Help Needed for the Arts in Vermont
We are trying to raise funds on Indiegogo for renovations to an art gallery & gifts/classroom in order to promote the arts in Vermont. Follow the link for all the information, photos, updates, artists and more!
Arabella Gallery and & Gifts is not just another art gallery. Each and every item at the gallery is created with the loving hands of the artist; nothing mass produced or imported will be sold at Arabella. Most of the artwork in the gallery will be locally made. I am looking at paintings, photography, pottery, home décor, jewelry, fiber goods, hats, bags, and other gifts.
If you are someone who would like to show and/or teach at Arabella, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with images representing your work, medium, price and complete contact information!
Another important aspect of the gallery will be the classroom where I will offer art classes taught by a variety of experts in their respective medium. I will be teaching a variety of jewelry making techniques both basic and advanced and I will have guest instructors come in and share their knowledge and skills. I will have live music occasionally, poetry readings and a knit night where you are invited to come, relax, bring whatever you are working on and socialize. I will sponsor free demos in a variety of mediums for the community.
Although the classes will be very reasonable I would like to begin a scholarship for those who otherwise could not take classes. If I can surpass my goal, we'll begin have a good start!
