A Guide to Your Successful Membership
Time to renew your membership?
- PLEASE REGISTER THE WORK THAT YOU PLAN TO EXHIBIT AT LEAST 5 DAYS PRIOR TO CHANGE OF SHOW by sending the following information to KAREN RUSSELL at [email protected]: Your name, title of work, medium, price & your phone number. This allows us to print the wall tags early so that we can open the gallery on change of show day.
- MAXIMUM SIZE 36″ x 40″ including frame.
- MINIMUM SIZE 8″ X 8″
- MAXIMUM WEIGHT 12 lbs
- Paintings must be completely dry, not wet or tacky either on the surface or edges of the piece.
- PLEASE NOTE: In 2020 during the COVID pandemic, SOBA Gallery made several changes to fill our walls and keep our doors open. One of them was to allow staffing members to exhibit 2 pieces each month. Now that the number of members is even higher than pre-pandemic levels, we must resume our policy of one piece per month for each member, regardless of staffing status.
Unframed Wall Art
SOBA is not responsible for lost or damaged art work.
WORK LEFT AT SOBA FOR MORE THAN 30 DAYS becomes the sole property of the gallery. SOBA will make reasonable attempts to contact the owner of artwork left over 30 days. If the art is still not picked up, it will be disposed of in a manner decided upon by SOBA.
Featured Artist Exhibit
Here's what you can expect.
Each month, SOBA gallery changes over to display new artwork from select member artists. The honor of being Featured Artist is awarded by the Board to members who have indicated they are interested in being chosen, who have been a member for at least a year, who have consistently exhibited excellent work in the gallery and who have participated in events and projects to support SOBA’s work.
Artist members should contact the Vice President who is the board liaison for Featured Artist Exhibits with their wish to be chosen. The liaison will be responsible for all arrangements. Your expense will include the cost of your reception and posters and cards, SOBA pays for advertising, videos and press releases. We welcome your interest.
