Every year dues-paying NCC members showcase what they feel is their best work in this month-long show. This is not a curated show.  We hope there is room for 1 print per person. If there is not enough exhibit space for every member who signs-up, then we will have a lottery. 

All members who signed up to participate in the show (whether or not you were selected in the lottery to show a print) are welcome to also submit an image to the online gallery for everyone to enjoy. Participation in the online gallery is optional. To participate, please upload your image(s) to DropBox using the link below. Images should be sized 1920 pixels on the long side (same as they are for competitions). 



Newton Free Library

330 Homer St

Newton, MA


Your family-friendly framed image should be brought to the Newton Free Library on March 1st between 9 and 10am.

Online Participation

Once you have been notified, optionally upload your image(s) for the online gallery by February 18th using the DropBox link on the right. 


  • Label your framed images!
    Put your name, title and the price (or NFS..not for sale) on a label on the back of each framed work. If plexiglass is used, please also add a P to the label so we don’t try and clean them with Windex.

  • Frames must be sturdy and wired
    All frames are required to be sturdy and have a wire across the back. If the frame is not sturdy, your image will not be hung.

  • Framed size should be 16" x 20"
    Frames should be 16" x 20 " or visual equivalent for other aspect ratios. No larger images will be accepted. Prints should be around 10"x15". Significantly smaller images in appropriately smaller frames are discouraged as they will be “lost” visually. Please let us know if you would like to show a small print.

  • Use black frames with white mats.
    We strongly suggest black frames with white / off white mats to provide a degree of uniformity for the exhibit.

  • Protect your images.
    Glass or Plexiglas to protect your print is highly recommended but not mandatory. As above, if plexiglass is used, please add a P to the label. No plastic sheeting please.
