If possible, please bring some refreshments and/or appetizers to share with the public. Wine, beer, pop, or water in coolers is acceptable too. The gallery has tables set up along the west wall and provides plates, cups and napkins.

National Artists:

The Crossroads Arts District is packed with happening art galleries in restored warehouses. Hip coffee bars, brewpubs, BBQ joints and retro-styled bars dot the area, along with independent shops selling fashion, and handcrafted jewelry. At monthly First Friday events, art shows and food trucks draw big crowds. 

Sales Commission

75% of sales go to the artist


We require that you, the artist, attend the First Friday reception and participate for its entirety, or better part of it. We also require you stay on the floor of your art and that you engage with the public in trying to sell your art during the Show. We are a partnership, gallery and artist, and we need this to help each other make sales. If you are unable for this show to participate in this manner, we ask that you please refrain from signing up, and only do so for future shows when you are able to.

Art purchased through the gallery may be taken by the patron at the time of payment.

Artists are notified by email of the sale and should have art ready to replace the sold piece at their earliest convenience. Out of state artists are not required to replace any sold art.

Artists must make up two tags for each piece, one to put on the back of the artwork and one to put up on the wall. Both tags need to be labeled with artist's name, title, medium, and price. Both tags need to be no larger than 3.5" x 5".
