Are you interested in exhibiting at the Gallery?
The Kent Farndale Gallery is professionally designed gallery located within Scugog Memorial Public Library in Port Perry, Ontario. It features both ceiling fluorescent fixtures and track lighting. The room measures approximately 24.5 feet by 30 feet [Gallery Floor Plan] and contains a professional hanging system and display pedestals.
Both the responsibilities of the Artist and the Gallery are presented in a contractual agreement well in advance of the exhibition. Selected artists will be contacted to determine a mutually agreed upon date for the setup of their exhibition. Artists must be present for the Opening Reception on the first Saturday of their exhibition.
Artists selected to exhibit their work must have a sufficient quantity of work for display. The artist delivers and sets up the exhibition as agreed upon prior to the show with the Gallery Committee.
A fee for exhibiting will charged to all artists who exhibit in the Kent Farndale Gallery in order to offset some of the normal costs of running the gallery. This fee is comprised of $135 or 20% of sales, which ever is greater. Artists must leave a post-dated cheque for $135, dated for the final day of the exhibition, with the Public Service Coordinator prior to the installation of their exhibition. The cheque will only be cashed if the exhibition does not result in gallery sales providing a commission greater than 20%.
The Gallery will provide publicity by means of press releases to various media and will host an Opening Reception. The Gallery is sometimes used for library programs and meetings while the show is open.
The Gallery invites submissions from emerging and established artists.
