She received her MFA from the University of Oregon in 2010. McGee has exhibited across the US, including shows at In Sight Gallery in Vermont, Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, 1650 Gallery, and The California Center for the Arts. Her work has been published in an exhibition catalog, which has been collected by the Brooklyn Museum Library and the Auckland Museum Library in New Zealand.

- The exhibit is open to all artists living or working in Oregon; the work does not need to have “Oregon” as its subject matter.
- All work must have been completed in the last two years.
- All media, except music and performance, will be considered.
- Work previously exhibited at The Arts Center will not be accepted or presented to the juror.
Terms and Parameters:
- Non-juried work cannot be substituted for accepted work. Artwork must be available for the duration of the exhibit.
- Artists are responsible for delivery/transportation to and from The Arts Center.
- Pieces must be ready to hang or install (we do not accept saw tooth hangers). If not, staff can choose not to include the piece. Pieces must be identified with a label on the back or bottom, either your own label or TAC label provided with notification. The label must have the artist’s name, the title of the work and email address or phone number.
- Fragile surfaces must be protected by glass or Plexiglas; for special display methods, the artist needs to supply materials and clear instructions.
- No size restrictions, but note that very large pieces are harder to place in a group exhibit.
- Artwork must be for sale; The Arts Center will receive a 50% commission on all sales. The Arts Center will not be responsible for loss or damage to artworks left at TAC after Aug 10, 2019.
- Insurance will be provided during the exhibition. All work will be reimbursed for the full commission of the sales price declared on the provided consignment form. The consignment form must be completed for insurance value to be effective.
