The new branch of East West Organics in New Lynn, Portage Rd will sell organic produce, have a cafe, a garden center, a healing center upstairs and right at the front door an art gallery that hopes also have nz made crafts and goods. Being open 7 days a week will give the gallery plenty of foot traffic, good opportunity for sales and acknowledgement as an artist. The space is clean and fresh with good lighting.
OPPORTUNITY – CALL FOR ARTISTS
We are looking for artists keen to be a part of the new venture. Art work and artists will be chosen on an individual basis to suit the space and vision of EWO. Artists do not have to be fully qualified or have years of experience but do need to have work of a high standard. We welcome inspiring new artists to be involved as well as established artists.
There will be an opportunity to exhibit on the feature wall for a 3 week show or have individual works displayed within the gallery space or around the building in prominent positions. Commission will be 25% and fee to hang will be fair and affordable based on the space required for the work. Posters can be designed and Artists will be acknowledged on the website. Artists needing insurance for their work should be aware that it is their own responsibility to acquire it. There may be time to sit in at the space if artist would like to promote their work and get some experience in a gallery.
STUDIO SPACE FOR ARTISTS
Funding is being sought to help support studio spaces which are presently in negotiation with land lord. The costs would be reasonable and provide an area where artists can work solo or come together with like minded people. There may be space to do workshops and also be a part of the big picture that EWO is evolving into regards the arts. Now is a good time to show your interest and secure your future involvement.
