Be Part Of A New Local Artists Collective – ‘The Little Red Hen’

From those who brought you the, ‘Gallery in the House‘ now there’s, ‘The Little Red Hen‘ an exciting new member-supported exhibition and engagement space, coming to Peterborough’s arts district this summer (opening July/August). With room for two galleries (one solo, one group); an office; a common kitchen; and a flexible multi-purpose room (rentable by the hour, half-day, day, or month) for meetings, workshops or individual workspace, the space is certain to quickly become a hub of the arts community.

To make it happen, we are seeking applications from professional artists, (emerging to established), who are regularly creating work and can commit to 12 months of membership fees (pay all 12 months at once for 1 month free!). We are interested in showing work in any media so long as it’s locally produced, visually interesting, and critically engaging. Curator Elizabeth Fennell will consider the applications.

Membership has two levels (“Leaven” at $20/month & “Loaf” at $50/month), both of which include 10% commission on works sold through the gallery (this is not an exclusive representation arrangement, you will be encouraged to show elsewhere as well). Members can be visual artists, craftspeople, or artisans, ideally producing works for sale on a regular basis.

If you are interested in applying for membership at this unique space please email, by May 10th, 2012, with the following:

– A cover letter outlining your interest in the project and introducing yourself.
– Artist Statement (the media, technique, theme or context of your artwork).
– Current Curriculum Vitae (A Chronology of your Training, Past Exhibitions)
– 5-20 digital images.
– Relevant support material (articles, reviews, catalogues, etc.)
– Please indicate which membership level you’re interested in.
