We are excited to start January 2017 as our second year at the Fresno Art Hub, 2024 N Van Ness, in the Fresno High district, where Echo Street turns into Van Ness at Weldon (closest major streets are McKinley/Palm).
I look back at our Gallery Buzz of one year ago, explaining our ACA gallery space with Fresno Art Hub owner Diane Breuer.
We have 24 feet of a tall wall space. We’ve learned the beautiful 1950s style glass block wall provides diffused light to enhance our paintings. We had great response from ACA members at that first hanging one year ago, and the room echoed with us moving the chains and climbing on the ladder to hang the many paintings. We encourage everyone again to bring paintings and show the beauty we saw when were inspired to create those paintings.
We’ve set our hanging fee at $15 per painting for a two-month duration, which is more reasonable than anywhere you could hang your art.
It’s been great fun hosting the first Thursdays of the month Art-Hop. Diane provides a table where we serve a bit of refreshments to patrons of art who stroll through the area looking for art for their homes and for gifts. There are often musicians to enhance the atmosphere. It's great fun to see people attracted to music and art.
Receiving date: Saturday December 31-- 10 am to 12.
Thursday, January 5-- 5-8pm Arthop night
Thursday February 2 --5-8pm
Art hangs until next receiving date, February 25-- 10 am to 12 noon
Our showcase artist space is dedicated to one artist for one month. There is wall space, space on a movable standard wall and a table area for smaller pieces, cards, or a portfolio. Typically, there is room for 20 medium size paintings. ACA provides a name banner to headline your space. Contact Jeanne Naito at firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie Raymer at email@example.com if you would like a month in 2017 to show off your work. We currently have three months open, including next month, January 2017.
