The Green Kill Art Exhibition Program at Green Kill:

There are twelve shows each year which have openings on the first Saturday of the month. Shows close on the 27th or 28th depending on the number of days in the month.
A small fee of 20 dollars is requested from each artist per space to help cover costs for maintenance, electricity, taxes, insurance, and other operating costs which is non refundable and paid at the time the artist agrees to show. The foremost objective must be to underwrite operating costs so that Green Kill can be sustained.
In special cases the sections can be subdivided but still the cost is 20 dollars per artist. The request for a fee is waived for International artists with the understanding that international artists will underwrite their shipping costs.
Green Kill expect 40 percent commission on art sales. The Artist receives 60 percent. If the sale is brokered by another gallery or guest currated, Green Kill expects 25 percent the other gallery or guest curator receives 25 percent and the artist receives 50 percent.
The process is open and organic with a focus on inclusion of exceptional outsider and established artists. Green Kill seeks talented artists who are personally invested in their art, whose work conveys an individual sense of the world and who help us understand our humanity and the historical conditions in which we live. Poetically speaking, we are looking for artists whose art is in their blood and see their art as a life long pursuit.
Green Kill is a reserved for Fine Art. In the strictest sense, Fine Art is considered a visual object with no functional purpose except to be admired and contemplated as an aesthetic object. Decorative Art, however, is also visual and aesthetically pleasing but serves a useful function such as a piece of furniture, tableware, textiles and so on.
