Call for Artists
Gallery 101
Monthly Exhibition Opportunity

Local Artists,

Thank you for your interest in being an exhibitor for Gallery 101's new rotating monthly exhibition space. Each month Gallery 101 will host 1-2 artists in the upstairs gallery at its 56 S Lexington Ave Unit 101 location in downtown Asheville. Together you the artist and we the gallery will work to make your exhibition a success.

The following is a breakdown of responsibilities for your exhibition:

Responsibilities of Gallery 101:

  • Writing and distribution of press releases and inclusion on 3rd party online calendars
  • Designing, printing, and distribution of posters and postcards in collaboration with the artist
  • Social Media promotion
  • Planning an opening and/or closing reception including providing food, drinks, and tableware
  • Providing display materials such as pedestals and shelves
  • Printing and hanging print material such as show and artist statements
  • Providing price tags for continuity in the show
  • Providing a check for sales to the artist within 7 days of the event closing

Responsibilities of the artist:

  • Provide images of your work 30 days before the opening of your exhibition. Gallery 101 will then design posters and postcards to your specifications. The artist is responsible for covering the cost of these materials and has discretion on quantities and budget. Both the artist and Gallery 101 will distribute materials to their respective contact lists.
  • Promotion of the exhibition on social media if the artist utilizes it as well as any other avenues the artist traditionally uses for self promotion
  • The option to provide additional display materials especially if they may be specific to the work and enhance the exhibition display

Financial Responsibility to the artist:

  • Deciding and providing the budget for posters and post cards to be used for promotion of the show and distributed by both the gallery and the artist
  • The artist receives 70% of sales and the gallery receives 30% of sales

  • 5 images of your individual work
