Please note that the UU church that houses Gallery 333 is closed at this time.  The UUCA staff  has set up a virtual exhibit of some of the artwork.  Since this was an unplanned event, not all of the artists are represented and some of the artwork is missing, but with apologies to those artists,  we are presenting whatever artwork was available.  Click here to enjoy the virtual gallery!

Our annual “Outside the Paintbox” exhibit will be in Gallery 333 in the Annapolis Unitarian Church at 333 Dubois Road, off Bestgate Road in Annapolis during the months of March and April.            

This is an opportunity, though completely optional, to challenge yourself to think somewhat more creatively, perhaps abstractly, perhaps by experimenting with some collage, ink, pencil, pastel, or bits of other media, perhaps working on Yupo or some other substrate you’ve always wanted to try. Do keep in mind that the painting still needs to be created primarily using a transparent medium.

Framed art to be hung on the walls should be original work only. Matted work in the bin can be a giclée reproduction.  Please remember that framed work should have wire for hanging and matted paintings should have a backing and a clear plastic wrap or sleeve for protection. Please include a label on the back of each piece with all the information that a gallery or purchaser will want to know: Title of the painting; Price; Media (including any additional materials used) and Substrate; Your name; and Your contact information (address, phone, email, website). 


1. Eligibility
