Additionally, for each annual exhibition the juror awards first second and third place to the recipients, with prizes of $500, $300 and $200 respectively.

Join

join-gallery-110Gallery 110 is an artist run gallery which supports emerging artists. The gallery is dedicated to the presentation of high quality and challenging visual art and to the development and promotion of artists’ careers. Collectively, members share in the work of the gallery and have the opportunity to build on or share their skills in marketing, arts event coordination, as well as exhibition development, management, and installation.

  • Opportunities to participate in public programming, artist talks, and public events.

Members propose and develop exhibitions for the gallery as well in other outside opportunities. We occasionally show work by non-member artists who are invited in as a part of a curated exhibition or who have developed an exhibition that includes our members. The exhibition schedule evolves from members readiness to show rather than a fixed formula allocating time to each member. The membership functions as a team promoting each other’s work and creating cultivating opportunities. Our dues, fees, and fundraising efforts cover our basic operating expenses and allow us to pass a large portion of income from sales back to the artist. All members are expected to participate in the work of running the gallery through committee and task assignments. Hours required vary and generally do not involve staffing the gallery during business hours.
