 * CALL FOR ARTISTS* 

Are You Ready To Join A Gallery?

We’re always looking to up our membership and add new members so we’re on the prowl for exciting and emerging artists!
The process is easy and we’re here to hold your hand and encourage you through it. We’ll partner you with a mentor for the first month. We will help you to display and market your work.
Here’s how it works:
Contact our Membership Chair Sherri by email  firstartgalleryolathe@gmail.com .  She will respond and ask you to submit 5 pieces of your artwork for our jury process.
Once you’re approved, we’ll schedule a time to set up your display!
Since we’re a member owned and operated business you’ll need to be involved in working a few shifts at the gallery every month (don’t worry, we’ll train you).  We’ll also ask you to roll up your sleeves and get involved in helping to do a few other things around the gallery.  Maybe marketing, merchandising, social media or perhaps working on our special events or art display committees.

The cost to join is a very affordable $60/month and you get 85% of everything you sell!  We’ll help you market yourself, and we have a website and Facebook to help you get up and running.
*REMEMBER TO SAVE THESE DATES   

GALLERY HOURS: Monday Open Painting 6-9 pm, Closed Tuesday, Wednesday 3-9 pm, Thursday 12-9 pm, Friday 3-9 pm, Saturday 11am-9pm, Sunday 1-6 pm
