Venues opportunities

VENUES - MEMBERS ONLY

Show & Sell Your Artwork

Looking for a place to show and sell your artwork?  We have several Community Art Venues where Arlington Artists Alliance members can display their work for sale.  It’s a win/win for our Arlington community and our artists.

We have several venues throughout Arlington for our members to show and sell their work; each venue has different audiences and requirements.  We encourage you to review the list below and the requirements to see where you would like to show and sell your work.

 

We currently have two processes to sign up to display your artwork. 

Venues and curators that use sign up app (electronically)

Venues and curators that require you to contact them directly

To get a better idea of our Venue logistics, please review the Venue Contacts sheet, which includes three sections: Venues that require sign up electronically, venues that require direct contact with the curator, and venues that are temporarily closed due to COVID-19. 

 

For all Community Art Venues we ask:

  1. In order to hang at one of the Arlington Artists Alliance Venues, the artist must be a current member of the Alliance.

  2. Artists create and attach to the bottom right corner of their work the Venues Labels Template.

  3. The Artist creates a Venues Inventory Template of the artwork that is being displayed and takes a picture of the walls with the artwork. Artist emails the inventory and photos to the curator for the Venue.

  4. Curator compiles all inventories and photos for that changeover and sends them to the Gallery Underground email. 

  5. Curator displays the Arlington Artists Sign at the Community Venue.

  6. All paintings should follow the Alliance Framing Standards.

  7. To allow all of our members an opportunity to show and sell their work we ask that you sign up for only one slot per year per venue.    Once you sign up on Signup.com,  the curators should send an email to exhibiting members approximately two weeks prior to the changeover date.  If the member does not receive an email please reach out to the curator, their contact information is in the Signup.com information and the venue contact list.  Please respond as soon as possible to the curator to avoid a last minute scramble to fill the venue.   If a member artist is non responsive to attempts from the curator to coordinate the change over or does not show up to the changeover on time the artist will be replaced for that slot and can be excluded from that venue for up to a year.

 

As a guide when reading the requirements please use the following chart for 2D works of art:

 

Size of Painting

Small             9" x 12" or smaller

Medium       9" x 12" - 20" x24"

Large            20"x24" +

 

3D is very dependent on the venue - Examples: pieces of jewelry,  pieces of pottery, woodwork or small tabletop artwork.

When in doubt please contact the curator.

Due to the pandemic, several Venues are closed but we hope they will reopen in the near future.  We thank the Alliance members who volunteer to curate these venues.  If you are interested in becoming a curator; please contact Cindy Donohoe our Venue Coordinator at Cynthia.c.donohoe@gmail.com.
