Hello Friends! I have exciting news. 🙂 Last month I was accepted into the Snovalley Art Gallery, a collective Gallery. That means the gallery is run by the Artists. It also means that 100% of my art sales go directly into my pocket! (Awesome!) In private Galleries, it’s standard to take a 50% cut of the sales.
I had to be juried into the Gallery by the other members. I’m one of the only oil painters, so there is a nice place for me here. As part of the membership, we all share in taking shifts and doing tasks to run the Gallery. We usually do four, 3hr shifts per month and the tasks range from social media management, to making signs, and running the member meetings etc.
It’s been a few weeks so far, and I sold 3 paintings and a few greeting cards! Yay! I would say I’m off to a good start. I’m also learning about working in a gallery and what that all entails. I get to see the popular items that sell, and what people are drawn to. I have to say Snoqualmie attracts a ton of tourists from the Salish Lodge and to Snoqualmie falls. Needless to say there are lots of waterfall paintings and prints in the Gallery.
You can find me working in the gallery at various times during each month, I would love it if you came to visit me!! We are open 7 days a week 11am-5pm. 8130 Railroad Ave, Snoqualmie, WA 98065
