Gallery North Newsletter
A lot of effort, but well worth it!
Organizing a juried show of outside artists work takes a tremendous amount of effort by many people, and as you know, our gallery is a self supporting co-op, so all the artists shoulder down and get the extra work done. Why? We believe this is a benefit to our community, exposing them to over 150 new artists nation wide…and we believe this is a benefit to other artists who are working to build their portfolios. It is hard to get in to traditional galleries without a significant resume of shows. Not all of the artists, however, are portfolio building professionals. Many are skilled amateurs who do the work simply for the love of it. We hope you will come by this month to see the fine work on display…and perhaps consider adopting a piece while you are here.

Free Art? What’s the catch? : We call it the Peoples Choice Award. Drop by the gallery and ask to vote. Fill out a short form and chose your favorite piece in the gallery. At the end of the month, one name is randomly drawn from the votes. The winner is contacted to come pick up a piece donated by one of our talented artists.
