Showing Your Art 
at Art & Lit's Gallery

GALLERY IS NOW FULLY BOOKED THROUGH JULY 2023. 

BUT I'D STILL LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO SHOW!

 

If you think you might like to have a show at Art & Lit, the first step is to send an email to BayViewArtLit@gmail.com telling us who you are and what kind of art you think you might like to show.  We'll take a look at your ideas and the calendar and see whether we both think it would work. 

To get an idea of what we've done so far, you can check out previous shows on this site's "Exhibits" page, or on our Facebook page

If you would like to be on our list to fill in for an artist who might have to cancel at the last minute, please let me know. We could prepare your exhibit and have it ready "just in case."

Setting Up:

Exhibits are typically changed Friday nights or Saturday mornings. Images are attached to walls with removable delicate yellow painters tape. If you're in town, you're welcome to help with installation.

 

Audience:

Choose your own audience from our selection of various humans and/or animals (ducks, geese, chickens) or gallery can choose the audience and change it periodically.

Publicity:

Our street gets a lot of walking traffic due to the nearby Rose Garden and Codornices Park, so it's not unusual for about 200 people to look into the gallery each week. Once your show is up, we'll announce it on our Facebook page and include photos of the prepared exhibit. We can also include any links to other locations you like, such as Instagram, Etsy, or your website. Gallery has room for a QR code to be displayed in the library window, if you like.
Once the show is over we'll add your exhibit images to our website.
