The gallery is temporarily closing August 18th and will reopen in January, 2019. All other business operations will continue including workshops, artist studios, event rentals, long term rentals, building tenants, and annual fundraising. Youth Summer Art Workshops for 2019 are already in planning stages. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to showcasing our community artist in January, 2019.
Visual Artist Partnership
The Art Garage invites you to join with us as we expand our gallery and create an artist community that creates, teaches and thrives! We provide the atmosphere for you to earn an income, build friendships, collaborate, grow and give back to the community. Our mission at the Art Garage is to encourage an appreciation for and participation in the visual, performing, and literary arts. When we partner together, we can become a place for established artists to thrive, emerging artists to grow and a place where our community can appreciate our local artists.
How It Works
Each artist must submit a portfolio that will be juried by their peers to determine acceptance into the program. The fee for the program is $350 per year, per artist or $200 per year, per student artist. (Quarterly payments can be made through automatic deduction).
Artwork will be displayed in our gallery and event space, rotated each quarter with an artist reception and given online and social media exposure. No commission will be charged on any sales of the artwork.
What’s not included
Our front gallery which is a monthly exhibition space available for rent or sponsorship with 10% commission on sales.
Our gift shop for quality, artisan gifts with 40% commission on sales.
Offsite exhibitions at Artstreet, ArtiGras, Ignite, etc with a 25% commission on sales.
As a partner with the Art Garage, we ask that you invest your time back into the organization by volunteering once per quarter. Your strengths will be matched against a list of events and opportunities that you may pick from. We will then empower you in that area underneath the guidance of our staff and the mission of the Art Garage. We will also ask you to give a demo on your work or expertise, once per year.
When Will the Program Launch?
The program will launch in January of 2019, with an unveiling at our opening reception on January 11th at 7pm-10pm.
To be considered for the 2018 year, all portfolios must be submitted no later than December 17th, 2018, along with a $15 non-refundable processing fee. All portfolios will be reviewed and artists will be notified no later December 18th, 2018. Artwork will be dropped off between December 19th, 2018 and December 31st, 2018.
Come and be a part of something bigger than yourself and build a greater Green Bay community of artists!
