Retail Space Available!
We are excited to announce that we are offering a retail opportunity to artists looking for an accessible space to show and sell their work! This will be a rotating space, with all sales maintained by a Yards representative. With the momentum we have been gaining as a space, our visitors have been curious to see more art, and notably, more art available for sale.
This projected retail space is located in our upstairs room, directly between the main gallery space and the private studio spaces. This area consists of a white wall that measures 86 inches x 135 inches (w x h) for hanging works, and an adjacent wall of white shelves that are 15.5 inches x 12.5 inches each--excluding the top row of shelves which are 15.5 inches x 23.5 inches. There are 22 shelves in total, which would be perfect for displaying small to medium sized handmade items.
We are offering this area to be utilized by an artist on a monthly basis, starting at $50/month. Additionally, a 15% sales fee to the Yards will be asked to accommodate credit card transaction fees and sales tax. The artist may exhibit any work they choose, accompanied by labels, prices, and an artist bio/business card section. Our space is open to the public on Saturdays from 10am-2pm, and on First Fridays from 6pm-10pm. A Yards representativite who is informed about the artist will manage sales and talk with visitors about the work even when the artist isn’t around. All sales will be made final on the spot, so the customer may collect their purchase(s).
If you are interested in showing your work here, please let us know! A website link will be available below for you to share your work with us. If you do not have a website, send us some images of your work at firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject line [Your Name] Retail Space Photo Submissions. If you have any friends who may be looking for an accessible retail space, spread the word! We are excited to see the diversity and dynamic that taking advantage of this area will bring.
