For those who missed the meeting last night I wanted to update you what we are doing for art venues.
If you want to exhibit we’ve changed the rules. There will be no hanging fee to exhibit in the venues, however there will be a 20% commission collected on any sales in the venues. That money will go back to GVAL to help keep us alive.
As a result of this change we’ve had an overwhelming response from members at the meeting who signed up to participate, so space is limited, until we have more venues. Right now there are 3 venues, Bergies, Cholewka Law Offices and GSBA. Let me know right away that you want to participate and I’ll include you in the list.
Basically I’m going to break us up into three teams, one for each venue. You will be notified when your team is to show up at a particular venue. You will know who is on your team and you can ask them for help if you can’t make the scheduled time.
If you have any ideas for other venues let me know so we can work with the owners.
I’ll be sending out a schedule next week. So plan to get your work prepared for hanging by making sure the art is wired and has tags for pricing. With limited space let’s keep the pieces around the 16×20 size maximum and plan on 2-3 pieces.
If you have any questions let me know.
