Galleries 1 + 2

Galleries 1 + 2 feature solo and group exhibitions from emerging and established artists. All media welcome and professional artists throughout the US and internationally are encouraged to apply. Exhibitions typically run for 6-8 weeks with an opening reception being held during First Friday Gallery Walks. Many exhibitions include an artist’s talk or demonstration. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. All exhibitions are supported through press, insurance coverage, and small stipends to support the work of artists. Artspace creates an essay and brochure for each exhibition. While Artspace emphasizes the educational aspect of the exhibitions, works of art may be for sale. Artspace takes a commission of 40% on works sold in our galleries.
