THE GALLERY

Our Gallery can be rented out for small (50 guests and under) ground meetings or gatherings on weekdays only (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). Please inquire for rates and availability. We do not rent out artwork display space in our galleries. To apply for a gallery exhibition of your artwork, please see our Call to Artists on our Gallery Page.

DEPOSITS + FEES

A down payment of 50% of the rental fee plus a security deposit of 25% of the rental fee is required to secure the rental date(s).

Example:

For a non-profit event, the amount necessary to secure the date is $1,350.

The balance of the rental fee is due two (2) weeks prior to the event. A rental contract will be processed upon receipt of a down payment. The security deposit is refunded within 10-14 business days following the event, less the cost of additional rental items.

 

The security deposit is forfeited if the client cancels the event. An event cancellation of 30 days or less will result in forfeiture of the 50% deposit.
