The Midwest Paint Group offers exhibition opportunities to
galleries as a part of a curated show or as a new/custom
exhibition for a specific venue.

We are open to discussion for those interested in sponsoring a
Midwest Paint Group exhibition. We have ongoing exhibitions in
development available for your consideration.

We provide Pprofessional proposals booklets along with a letter
outlining our exhibit concept, a CD with representative examples of
participant work, and a few sample catalogs to use as examples of
past shows. Exhibit installation photography is also available.
