EVENTS AND EXHIBITS
Summer Change-Over at the Hermitage – Wednesday, May 31st, 9 AM – 11 AM
Please email Donna Stufft (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your art information (title, medium, price) by Tuesday night — the 30th. That way she can have the tags ready, and it saves her from making a second trip to Onancock. It also means that the information is available sooner for folks interested in buying a pieces of art, since the brochure will be available the day the new exhibit is hung, and the art will already be numbered.
With our expanded exhibit space there is room for each participant to bring 2 or 3 pieces of art. The Hermitage doesn’t charge a consignment fee on the sale of art in the gallery, but in exchange for that we must manage the exhibits and abide by their security rule: Once work has been hung, it cannot be taken down until the end of the exhibit, unless it sells.
