Heritage Home for the Arts Gallery Gift Shop

Calling all artists!

The Heritage Home for the Arts is inviting interested artists to make an application to sell their work at our gallery gift shop.

The Arts Council's Program Committee meets four times a year to review and make decisions on gift shop applications. Applicants are contacted once a decision has been made. Please note that if we are not able to display your work at this time, you are able to apply again for the next period.

If you have not yet had a chance to visit the Heritage Home for the Arts, we invite you to do so to familiarize yourself with the gift shop and the gallery.

Applications are available by contacting us at ktmartscouncil@gmail.com.


Before making an application, please note the following policies and guidelines:
