Riffe Gallery Opportunity
Good Morning Westbridge Members,
Westbridge members have an opportunity to share (and possibly sell) photos they have taken at an Appalachia Ohio Alliance property with the general public through an exhibition at the Riffe Gallery in downtown Columbus. The exhibit will be on display from 8-23 to 10-8-22 outside of the main exhibit at the gallery.
The purpose is to get a conservation message out to reflect work that is being done in Central Ohio and the surrounding area.
Requirements include being a current Westbridge member for the fall 2022 - 2023 season with one entry per artist unless there are additional open spots.In addition to having speakers monthly for educational purposes, Westbridge regularly holds digital and print competitions.
***If you live 50 miles or more from our meetings at Midwest Photo, a special membership price of $25.00 is available.
There is no cost to exhibit your work. The Riffe also does not charge a commission on sales.
Please use this link to preregister for the exhibit - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/appalachia-ohio-alliance-riffe-gallery-exhibition-823-1082022-tickets-397065342127
Images including frames should be no larger than 17 1/2 x 21 1/2 including frame. This would typically hold a 16x20 photo.
No clawtooth hangers.
The buyer and seller will handle any monetary exchanges.
The Appalachia Ohio Alliance exhibition will be housed within a government building and open to the public, and they are unable to support the display of works that include nudity, overly graphic, politically charged, or otherwise offensive content.
There will be 4 movable walls that have 2 sides each. Size: 4’ x 7’, Usually 15 – 25 small to medium sized pieces fit nicely.
When it comes time to deliver artwork we ask:
- Each piece should be clearly identified so there is no confusion when matching label to piece
- Please be sure each piece is “hang ready” wired so that we can attach the works to the movable walls.
- Riffe staff will create labels, but will need information for each piece
- Artist name
- Title of work, year completed
- Price or NFS
- Artist’s Instagram handle, if applicable (and focused on their artwork)
- Property name (i.e. Bison Hollow, etc.)
