Exhibit in Olney!
Exhibit With Us
The beachKraft Gallery of Olney is offering exhibition space for artists to enrich our community through the visual arts. We host art events, art classes and community gatherings within our exhibition space. We are also a working artist studio, gift shop and custom tattoo studio. We invite artists and art groups to exhibit as part of our artistic adventure!
About the Exhibition Space
The beachKraft Gallery welcomes a wide array of art forms and styles from the traditional to neo-contemporary, and all types and levels of experience. Our space has a semi-industrial feel, including our tattoo studio which serves as an installation depicting our beachKraft airplane.
Solo artist exhibitions will typically be held in the front area of Unit N. The artist will have the 9’9” wide x 7’ high wall space closest to entry and best situated to showcase their work. Additional wall space in the sitting area, approximately 9’ wide x 5’ high may be used to distribute works in the most aesthetic arrangement.
Group exhibitions may be held in the entirety of Unit N, which includes the front gallery as described above for solo exhibitions, and also 3 additional wall spaces, each 7’ in height. These are the main wall - 14’10” wide, secondary wall – 11’7”, and back wall – 6’10”.
Sculpture may be displayed on plinths or the existing shelving in the front gallery.
Installation spaces will be pre-approved by the gallery depending upon space available and compatibility with the gallery environment.
