Twitter Art Show: Grandon Art Gallery
We have a show! In September, Grandon Art Gallery in Flagstaff, AZ will be showing Twitter 140! I spoke with David Grandon the gallery owner yesterday via telephone. He just wrote me an email to confirm the dates and supply additional information:
“The opening of the show will be the September 4th, the First Friday of the Month (coinciding with our artwalk. The music will be a small percussion section of our Symphony featuring a couple of steel drums!
I would love to have the work as early as possible (I can store it in the gallery no problemo) but would like the work here by the last week of August. I am used to hanging work the day of the show but like to avoid it if possible!). My address gallery is:
The Grandon Art Gallery
20 N. Leroux
Flagstaff, AZ 86001
I am not particularly worried about agreement forms or contracts for a one month show. Besides your letter required the artist to provide their own insurance.
Here are things to remember:
1. All work should be professionally presented and exhibition ready (wired, framed if necessary, no glass).
2. U.S. artists send work to Grandon Gallery to address stated above so it arrives no later than the last week of August. BE SURE to include a prepaid waybill (FedEx, UPS, etc.) for the return of unsold work. International artists can send the work to my studio (as discussed in my email sent to you earlier today.) You do NOT have to provide return shipping payment at this time. I will ship my work with international art together as a group via Fed EX and it will be all boxed together in the same container to be returned to my studio. (So it will be all together for our next show.) I need your work no later than August 24, 2009.
3. IMPORTANT: If you are sending two works, don’t forget to send me a photo of your second piece along with title, size, media, and price. I will add this information to our artist/price list database.
4. We are working on a press release. When it is done, I will share it with you. You can send it to your local press. This is a perfect time to “toot your own horn”!
5. I am assuming all artists will allow their artwork photos to be used for press purposes. If you do not want your photos used for show related publicity, speak up now.
OK. I think that is enough information for now!
If any of you have further questions, email me. :-)
