MinorOak’s original business plan described a rotating display of art, with an art opening for each new display. It took a little over a year to get it started, but now we’re in the thick of it.
- May-July 2018: Maggie Smith of Botanical Bricolage.
- August 2018-? : Ni Claydon
We’re presently looking for artists and photographers who are interested in displaying their work in MinorOak’s front room for future dates.
Here’s the Deal.
- Each Artist in Residence hangs their art on the Gallery Wall for at least two months.
- When new art is hung, we will have a Friday evening opening/private viewing.
- We’ll hang a sign with a photo and bio/artist’s statement if you’d like.
- We’ll hang a sign with a price list
- You will have access to the space on evenings and weekends and can take potential buyers to see your work by appointment.
- You will have opportunities to open the space for all-day retail sales or workshops on weekends at a deeply discounted rate.
- Dee will provide social media publicity and put signs in MinorOak’s windows for your private viewing and your weekend events.
- Please ask Dee for details on costs and commissions. They are set so you can fairly easily make more money than you spend as the Artist in Residence.
If you’re interested, please fill out the form at the edge of your screen. Don’t assume we’re only interested in bland, boring art – but it’s got to be compatible with MinorOak as a workspace.
Footfall at MinorOak
Because MinorOak is a coworking space, not a coffee shop or pub, there aren’t quite as many unique visitors, but it can still be an effective place to display your work. Footfall is increased by:
- Pop-up restaurants (usually one/month)
- Workshops and meetings
- Pop-up makers markets
- Charity events
- Day pass holders
