Congratulations to all of the GCAG members who won awards in SASI's "A Fresh Look" competition!!!!!
We are looking for new items to put in the gift shop. If you already have items in our shop, please think about bringing some new things in to give your art a fresh look. If you do not have items in the gift shop, please consider doing so. We retain a 30% commission on all sales but we are no longer charging a gift shop fee.
A number of Guild Members have inquired about possibly renting wall space at Arts on Main. Thus, we are planning on pursuing this idea and offering wall space for approximately 6 months out of the year at the rate of $35 per month for 10 linear feet in the main gallery. Such an exhibit would provide artists with an excellent opportunity to showcase and/or sell their art work. If interested, please send Susan Walker an email at email@example.com.
Do you want to feature your best work for a month in our gallery? Coming soon to AOM, we will have a “FEATURED ARTIST” wall available to rent for $50.
If you are interested in showing your most eye-catching, wonderfully masterful work contact WandaMeekins.
She will make a rental schedule then contact AOM's website and facebook coordinators to advertise your upcoming exhibit.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
We now have studios available for rent!
These studios rent for .70 per square foot with a $25.00 monthly premium charge for a studio with a window which provides natural light. If you are interested in renting a space, please contact Susan Walker at 704-957-3020 or stop by Arts on Main and fill out an application.
