Asher Gallery, within Houston Center For Contemporary Craft, is a retail showcase for acclaimed local, emerging, and national artists in all craft media. Asher Gallery accepts work based on a number of criteria. Please send submissions to Asher Gallery Manager, Suzanne Sippel, via USPS or electronically to ssippel@crafthouston.org.

Appointments may be scheduled by the Asher Gallery Manager after submissions are reviewed; however, not all submissions will receive a reply. No walk-ins will be considered.

The Asher Gallery works on a 50/50 split consignment basis. Accepted artists are responsible for shipping and insuring any work to HCCC. HCCC assumes responsibility for shipping and insuring work returned to artist.

Please note that, although work might meet all of the criteria at an acceptable level, the Asher Gallery Manager reserves the right to refuse work based upon suitability to the atmosphere of Asher Gallery, the number of artists carried and available space. Artists may continue to submit presentations to the Asher Gallery Manager as new bodies of work are created; these will be considered separately from original submissions.
