Guidelines for Artist Rental

  1. West Gallery rental is available to all River Arts’ members on a first come first serve basis.  Solo, duo or group shows are permitted. All showing artists must be members of River Arts.

  2. River Arts does not take a commission on sales from the West Gallery rental shows. We pass the cost of credit card sales back to the artist at the rate of 5% of the sale. All sales will be made through River Arts and we will make Sales Tax payments to the state of Maine.  River Arts pays artists promptly the week after the show comes down.  All showing artists must provide contact information: phone, email and mailing address.

  3. Rentals are available for 2 week blocks beginning on Thursdays and ending on Wednesdays.

  4. Rates for 2 week blocks:     $400 Summer (June – Sept)

                                                      $300 Transition (May, Oct, Nov, Dec)

                                                            $200 Winter  (Jan – April)

  1. There is an extra charge for blocks of time which include a River Arts Opening in the Main Gallery (Summer $100; Transition & Winter $50).

  2. 50% deposit reserves a booking. The remainder is due two weeks before the show.  In the case of artist cancellation, refunds of deposit will only be made up to one month before the show.
