Headwaters welcomes artists who are interested in displaying their work in our recital hall to apply for a month long exhibit. Applications are reviewed by Headwaters staff; there is no cost to apply or participate.
Exhibits are hung by the artist, who is are expected to have a knowledge of how to hang art in an aesthetic manner. Artists who exhibit their work at Headwaters are expected set up as well as to pack up their exhibit during the agreed upon time frame, and to take part in the First Friday Art Walk exhibit opening during their designated month. If the artist wishes to have their work for sale to the public Headwaters will process any sales and retain 20% of proceeds. The artist is responsible for any packing or shipping of artwork for customers. We can provide pedestals and minimal tools / assistance, but artists are asked to come prepared. The work is generally hung for a month (this may vary). Headwaters will post about the event on our website and on Facebook, as well as create some marketing materials.
