Salon de Art

Salon de Art- Art Sale and Exhibit

December 9 - January 7, 2012

The Chico Art Center will rent wall and floor space to artists from December 9 through January 7. Wall space of approximately 48 inches wide from floor to ceiling, and floor space of 4 feet square will be rented.

Artists will install their own work between Dec. 6, 7, 8, from 10am-4pm. The resulting display of art will open on Friday, December 9, for the Chico Artabout.

CAC is taking names for a reservation list which will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Artists will then choose their space within the gallery based on their numerical position on the reservation list.

This is a four week time frame which will run several weeks prior to Christmas and run a week after New Year's. We anticipate this will be a lucrative time with good sales opportunity for artists selling their work*. However, artists may exhibit their work as not-for-sale if they choose.
(*Artists will not be required to pay commission on the sales of their work.)

The rate is $100.00, per unit of space. Artists may sign up for as many spaces while they last, but there is no discount for multiple spaces. Artists using floor space may use their own pedestals or we have a limited number to loan (first-come-first-served).

Contact CAC for more information. You must sign-up in person and pay the fee to be added to the list. CAC will stop accepting fees after 30 spaces have been reserved and place names on a wait list. You will be contacted if a reserved space drops out and must come in to reserve the space by paid fee.

Also in the lobby gift shop, artworks by the late, long-time CAC member and local watercolor artist, Hazel Eissinger, will on display during this time. Hazel, who recently passed away at the age of 91, was a member since moving to Chico with her husband Andy in 1964. She will be missed by all of us at CAC.
