Seeking members for artist run gallery in LIC
« on: January 27, 2009, 10:19:34 PM »
Hello all,

An artist run exhibition space is under construction in Long Island City in The Silks Building.   

The building has ample weekend parking, a freight elevator, hardwood floors, 14 ft. ceilings plus vaulted skylights, and large windows with Manhattan views.   The actual size of the space is 500 square feet.

We are structuring it at 10 members which offers 1 solo exhibition and 2 group exhibitions yearly.   A 100 sq. ft. area that is divided off will be allotted for an example of every members work year round.

To start, we will be organizing interns to open the space on Sundays.   The space will otherwise be open by appointment only.

It is also proposed to offer the space for small rentals (readings, photo shoots, etc.) at a reasonable rate.   The profits from these would go into the budget for the space, advertising, etc.

Following are the total costs divided by 10 members.


FIRST MONTH                     497.50 per member

1425. rent (including bills)         142.50
2550. deposits               255.00
500. material costs (wall, desk, paint)      50.00
500. yearly insurance            50.00
                     497.50   

EACH MONTH THEREAFTER               142.50 per member


We are looking for 2 more people to join this group.   The inaugural group show will take place on Saturday, March 7th.
