OUT OF THE BOX PHOTOGRAPHY

With Howard Rubenstein

Wednesday's 7-9pm

5 Weeks: Feb 29th- March 28th

 

$80 WAA Members/$95 Non-Members 

 

Howard can be reached at (401) 294-3581

 

This course is designed for photographers at any level from beginner to professional.  It is for people who know how to use their camera, from pinhole to high end digital.  The object of this course is for all of us to move out of our "box", be it cardboard, wood, or reinforced concrete; to learn to see differently and change the way we think and believe in things relevant to our craft.  There will be lectures, audio, some slides, prints discussed and assignments.

To register please call the gallery

CALL TO ARTISTS!

MARCH 29TH - APRIL 1ST

                                          Fine Arts at The RIBA HOME SHOW

 

This will be our second year of the Fine Arts at the RIBA (Rhode Island Builder's Association) Home Show, and are we excited!  Did you know that last year we had over 20,000 attendees walked through the doors of the Providence Convention Center in only 4 days time! THAT'S A LOT OF EXPOSURE!!

So we invite all artists who create anything that would be considered decorative art for the home to send in your applications for our 2012 RIBA Home Show. This is a juried show as we only have 50 available booths for Fine Artists.

 

WE OFFER OUR EXHIBITING ARTISTS A GREAT DEAL!

We offer 10x10 BOOTH SPACE to artists for a 30% commission fee to be paid to the RIBA Home Show from any sales made during the Home Show. There is a minimum payment of $200, payable upon acceptance into the show.  NOTE: The $200 is NOT in addition to 30%, it is the minimum payment for the booth. It simply means once you have sold more than $670.00 of your art at the Home Show, only then will you begin paying additional money beyond the $200.00,   which is 30% of sales to the RIBA Home Show. 

By the way, these booths sell to the other exhibitors for $1700.00..... The RIBA Home Show gives us artists an exceptional deal!

All Booths Include:

* 10 amp electricity for lighting

 6 foot table

* 2 chairs

* Sales receipts provided by RIBA

* Tons of advertising, including television, radio, Newspapers...

 

HOW DO I APPLY ?

 

Simple. Send us at least 6 images of your work along with the following information:

Name, Address, Phone, and Website (if applicable)
