"Art is Business" reposted for Laura Engel

Deadline to submit Nov 11, 2017
Hello International Art Group

I have offered International Artists Group a group show in December at my gallery, Second Story Studios. It is a boutique gallery located on Devon Avenue in the heart of Indio/Pak neighborhood. The gallery is a shared space (with radio host, Chuck Mertz) and located above Cary’s Lounge.

Opening Reception Saturday, December 16th
Closing Reception Saturday, January 20th

Submissions are online. Simply email me 2 to 3 images of the art you would like to include in the show along with size and medium.

Deadline for submissions is Saturday, November 11th. (Veteran’s Day to help you remember!)

Based on the amount of submissions, I will get back to you individually with details on which pieces to bring, title and price for the labels, etc. For all artists that are selected to exhibit, there will be a $20 fee to cover Facebook advertising and other costs. We will have a potluck for appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks. Due to zoning, alcohol must be purchased at the bar located downstairs.

Attached is a flyer which I encourage you to share with your artist friends.

If you are interested in seeing the gallery, we have an opening reception this Saturday (October 14th) from 3:00 PM - 10:00 PM featuring the work of Dave Suarez and Kelly Anderson. We just installed all new track lighting, so I am very excited with the progress of the gallery. Please do stop in and introduce yourself to me!

Thank you,
