The gallery retains 10% of all sales. As a resident artist, you are encouraged to attend all opening and First Friday events and help promote via social media, post card mailings, etc. You will be asked sit the gallery 3 - 6 times a year (outside of your solo show) and are required to attend your opening & First Friday receptions, sit two Sundays or a Saturday and Sunday of your show. You are required to make a one year commitment to the gallery but the gallery holds no exclusivity of where your art hangs.
Associate Artist: artist has a 10'x8' wall in the resident artists gallery for one month with "opening" during the First Friday Art Walk from 5 - 9pm. Wall faces the side walk. Artist also has work in the resident artists gallery year round and is invited to participate in group shows and any outside events.

The process to be selected is a two round process. The first is a digital submission of (5) pieces that represent your current body of work in JPEG format (one of these should be an image of a grouped hanging/staging of your work) and not to exceed 2MB per image, along with title, size, price and medium, and why you want to be a part of Valkarie Gallery. These images will be reviewed along with your answer and voted on by the current resident artists. Those that make it to the second round will be asked to schedule a time to meet with us and present their work in person. New art can be created for the selected show as long as it maintains the same style as the work originally submitted.
Deadline to apply is September 30th, midnight. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
