The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts is owned and operated by its members, established local artists whose artwork includes oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, encaustic, sculpture, ceramics, photography, fiber art, jewelry, glass, metal, enamels, and wood. We strive to create an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual encouragement and to give the arts a more visible presence in the town of Hillsborough. Openings for new members arise when current members leave the gallery. Artists interested in being notified when an opening occurs should fill out a waiting list form, available on the HGA website.
