B. J. Spoke Gallery is excited to announce a new online membership for artists.
Benefits: Our online members will be able to
• display three images on the bjspokegallery website, along with a brief biography or statement and a link to their own website or email. The gallery will not handle the sales, thus there is no commission due us.
• receive advance notice of gallery receptions and events.
• compete for an invitation to exhibit in our brick-and-mortar gallery at 299 Main Street, Huntington NY. Online members with the most page views will exhibit in a group show.
• receive a 10% discount for purchase of artwork, jewelry or craft.
• receive a 10% discount for showing work in our annual Harvest of Artists show.
• receive the bj spoke newsletter or e zine – a free benefit of virtual membership.
There is no initial application fee. Gallery members will review and select applications. We reserve the right to reject material or applicants if they are not appropriate for the gallery.
Cost: Membership cost will be $50 per month payable quarterly. At the end of the quarter, artists will be able to send new images, if desired. There is no commission due the gallery for any sales that come from our online site.
Images: Visually, the display will be similar to what is currently on our website. Viewers will be able to click on and expand thumbnail images.
Timeline: We are planning to show online members work beginning in October of 2018. Payment and images will be due by September 15, 2018.
How to apply: Send an email to Liz Ehrlichman, email@example.com with the words “online membership application” in the subject heading. Your email must include this information: name, address, email, phone number and website (if you have one) along with the title, medium and size of the original artwork. Six images between 500K and 1M should be attached, each labeled with your name and the title of the work. The gallery will review your images and contact you. Feel free to ask further questions about this new kind of membership in your email.
