my direction, some accomplishments and how things are coming along.
Since being in the space at 703 2nd Ave. North the hot water heater has been replaced, the floor has been repaired in the front room on the right, it has now been made into a library, book shelves (donated by Nancy Bentley) have been installed and a new linoleum floor was installed in the large room on the left in the hall. The windows have been cleaned and the flooring in the window area has been replaced with linoleum. The walls in the front gallery room have been cleaned so well, it looks as if the room has been painted and may not need to be in order to use it for a gallery space. We have a mailbox, numbers for the building over the front door, our sign in the windows, and a doorbell at the front door along with the logo on the door. Shelving and storage, seating, lockers, and display cases, work tables and a library of books will soon all be in place in the building; and all this has been done while getting together the most successful vendor event we have had in three years. We have had to vacate the area to get these things done, but soon the space will be complete and ready for displays.
Are you ready to use the new gallery space to display your work for a
show and have your own reception? There will be a calendar to sign up for your time in the gallery; who will sign up for January? Decide whether you want to share the space with others, or reserve the entire space for your own work. A co-operative agreement for members using the gallery space will determine your own gallery hours. Can you or your representative be present in the building while your art is on display? This is what we must do until there is staff to occupy and open and close the building. We will do the best we can.
We will offer classes before the end of the year! The teaching contract will be ready at the end of next week. Email us at email@example.com if you want to offer a
class, giving the class details, time, name of the class, your contact
information; whatever needs to be made public. Your class can be
advertised in the front windows of the building to publicize you, your art, and your classes!
