INTAKE/OUT-TAKE:
How our art shows are made

In/Out Days are automatic social events!
Over 40 of your fellow artist-members are coming and going, and there's usually a small table of refreshments to encourage you to stay and see the art, meet the artist.
Remember: you must register your art BEFORE In/Out day (We've give you a few more days: see updated schedule HERE. Our staff Administrator needs time to transcribe your descriptions into a list so we can check you in (Photo: Liz Hamilton and Chris Clark check with Elroy Tanner), create an inventory for accounting, create tags for the wall next to your piece, and use that same list to check you out again next month. One is easy, but with two galleries, we handle a hundred pieces monthly. Register early. Thanks!
