Walls are sheetrock and you may hang work right on the wall. Each participating artist will recieve their name in vinyl, printed labels for work, and the opportunity to have work available during the holiday shopping season. Entry is $40 and the form will close once the gallery is full. Creative Competition will go on in The Backspace as normal, so feel free to also bring one piece for that exhibit as well, see info below!

Make note: All art must be installed by 2pm on Friday. We will hang the Creative Competition work, but not the work for the Showcase unless assistance is needed. To participate in the Showcase you must fill out this form first with information for the labels and payment. To have your name printed in vinyl we ask that you email us or fill out this form by or before Wednesday, December 3rd.  If you have trouble with this form, please email us at spacegalleryvt@gmail.com.

Vintage Inspiration, works by Johanne Yordan

‘Vintage Inspiration’ by Johanne Yordan consists of 20 works ranging in size from 8″ x 8″ to 16″ x 16″, all using found and homemade papers. The colors and patterns are reminiscent of the 60′s and 70′s which consisted of varied gold, brown, avocado green, orange and aqua palettes. Working on this series brought Johanne back to a time gone by as she realizes that what is old can be new again.

American Plaid

First Friday Opening Reception: Friday, July 4 from 5 – 9 pm

4th of July at The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery brings an art show focused on the colors red, white, and blue; creating an ‘American Plaid’ motif to the gallery walls.

While you’re there, be sure to vote for your faves in the Creative Competition!
