SHOWING OPPORTUNITY FOR ARTISTS
Van Der Plas Gallery is offering a showing opportunity for all artists who are looking to gain gallery exposure and a chance to establish an ongoing relationship with the gallery.
An open call is being issued to artists, to exhibit their art from Monday, March 5th through Sunday, March 11th, 2018. An opening reception is scheduled for Wednesday, March 7th, from 6-8 p.m.
Submission procedure: Artists who would like to take part in the exhibition should contact the gallery directly by email with a submission including:
- High quality electronic images of proposed work
- Dimensions of the artwork
- Artist Statement
- All art must be priced for retail (with no exceptions)
No submission fee: There will be no fee for submission of work, but in order to cover a portion of expenses, artists who are selected for the exhibition will be asked to contribute an administration fee determined by the number and size of works shown.
The administration fees are as follows:
- 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 14” x 11” $150
- 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 24” x 18” $200
- 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 40” x 30” $250
- 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 60” x 48” $350
Larger works will be considered and will necessitate a higher fee. Please ask for pricing for exhibiting more than one work of art.
Sales of work will be a standard split of half to the artist, half to the gallery. The administration fee will serve as a credit in the event of a sale. For example, with an administration fee of $150 the artist would receive all proceeds from the first $300 of works sold.
-All art that is accepted for the exhibit must be delivered to the gallery ready to be hung, by 12 p.m. Friday, March 2nd, 2018.
-All shipments must be delivered to Van Der Plas Gallery, 156 Orchard Street, NY, NY 10002. The gallery hours are 12-6 p.m. Please make all shipping arrangements accordingly.
-All art must be picked up on Monday, March 12th, by 4pm. The gallery does not have sufficient storage space to hold art beyond this deadline. Wrapping and shipping are the responsibility of the artist or artist’s agent. Art not picked up by this deadline will either be stored by the gallery with charges of not less than $25 per day, or be disposed of, at the discretion of the gallery.
