During sunny summer weekends between June and September, Arts Off Main will once again be hosting "Boulevard Days". Artists from all mediums are invited to participate in one day event by showcasing their work outside the gallery. Each Boulevard day may feature one or more artists and some of the artists will be giving live demonstrations of their creative process. Be sure to check the website for dates and featured artists. Then stop by and join the fun.
Would you like a venue to show and sell your work in the Main Street
neighbourhood? Are you interested in joining a friendly group of artists? Do you
work in a 3-D media? Is your work highly marketable and interesting? Then
we want you!
Arts Off Main gallery is currently seeking submissions for a new artist/partner. We are a group of nine partner artists responsible for the running of the gallery. Each partner has a designated area in the gallery for showing their work and is free to select and display whatever they choose.
We take turns staffing the gallery, about 2-3 full days per month each. There is a minimal monthly rent to pay for a convenient Main Street location and a buy-in cost in exchange for 100% of the sale of your work.
We are looking for someone who works well with others and has a collaborative
approach. Monthly meetings at the gallery allow us to catch up with each other
and make collective decisions on the gallery's operations. We also use email to
discuss a lot of topics.
Our aims are to offer reasonably priced, good quality artwork and gifts as well as to participate in the community. We held a group show last year at the Seymour Art Gallery, exhibited at several other local events, raised donations for the Vancouver Food Bank and joined in Main Street merchants association activities.
Artists whose work is approved by the partnership will be invited to bring in some of
their work and meet with the Partnership Committee. This will give the
gallery a chance to see the actual work and for the artist to meet some of the
members and ask any questions they may have.
