Call for Art

The Show’s exhibition schedule is comprised of a combination of juried open calls, guest curated shows, independent exhibitions (rentals) from individual artists or arts organizations, special events (St. Paul Art Crawl), and our CoLab exhibition.


Annual CoLab Exhibition

Our mission manifests each year in the annual Co Lab exhibition, where self-taught and professional artists pair up to create collaborative artwork. Co Lab is a fundraiser for the gallery and artists vie for the Bill Murray’s Choice award.



“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” -Helen Keller


From greeting visitors and assisting with events, to selling art and sprucing up the gift shop, volunteers make The Show Gallery Lowertown happen. Volunteer rewards include, parking reimbursement, participation in the volunteer exhibition; space rental discounts; networking with a variety of artists, and opportunities to show during the Saint Paul Art Crawl.
