   A BRIEF HISTORY OF GCAC

     The Galloway Cultural Arts Center is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to enriching our community through arts education,
cultural events and providing area artists with exhibit and
networking opportunities.

    The Galloway Cultural Arts Center was founded in 1996, through a
cooperative effort involving township council members, area artists and residents. 
We have become the community cultural arts center in Galloway Township.

    We strive to provide quality, affordable and accessible adult and children's arts
education for the residents of Galloway and surrounding areas.

    Membership is open to all! 

We are supported by modest membership dues, entry fees and
private and local business donations.
    
    Our exhibits take place at the Atlantic County Library, Galloway Branch, Jimmie Leeds Road, Galloway.  The exhibit is open during normal library hours.

    We invite you to exhibit, drop off and register your work on
the first day of the show between 10-12pm.
 
Cost for members is $5.00 per piece and $10.00 per piece for non-members. 

    Awards are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons and are awarded in each category.

  There is also a $50 monetary prize which goes to all First Place winners.
