Art Gala


The North Ridge Country Club Art Society wishes to promote art and area artists, while also developing increased art appreciation within its membership. The NRCC Art Society continues to expand the permanent art collection in the clubhouse for members to enjoy. To achieve these goals, the North Ridge Country Club Art Society sponsors a juried art competition each year, culminating in a special event to showcase the work of the selected artists.

Gordon Peterson, Executive Director of The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, will serve as juror and select 25 pieces for the show from submitted artwork. Those selected artists will have 10 X 10 booths to offer additional work for sale at the North Ridge Country Club Art Gala on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 6 p.m. Club members and their guests will attend the party to view the work and possibly add pieces to their personal collections. The juror will choose Best in Show, Second and Third Place award winners, who will receive recognition at the Gala and the opportunity to display their work in Gallery Hall for a designated number of weeks at North Ridge Country Club. The North Ridge Country Club Art Society will purchase the Best in Show piece to hang in the permanent collection.

North Ridge Country Club established the Annual Art Gala Juried Competition and Sale in 2009. A small group of members put ideas into action and created the North Ridge Country Club Art Society. The group went to work putting together a juried event to showcase outstanding regional artists, provide an enjoyable social event for members, and ultimately collect fine artwork for the North Ridge clubhouse. Their mission was to keep the event affordable for artists to enter and for members to attend, and to support the arts community by providing exposure and potential sales for the artists juried into the show.

A Call for Entries is emailed to artists and art associations each October with a mid-January entry deadline. A juror from the area arts community selects the best 25 pieces from the digital submissions. Those 25 artists are invited to display their work in booths throughout the North Ridge Country Club ballroom at the Art Gala, which is the last Saturday in February each year. At the Art Gala, members and guests enjoy an evening social of art appreciation and also have the opportunity to purchase or commission fine art directly from the juried artists. The juror selects placements and a Best in Show winner, which NRCC purchases for the clubhouse. Guests also vote on a People’s Choice Award.
