Boulevard Days are here again! As we head into summer, Arts Off Main will once again be hosting Boulevard Days, an opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work on the boulevard in front of the gallery. This is a great opportunity to show your work to new audiences in the Main Street area and catch a few rays at the same time!
You may have up to 20 feet of wall space and an 8-foot table, chairs and a tent. If two people are exhibiting that day, you will need to share that same space and you can bring your own table, chairs and a tent, if you wish. Your only job is to keep an eye on all the work outside so that it doesn't "walk" away. We have more flexibility with what we show on the boulevard because we don't have the same space restrictions as in the shop, so we can try new possibilities. You never know what you will get on a weekend day, though Saturdays always seem busier. You are welcome to do demos, play guitar, paint at your easel, bring your dog -- just about anything goes that will draw the crowds and isn't scandalous!
All sales of artwork shown on the boulevard will be handled by the gallery inside. Arts Off Main will charge a 25% commission. We have Interact, VISA, MasterCard and a float to facilitate any sales. All contacts and future commissions you make remain your own unless you'd like us to process the sale. The bottom line is that it doesn't cost anything to try except time and prayers to the sun gods.
For further information or to book a time, please send a link to your website or JPGs of your work to:
