The City of Bowie Arts Committee maintains art galleries on the first and second floors of Bowie City Hall. The galleries, named East Gallery and West Gallery, include hanging space for photography and paintings, and two display cases for three-dimensional artwork.
The Arts Committee changes the gallery, usually on a quarterly basis. The majority of the gallery exhibits are juried shows. Artists all over the metro DC-Baltimore area are eligible to participate in the juried shows. Typically the committee sends emails to artists in its database telling them of upcoming shows and including a flyer/entry form. Artists are then invited to submit digital images (jpegs) of their artwork, photography and/or paintings/sculpture, along with the entry form.
The Arts Committee juries the work and lets artists know which pieces are selected for the upcoming show. Artists interested in receiving information about upcoming shows should contact Lori Cunningham, staff liaison to the Arts Committee, at 240-544-5601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The galleries are open during regular business hours of City Hall at 15901 Excalibur Rd. Our virtual galleries are available online.

The theme for The Great Outdoors virtual gallery is landscapes and outside scenes of nature, such as mountains, rivers, and wide-open spaces. The artwork is from local artists and most of the art is available for sale. If you have an inquiry about the price, please call or email Lori Cunningham.
