Gallery Floor Plan

Entry walls:

On the large wall to the right of the gallery entrance, we either post simply the title of your show and the artist name, or we add a piece of art too. Often we place a flower arrangement on a pedestal in this space.

On the left side of the entry we have a wall pocket holding the informational flier for the show. Sometimes we set a pedestal under the wall pocket for additional items. That can hold items such as business cards, a guest book, a personal artist's book or binder with information the artist wants available for the public.

We have 15 pedestals for use in the gallery and/or at the entrance (as pictured), 5 each in 3 sizes.

Time Line

6 weeks before your show, please return these items to us:

  1. An image for use in marketing

  2. Any marketing materials you have created you want us to use

3 weeks before your show please inform us of these: (to order printed sign for the entrance wall):

At least one week before your show:

Do you want us to post anything on the gallery wall? If so, we need one page of any one, or several:

  1. Bio

  2. Resume

  3. Artist statement

  4. CVC


On the day you bring your work in for installation, typically the weekend before the opening reception, we need information on each piece. 


  • Labels

The system we use most often is an information flier in a wall pocket at the entrance to the gallery. The flier contains all of the information on each piece. Sometimes artists want labels posted on the wall. We're flexible. But either way, we need the following information in an organized list (1) brought with you and also (2) emailed to us to facilitate creating the informational flier:

  1. Name and/or identifying factor for each piece

  2. Name of the artist if this is not a solo show

  3. Price or NFS

  4. Optional additional information for any one piece or pieces:

    1. Medium

    2. Date

    3. Any additional information you want to express

On the evening of your opening reception 

If you decide you would like another reception during the month we need to put that reception date on the calendar before you leave the opening reception.

Before payment is issued we need a W9 for tax records. 


Times given above are to allow us to successfully prepare for your show by:

  • marketing, as delineated in the contract

  • getting our sign order in with enough time for the printer

  • having our own printing completed.

The success of the show depends, to an extent, on the artist participating in marketing efforts.

We are willing to market to your email list, if the list is provided.

Print Rack


We have a print rack available for you to use for additional art you would like to place in the gift shop for sale.
