Submitting work to the Artists Market Sales Gallery
Become A Copper Country Artist
The Artist Market Sales Gallery ehibits local and regional, original artwork for sale. New artwork that is to be sold in the Sales Gallery must first go through a jury process. A panel of judges will review new work after the submission deadline and the artist will be called within two weeks of the review. The Community Arts Center takes a 40% commission from each piece sold to cover overhead and marketing.
* Submit 3-12 pieces of your actual work. Each piece must be ready for sale. Two dimensional work must be framed or matted, those in frames must be wired for hanging. Frames and glass must be clean and free of scratches. Matted pieces must be enclosed in shrinkwrap.
* Please clearly label each piece. Include your name, title, and retail price (include commission). To determine your selling price, multiply what you would like us to give you for the sale by 1.67 (example: If you want $20 from a sale, 20 X 1.67 = 33.40, mark piece $33 to $40).
* Include an artist biography. Tell us about yourself and your work. Include photos of you and/or your art.
* Deadlines: Deliver work on or before January 15, April 15, June 15, August 15, or October 15.
Note: If your artwork is accepted by the gallery and you wish to bring in new work at a later date, keep in mind that this work must also meet jury standards.
Due to limited space we can only display three framed pieces from each artist.
Apply for Solo or Group Shows in Kerredge Gallery
Are you an accomplished artist looking to do a solo show? The Copper Country Community Arts Center has a gallery that has month long special exhibits. We review proposals for shows on an ongoing basis. Because our exhibitions are grant driven, we plan the schedule 1 1/2 years in advance. A show in the Kerredge should be: art that is new, out of the ordinary, thought provoking, imaginative, stimulating, and awe inspiring. We also look for a well presented idea and professionally presented work. Timely delivery of supporting materials such as slides, resumes, and artists statements is essential. Also we encourage accompanying programs such as gallery talks, slide presentations, workshops, and demonstrations that are well thought out in advance. If you are ready, we should talk. Please schedule an appointment with Cynthia Coté via phone or e-mail.
