Basic information about our gallery and our shows: The KAA Gallery is an all-volunteer organization. It is open Thursday-Monday from noon to 4 pm. Artists opening receptions are usually on the first Sunday of the month, except on legal holidays. Artists usually hang their shows on the Friday or Saturday prior to the show’s opening. Shows go until the last Sunday of the month and must remain up until 4 PM. The Gallery commission on sales is 25% for members who are up-to-date on dues payment and 30% for nonmembers. 75% of the pieces in the exhibition must be for sale, unless specifically exempted by the Exhibits Chairperson or the KAA President.
If you receive approval for a showing from the Board of Directors, a contract will be mailed to you. A non-refundable $50 booking fee and a $10 refundable key fee is to be paid upon return of the contract. Contracts are void if not returned within 30 days. Be sure to read the contract carefully.
All artwork will remain at the gallery until the end of the show OR until it is sold. Artists will be contacted for a replacement piece. Please do not ask to borrow a piece of work back for another commitment. Local artists are responsible for providing refreshments for their 4-hour long opening receptions. The gallery will provide coffee, punch, and cups with help from the gallery host or hostess. Refreshments will only be provided for out of town artists. The gallery will also handle publicity for your showing, and will provide the artist with up to 20 postcards for personal mailing and an electronic version of the invitation. The artist may pay for additional cards, and is responsible for personal mailings. The gallery takes care of poster distribution.
