Hello Artist – Thank you for your interest in becoming an artist member! We are very excited to be entering our second year as gallery. We are accepting applications for memberships. We are planning our first art festival for this Fall and have other new programing planned for the coming year.
The Gallery is part of Art Accelerated, a not-for-profit (501(c)(3) organization governed by a Board of Directors. We have put on a number of pop-up art shows (short-term art exhibitions held in a nontraditional space like empty storefronts), open mic (live performance events including literary readings and music held in non-traditional venues such as bookstores, coffee and yogurt shops, open to everyone who wishes to perform). We have partnered with 4H to provide after school and summer art programs school age children. We have a growing adult arts program at the gallery.
We have a two monthly events: Open Mic (3rd Saturday) at YoTime on Main Ave and ArtWalk (4th Saturday) that are sponsored in part by the Chamber of Commerce and downtown merchants. We participate in downtown events as they arise. We have held Paint, Watercolor and Print events and sketch crawls. These fundraisers that help keep costs for artists low. We also have a monthly meeting /dinner that is a chance to get together and learn from artists members. . The gallery is approximately 22 feet by 33 feet and is located at 1906 Third Street, downtown Tillamook The gallery manger and one or two of the board members run the gallery. They have experience in putting on art exhibitions and selling artwork. Works selected for exhibit will remain on display at the discretion of the Gallery Manager(s). The number of works selected will depend upon the membership type, the size of artwork and available space. All artwork must be for sale and original. We have regular shows, change work frequently, and, two juried shows planned for this Fall using different curators.
We are all volunteers. There are no paid staff in the organization. This means that all artist members are expected to perform various duties in running the gallery and to help pay expenses.
