If you are an artist or photographer who would like to showcase your work, keep reading! If you know an artist or photographer, please pass this information on to them. We are currently building our art display calendar for the end of this year, and through 2019. Local artists can get some great exposure by displaying their work on our taproom wall.
We can exhibit all sorts of 2-dimensional work, including photography, paintings, drawings, digital, mixed media, fabric art, chalk, ink, pastels, etc, as long as it is not extremely heavy. We have three (42” x 60”) boards to hang artwork on, which are covered in fabric carpet and we use curtain hooks behind each piece to hang the artwork.
Usually you can expect that we will display your artwork for 1 month, but possibly up to 2 months.
We charge a 10% fee to process payments for artwork through our register. (This is to cover sales tax and credit card processing fees on our end.) So please remember to build 10% fees into your prices for the artwork.
When a piece of artwork sells, we will ask the buyer if they are willing to pick it up at the end of the month, and we will mark it sold. If they want to take it with them immediately we will let them take it with them. At the end of the month when you take down your artwork, we will write you a check for any pieces that sold.
During the month that your artwork is displayed, we would like to have a Meet and Greet event – a chance for customers to come in and meet you! We have hosted these in the past on a Sunday from 3-5 pm. Once we settle on a date, we will create an event on Facebook that you can share far and wide. This is a great chance to market yourself, so invite as many people as you want to come see your work displayed!
To be considered, please send us:
Your contact information (phone number and email address).
Photos of your art or a link to an online gallery if you have one, so we can get a good idea of your style and decide whether it fits for our taproom.
