Members Small Works Exhibit

Cost:  It is FREE for us to show in this gallery. However, keep in mind that the gallery takes 15% of the sales.

Artwork Size: The gallery size can only handle so many artists so we will be exhibiting smaller pieces. We will do a small version of salon style (stacked) this will allow more pieces per artist.

Each member will get a 20” Wide x 36” High    Several suggested options:

  • Fill your 20Wx36H space with six 8x8’s.

  • Fill your 20Wx36H space with one or two large pieces that are stacked one above the other.

  • Fill your 20Wx36H with one big piece. This one piece could be long and skinny even go to 6FT or 8FT High.  BUT the 20 wide is a must.

This will be monitored when you drop off your work. We will turn down your work if you show up with anything larger then what we stated. It is only fair to everyone else and in the past, we made exceptions at hanging time with larger pieces and other members have been upset. So please be very aware of this.  Again, the size you get is 20Wx36H.

 

The gallery only has 6 podiums, so we are limited in this aspect.

 

Drop off and Intake:   Date is still TBD:    Wednesday, September 2, 2020 OR Tuesday, September 1, 2020 OR Sunday, August 30, 2020.

We ask that everyone wear a mask and practice the 6 feet distance while socializing.

We will have two tables and two tents outside the gallery set up for taking in work.  

  • 10:00 am to 1:00 pm DROP OFF YOUR WORK.   |   Barb and Carrie will check you in and make sure you have your pieces labeled with your name, the title, medium, and price; have framed work clean and neat with wire behind or secure installation mechanism and directions/diagram.    Carrie will fill out a WCA-CO tag that we are making to go next to your artwork. 

  • Once checked in:  Our volunteers, Leslie Gardener and Kathee Kiehn will take the work and disturb it around the rooms. 

  •  We are NOT asking the members to hang.

  • 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm  |    Barb and Carrie will curate the show.

  • 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm   |   Barb, Carrie, Sue Crosby Doyle and Melody Epperson will hang the show. Sue and Melody can bring their work at this time.

  • If you need to make arrangements to ship it or get it to Barb early, I work 6 blocks from the gallery so contact me

 

DeInstall:  Date is still TBD:  Saturday, Sept 26th,  4 to 6 OR Sunday, September 27th,  1 to 3

We ask that everyone wear a mask and practice the 6 feet distance while socializing.

Each artist takes their own work down.

We do NOT patch the walls – 40W does that.

We might set up times by last name to come in so we cannot have everyone there at the same time.

 

Other:

We decided not to do a postcard. Instead we will be creating a Video AND a Virtual Tour with voice over. 

All these will be given out to the participates to use in emails and your social media groups. 

We also will be promoting these to WCA-CO Instagram and Facebook so you can always share from there. 

It will also be given to 40 West to share on their page(s).
