Gallery FAQs and Logistics
The image below shows our gallery/performance space layout. The performance space may be used for one-time events associated with the gallery, but will also host improv, theater, music, readings, screenings, etc. by various Iowa City groups throughout the course of each exhibition. You can see documentation of some previous exhibitions here.
What supplies do you provide to artists?
Because we are an almost completely volunteer-run space on a very limited budget, we are not able to cover shipping to the gallery or most materials.
We do provide: promotional exhibition postcards, reception food, basic installation supplies/tools, and white paint.
We can usually provide: b/w printing/copying (up to 11x17") in decent quantities, access to printmaking equipment and an industrial kitchen, homestay accommodations and home-cooked meals for visiting artists, and local scavenging/borrowing for installation items.
tech/furniture available for gallery use:
8 pedestals of varying shapes and sizes
a handful of flat and slanted wall shelves
40" flat-screen monitor with USB and A/V inputs (smart TV)
16" flat-screen monitor with A/V inputs
small portable speaker set
scrolling LED display
random assortment of furniture
Can I sell my work in the gallery?
We are a non-commercial gallery and therefore do not focus on making art sales or showing "sellable" work. However, you are welcome to price your work. If work sells, we ask for a donation of 20% of the sale price. We are also happy to host projects that engage with economies beyond the traditional gallery model.
Can I propose time-based and/or participatory work?
Yes!! We encourage artists to propose performances, screenings, happenings, workshops, etc. either as their project or in conjunction with a gallery exhibition.
