Avera Prairie Center Rotating Gallery
Thank you for choosing to have your artwork featured at the Avera Prairie Center. Please review the information regarding the procedures for accepted artwork into the Rotating Gallery.
– Artwork must be of appropriate content for our patients and family members that utilize our services. We aim to provide a calming, healing experience for our visitors and are sensitive to their current emotional well-being. With that in mind, we recommend images that are uplifting, inspiring, and thought provoking. We will not accept any artwork that has dark, negative themes or images that do not abide by our Christian heritage and ministry.
– It is encouraged to send samples of your artwork to email@example.com.
– New installations of artwork will hang in the gallery for a three month rotation. The Artist is welcome to change out art if needed during that time frame. The Artist must also be willing to change out artwork if asked by staff from Avera.
– Installations are the first week in the quarter the Artist is featured. The Artist is responsible for installation and take down of artwork. If the Artist is unavailable during those times, arrangements can be made for drop off and retrieval of artwork.
– The Rotating Gallery’s 2018 schedule is: January-March, April-June,
July- September, and October-December.
– Artists are not provided any stipend for the use of their artwork. Avera will not reimburse any Artist for their expenses in producing the art works featured in the Rotating Gallery.
– Avera will provide reimbursement due to damages that might occur to artworks that are installed on the Walker Hanging System. Any artwork that is displayed on easels will be at the risk and expense to the Artist.
– The Artist is encouraged to provide a written statement about the artwork featured, and pamphlets, business cards, etc that viewers may take. The Prairie Center has thousands of visitors each month so this offers a great marketing opportunity.
– Avera does not receive a direct stipend for artwork sold while it has been in the Rotating Gallery. If an Artist chooses to donate proceeds from sold artwork, the Artist would need to contact the Avera McKennan Foundation. Donations should identify the Arts in Healing/Integrative Medicine program as the recipient of the donation.
– Please feel free to inform other Artists of this venue.
– All questions regarding the Rotating Gallery may be directed to Carol Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
