The South Royalton Market has a small gallery space in the café seating area at the front of the store. We exhibit the work of local artists of all ages. Exhibits typically are on display for one month. Currently, the month of July is the one month that is open in 2013. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in showing your work at that time.
A new tradition at the Market is our Annual Member Show which takes place in November. Any member is invited to submit one or two pieces for consideration.
Anyone interested in pursuing displaying their art, individually or in a group show, is invited to meet with Elizabeth Ferry, Education and Outreach Coordinator, to look at the work and the space together. E-mail: email@example.com.
These are our basic guidelines.
The gallery is viewed by all of our customers and employees. We seek work that is appropriate for a wide range of tastes.
- Landscape, still life, portraiture, and abstracts all have the potential to work well.
- Given the public nature of the space, nudity and overt sensuality is not appropriate.
For Sale/Not for Sale
Work can be for sale or not, as the artist chooses. The Market is not involved in art sales; we will refer any interested customer directly to the artist. In place of a commission, we encourage artists to make a donation of their chosen amount to a local food shelf.
The number of pieces should fill the space pleasantly. Our hanging system consists of three boards, each 10 feet long, with about 24” vertical space between them.
The artist is in charge of hanging the exhibit. Exhibits typically on display for a month, going up on the first Sunday of the month and come down the first Saturday of the next month.
All works, in whatever media, should be framed in a way that works with our simple hanging system. This can be as simple as a mat, clips and glass, or a frame. Some sun falls directly on the display area; please take this into consideration if the media you work is sensitive to light.
Limits of the Market’s Responsibility
The Market’s insurance does not cover artwork. We do, however, take reasonable precautions to provide a safe venue for the exhibit. We are not responsible for any damage to or theft of artwork or frames.
