FIRST FRIDAY INFORMATION
GALLERY COSTS AND COMMISSIONS
We take 35% of everything that is sold in our gallery.
We do not OFFICIALLY charge for wall space for our First Friday shows. We do however accept donations to the gallery for this service.
Past donations have ranged from $25.00 to a couple hundred dollars depending on experience, affordability and what sort of pricing you have on your work. We have even had donations into the hundreds of millions of dollars (this is patently untrue).
Schools, non-profits, organizations and some groups don't have to worry about this at all.
PLEASE PROVIDE US WITH A FULL AND ITEMIZED LIST OF ALL ARTWORK YOU BRING TO THE GALLERY. WE WILL CHECK IT TOGETHER, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A SIGNED COPY.
Please bring all wall art to the gallery framed (if applicable), and ready to hang. We generally hang with command strips, nails or screws, so there is no need to worry about putting holes in our walls. We're quite good at patching and touch-up painting.
We have the capacity to show sculptures, and other 3-D artwork.
If you are a video/light-work artist, we do have the capacity for almost all kinds of video and light-work.
We host musicians, poets, spoken word artists and other performance artists as often as we can.
If you are a muralist and would like to discuss painting one of our back walls, please let us know.
The MONDAY before First Friday is the optimal day to bring in your work. Please also bring in your artist statement, and a list of your works, the media you use, and prices.
The TUESDAY before First Friday is a perfectly good day to bring in your work. Of course also bring in your artist statement, and a list of your works, the media you use, and prices.
The WEDNESDAY before First Friday is the deadline for bringing in your work. Be sure to bring in your artist statement, and a list of your works, the media you use, and prices.
There is no Thursday before First Friday or Day-Of-First-Friday hanging. If the Wednesday deadline cannot be met, unfortunately you will not be able to show that month. There are no exceptions.
FOOD AND DRINK
We provide food and drink for our patrons on First Fridays. You are encouraged to bring food and drink to share:)
First Friday is a ONE-NIGHT SHOW, and officially a ONE-NIGHT SHOW ONLY. You may bring people by to view your work during regular gallery hours for up to two weeks after the show. Final takedown day is the third Friday of the month.
We pay on the second Friday of every month, by cash, check, Paypal, Square or Venmo. We provide an itemized receipt for all artwork sold. This will include a full breakout of commissions, fees, etc.
