using the button!

The Randolph Arts Guild’s Gallery Committee is always excited to review the work of artists from within and around our community. To submit your work for consideration please email with Gallery Submission in the subject line.

Please include the following:

  • 3-5 images of your art
  • A short paragraph about what you would like to exhibit.
  • A brief artist statement / bio (Tell us who you are, what you do, and why you do it).

You may also include a current artistic resume and link to your website. It is not uncommon for the Gallery Committee to review an artist’s work multiple times in consideration for exhibition. They will make every effort to give artist feedback regarding their submission. The Sara Smith Self Gallery exhibitions are typically booked two years in advance. Questions – call 336-629—0399 x 23.
