IM SO EXCITED about ! I stopped by the Auxillary Dog Theater today and the space they have offered us is GREAT! Aprox 75 to 90 linear feet of wall space, plus a stage/platform area about 20 SF for sculpture or 3d art works.
We are looking at a show in February, opening the first Thursday and running for 3 to 4 weeks. The play in February is "The Price" by Arthur Miller and we are considering making it a themed show to match the play. Karen Pittman has agreed to look into how much it would cost to purchase picture rail and I will be looking for one or more volunteers with carpentry skills and a free evening to mount it - in preparation for hanging artwork.
The Theater would be offering the space free of charge - in exchange for mounting the picture rail and also placing an ad in their program guide which could run $100 to $200. If we have 20 artists participating, that would be less than $10 each - perhaps $15 each with materials and incidentals costs. Then, we could figure out some way to take a percentage of sales to reimburse expenses.
Anyway, these are just a few early ideas on how to make this group art show work at this location. If your interested in helping organize, or showing your work, please try to drop by the lobby Auxillery Dog Theater on Monte Vista, just a 1/2 block north of Central and check out the space. Be prepared to be inspired!
Then, go to the Discussion page of this Meetup Group under "group Art Show growing legs" and put in your 20 cents worth ;-) Let us know if you would like to submit your work - and how you feel about a themed show. And whatever else ;-}
