Bowery Gallery Invitational
Has anyone done this, and is it worth it?
It's a co-op that doubles as a vanity gallery. Do the math, is it worth it? Jan. 14, 2013, 8:15 a.m.

Well, at least they're no pretending to be anything they're not - this is from their website

2013 Bowery Gallery Invitational Exhibitions

The Bowery Gallery will exhibit the work of artists living at least 100 miles outside the New York City area from June 18 - July 6, 2013 (first slot) and July 9 - 27, 2013 (second slot). This will be the 29th year of such invitational exhibitions. Two or three artists may share an exhibition, in which case they must apply together.

Ten years ago, the gallery inaugurated a new space on West 25th Street in New York's Chelsea district. The exhibition space measures about 900 square feet, which can either be configured as a single rectangle or divided by a moveable partition to accommodate a two-person exhibition. There is an adjoining bathroom and elevator. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

The cost to the artist is $3,700.00. This covers:

• Gallery staffing
• Gallery Guide listing and Chelsea Art Map listings
• Space for poster in vitrine on street level outside building
• Gallery mailing list of over 1,000 preaddressed mailing labels
• All ongoing gallery expenses: electricity, rent, and telephone (there will be a small charge per outgoing calls)

Artists will be responsible for:

• Announcement design, printing expense and mailing
• Postage expense
• Installation and removal of exhibition
• Reception refreshments

State law requires artists to collect and remit to the NY State Tax Department 8.375% sales tax on all in-state sales delivered to Connecticut and New Jersey.

We will review slide applications and digital images on CDs at our fall 2012 and winter 2013 meetings. The deadline is March 1, 2013. If you are interested, please send 20 slides and/or a CD accurately representing the work to be exhibited, a resume and a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage for return of materials.
