Chaos Exhibition Gallery

 

May 12 through 

June 10, 2018

 

The AiM galleries have been filled with a variety of subjects and mediums from the beginning, consequently Chaos exhibitions have prevailed. As we host monthly themed exhibits, we realize many artists have excellent work that does not fit into the criteria of the current theme.  Therefore, we want to reserve the rear gallery for art that explores a variety of subjects and mediums.

A Request & Invitation

 

All artists are invited, though not required, to gallery sit once during the run of the exhibition they have been juried into.  AiM requests exhibiting artists to take a vested interest in the organization’s programs.  It is here for you and the local arts community.  By asking artists to gallery sit, AiM has determined the commission rate needs to be favorable for the artist.

 

What is involved? One - 5 hour shift during open hours, Wednesday-Sunday (12-5).  If the artist cannot commit, friends and family are welcome to substitute.

 

Artists are invited to paint, draw, work on their computers and/or read!  If one does create art while in the gallery, it is an educational demonstration for the visitors. Visitors enjoy talking to the artists about their work and has led to sales and commissions. 

 

AiM is a young growing nonprofit and relishes the involvement of the artists to make it happen!

 

*All artists selected into the exhibit will be asked to contribute (finger food or drinks) to the opening reception.
