Announcing...our 2012 ARC Exhibitions!

Submitted by FreshArts on Thu, Feb 23rd at 9:17 pm

Hello, everyone!


Since late Spring 2010, Spacetaker has presented a regular Exhibition Series in our Artist Resource Center (ARC) Gallery. As an extension of our professional development services, the ARC Exhibition Series is designed to provide emerging and established artists with an alternative space to show their work outside of a commercial gallery setting and mentor through the process of presenting a public exhibition, from marketing, to pricing, presentation skills, cultivating clientele, and more. During this time, we've had the pleasure of working with several stellar artists with varying levels of exhibition experience and it has been so fulfilling to see each of them grow personally and develop professionally through this process, not to mention make some sales!


So the word must have caught on throughout the artist community about our gallery and exhibition opportunity…because we were happily surprised to receive nearly 50 exhibition proposals in early January, MANY of which were very strong submissions.


This, combined with a decision to slow down our pace ever so slightly and present only seven exhibitions in 2012 (instead of 11, which we did last year), resulted in a much more competitive review and selection process than ever before. There were more worthy proposals/bodies of work than we could reasonably accommodate this year and we appreciate every single artist who took the time to submit a proposal to us.


Without further ado, we are excited and honored to announce our 2012 ARC Exhibition line-up!
