I'm working on opening a gallery in Portland Oregon. It will be a community gallery that supports emerging artists by keeping the gallery commission very low while giving them good exposure. Most galleries will take 50% or more, because they have to pay for space, utilities, sales staff and owner salaries. At my gallery, the staff will be the artists, some of whom will have work spaces in the gallery. I will also work there every day, so the gallery will be an open studio where visitors can view art in progress.
Keep an eye on us! I'll be tweeting and facebooking progress on this and other news!
If you know an artist in the Portland area who needs a place to show work, tell them to give me a shout! I'm looking for some great work to show.
