Annex membership is specifically geared to emerging and/or underrepresented artists seeking gallery experience and exposure in the Boston area. Annex members receive one 3-person show in our Annex gallery space once a year. Each exhibition is approximately one month and have a SoWa first Friday reception. This is a low residency membership, and members do not participate in daily operations and decision-making. Annex membership is capped at eighteen members, and is one year term. Annex members may reapply in subsequent years; preference will be given to artists who have not previously exhibited in the Annex. An additional benefit includes one discounted entry fee for main gallery juried shows.


Applications will be accepted in the fall of 2019. Fountain Street Core members will review the applications, and applicants will be notified of acceptance in early-December. Exhibitions will take place during the months of February, March, April, May, September and October. The month of November is reserved for our call-for-art award recipients.


There is no fee to apply; applications are accepted online ONLY. The application is competitive, and artists are not guaranteed acceptance.


This level of membership could be right for you if you are an emerging artist who is looking to increase your visibility and/or someone who would like guidance with curation and professional development. It also could be right if you have a busy schedule and are not in a position to do the staffing and/or administrative work that our other memberships require.


Annex membership may not be a good fit if you are an established artist with an extensive exhibition history.



Annex Membership is an application process juried by Core members.
