an intimate space for big ideas
Since opening in 2004, CRS has exhibited paintings, photography, fiber arts, ceramics, and, on occasion, diminutive sculpture. Thus far, we have primarily exhibited artists who are members of the CRS community or with whom we already have some relationship. We have worked with artists who have never exhibited anywhere before as well as with artists who have had gallery representation and many shows. Either way, we try to time our selections so that they may help the artist to take a step forward.
If you are interested in having your work exhibited at CRS, please start by emailing us a link to your portfolio, or jpgs of several images, as well as your bio, resume, and artist statement. Please make sure to make clear what kind of work you want to show in this exhibition and why. If we are interested, we will get in touch to discuss the possible show in more detail.
As our lobby is small and wall space limited (our ceiling height in the lobby is only 7'9" and art work cannot be more than about 40" tall), smaller art works are most practical.
CRS does not currently charge any fee for exhibitions nor does it take any percentage of proceeds from sales of art work. However, if someone does wish to purchase art work on display at CRS, we ask that the buyer contact the artist directly to make the purchase.
Artists at CRS are welcome to have an opening reception but must rent the time to do so. The fee is $45/hr. Use of the Studio for a talk or performance during the reception would be extra.
Artists are responsible for hanging their show by themselves and must provide a catalog/price list, bio, and artist statement for display during the exhibition.
Most exhibitions at CRS last approximately two months. At the end of the exhibition, the artist is responsible for taking down and removing the art works. The artist is also required to spackle and paint any places on the walls that were discolored or damaged.
