Dear Huntington Arts Council Members and Friends:
Your Main Street Gallery has embarked on a schedule of exciting events that promises to include more artists by instituting Invitational Gallery Shows offering small groups of artists* the entire Main Street Gallery in which to show their work. Since the gallery accommodates approximately 40 works, depending upon size, a considerable amount of wall space can be devoted to each artist with additional space for sculpture on pedestals. If, for instance, four artists are sharing the space, each one will be able to display approximately 10 works. Invitational Gallery Shows will have plenty of cache’ with a Friday evening show‐opening reception** and will run for a period of two and a half weeks. You will also have the option of sitting with your show and inviting friends to view it from 12 to 4 pm on two Saturdays. HAC will publicize it through social media and on our website. Specs are as follows: 2 artists ‐ approx. 20 works per artist ‐ $600 total @ $300 per artist 3 artists ‐ approx. 13 works per artist ‐ $600 total @ $200 per artist 4 artists ‐ approx. 10 works per artist ‐ $600 total @ $150 per artist Larger established groups will be considered, upon request, on an individual basis based on scheduling availability. The Exhibition Committee will curate all Invitational Gallery Shows in an effort to present optimum artistic balance. If you would like this opportunity to show your work in an Invitational Gallery Show, just just click here to download the form, fill it out, mail it or drop it off with 10 to 15 images of your work on a CD, flash drive or photographs. Do not include any checks at this time. All requests for shows will be reviewed by the Exhibition Committee. We know that you will be pleased with our new approach. Please help us make this work for you by submitting, free of charge, some images you wish to be considered for an Invitational Gallery Show. We look forward to seeing you at your Main Street Gallery!
My very best wishes, Linda Louis Board Member & Exhibition Chair Huntington Arts Council
