We're looking forward to having your work exhibited at the gallery. There are roughly three stages to the process. The1st is the preparation for the show- we’ll need some information about yourself and about 3 pieces that you expect to beshowing. The 2nd stage involves setting up the show and providing the gallery with both an inventory list of the itemson display and digital images of these same works. The 3rd pertains simply to updating the inventory list should anypieces be sold during the exhibition and not remain on display until the end of the show.
Prior to the show, we’ll be in communication with you and working to prepare promotional materials to get word outabout the upcoming exhibit. Please provide the following for us by email, phone, fax, or in-person visit to the gallery:
1 - Artist(s) Name(s):2- Address:
3- Email Address:4- Phone:5- Website URL:6- A brief
one paragraph or so- about yourself and your art process relevant to the pieces you expect to beshowing:(ex Jane Doe: As an artist, I am always setting mundane objects next to each other, whether in my mind or physically,and seeing what sort of moments can happen. This has led to the pursuit of a continuing exploration of found-objectsculptures of materials from curbside junk to store-bought valuables. As a native Portlander, I value the ability to useand re-use the artifacts of our capitalist-industrial society in ways that expand their possibilities and utility.)7- A pared-down one-sentence 'blurb' that captures the core of your work for the show: (ex: Portland sculptress JaneDoe's found-object sculptural juxtapositions)8- And if possible, please provide the gallery with digital images of each piece (larger images are generally preferable)each with
Size (Width x height in inches, plus depth if relevant. If framed, please use the frame’s dimensions.)
Any special information we may need in handling the pieceTypically, the sooner we have these things, the sooner the gallery can begin promoting your part in the show. Eachexhibition’s postcard is designed and printed several weeks ahead of the show’s opening, so it’s important to providethese materials as early as possible.
The hanging and installation of your work into the gallery is the main focus of Stage 2. This typically happens onTuesday morning before the month’s First Friday. You may find the attached floor and wall plans useful in choosingwhich pieces you will be showing. Installation of artwork is usually the responsibility of the artist(s), so do bring anytools and hardware that may be needed. The gallery has a small selection of these and may be able to provide someassistance with installation.You will need to bring (or email us) a completed Inventory List listing all the pieces that will be exhibited- the artist andthe gallery can then sign off on the Gallery-Artist Agreement form and attach the Inventory List.
