Dear Artist:

Green Kill is calling for submissions for  Green Kill Art Exhibition Program for the 2018 exhibition year.

The Green Kill Art Exhibition Program at Green Kill:

There are two exhibition rooms at Green Kill which are subdivided creating  10 spaces ( see floor plan is at the bottom of this page). Nine of those spaces are for art installations.

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.

Nine months are reserved for group shows and three months are for solo shows.

Cost Formula:

A small fee is applied to each space to help cover costs for maintenance, electricity, taxes, insurance, and other operating costs. The foremost objective must be to underwrite operating costs so that Green Kill can be sustained.

The cost per space for the front room is $30 dollars. The cost per space for the back room is $20 will still apply.  So solo shows are more costly for artists because they must account for the cost of space they occupy.

In some special cases, artists  may partner, subdivide the individual spaces, and divide the costs.

Green Kill expect 40 percent commission on art sales. The Artist receives 60 percent. If the sale is brokered by another gallery, Green Kill expects 25 percent the other gallery receives 25 percent and the artist receives 50 percent.

Selection Process:

The process is open and organic with a focus on inclusion of  exceptional outsider and established artists dedicated to the evolution of their work.  Green Kill is not intereste in eye candy, rather it’s seeking soul food, artists enchanted by the idea of soul.

Artists can contact Green Kill at 229greenkill@greenkill.org or they may be recommended.

Artists will be local, national and international.

Cautionary words — If you are looking for a vanity arrangement, this is not your opportunity.

The Primary Reasons for the Green Kill Art Exhibition Program:

•To provide access and opportunities for art lovers and for art buyers with individual aesthetic preferences.

•To create ongoing promotional and sales opportunities for artists.

•To fulfill the Green Kill mandate which is to be a working model of inclusion.

International Section:
