Each month a different curator organizes a show – utilizing up to 3 galleries (front, back, mid), divided at the curator’s discretion. Spaces can be shared and shows can include unlimited artists, space providing.
Calls for art should be advertised 1 month in advance of show date. Shows should start first Friday or Saturday of the month and are taken down 5 days before the end of month.
Curator’s responsibilities include:
- Create advertising for social media and print (Call For Art + art show opening flyer)
- Collect all artwork from artists
- Collect agreement sheet (provided by Flemington DIY) from all artists prior to/during drop off
- Coordinate drop off and hanging
- Host opening
- Organize open hours to ensure people see the art!
- Take down artwork
- Repair walls (if needed) and repaint after taking down shows, within last 5 days of month
Fees: A donation of $50-150 total (sliding scale) for month-long shows is strongly suggested and Flemington DIY will receive 20% of all sold works. No one will be denied if this is an issue. Any donations from visitors to shows will go to DIY.
Please note DIY is 100% volunteer run and all collected monies are used directly for operational costs. Your donations, volunteer time, and involvement at Flemington DIY are highly appreciated!
