Original art adds color, warmth, beauty and sophistication to any setting.
Your customers love to see fresh local art created by local artists. Especially, when they can buy it right off the wall if they love it.
"Having original artwork on the walls of our space adds so much life, but finding and coordinating appropriate artists on our own is a time-consuming task. The Creative Arts Society makes it so easy for us — they find the artists, curate the art, and hang the art. We get beautiful pieces to enjoy, and we all get so excited when someone decides to purchase an artists work. The whole experience is extraordinary!" — Shelley Delayne, Founder, Orange Coworking
CAS will curate, manage, and install a fine art exhibit that will fulfill your aesthetic vision and compliment your space with minimal time and effort on your part.
The Creative Arts Society is pleased to offer Art Exhibit Services for venues such as hotels, restaurants, salons, and office buildings to enhance their environments by installing a custom art gallery managed entirely by the Creative Arts Society.
CAS can install an art gallery in your location at absolutely no cost or liability to you—our artists all sign liability waivers.
We will work with you to determine what kind of exhibit best fits your space and develop a plan and exhibit schedule that integrates into your business seamlessly. Every aspect of the art hanging is managed by CAS and all that remains for the venue owner is to simply enjoy your wonderful new art gallery.
Choose from three gallery types:
The Standard Gallery
The standard gallery rotates bi-monthly or quarterly at the venue owner’s discretion and features a wide array of art work submitted by talented artists from the extensive CAS membership of over 100 local artists. Artworks include paintings in oils, pastels and acrylics as well as mixed media, photography, digital art and sculpture offered in very affordable pricing ranges. The showcase of artwork will dazzle your clientele and add vibrant color and atmosphere to your space. You can leave all the work and the entire art exhibit up to CAS trusting in the creation of a beautiful diverse local art exhibit and leaving you more time to focus on your business. All of this is available to your venue free of charge because CAS is a local non-profit who’s mission is to promote the development of the “Artist in Everyone” for the expanding growth and diversity of our community.
The Curated Gallery
This option is designed for the venue who seeks a consistent gallery presentation in their space. Each curated exhibit will feature the art of just one or two artists selected by a venue representative from the CAS Portfolio of Artists. These shows are managed by the CAS curator but installed and planned by the exhibiting artists.
Experienced members of the Creative Arts Society submit representative images for inclusion in the “Portfolio of CAS Artists”. This portfolio is made available to interested venues seeking artwork. The venue chooses the artists from the pool and works with a CAS curator to custom design shows for the coming year.
These are juried, once a year events. If your space is only available at certain times of the year, we can fill it with fine art! Our juried exhibits are competitive and result in some of the best that CAS has to offer. Juried exhibits features an array of art work submitted from a juried pool of talented artist members. Artworks can include paintings in oils, pastels and acrylics as well as mixed media, photography, digital art and sculpture. You also have the ability to limit the media, content and define any unique parameters for these exhibits in many ways. Previous CAS Juried Exhibits have included The Dougherty Arts Center, Bass Concert Hall, Link & Pin Gallery, and Riverbend Gallery to name a few.
How long? How often? You tell us!
Any type of Exhibit Gallery can be one-time only, annually, or rotated as you choose. CAS simply needs a little setup, change-out and strike time to manage whatever type of show you would like. CAS can rotate exhibits bi-monthly or quarterly at the venue owner’s preference. We will set an exhibit schedule for ongoing rotating shows with our membership to ensure you are able to enjoy fresh new pieces of artwork on a regular basis.
Never a blank spot…
While artists love to show their work, they really love to sell a piece of art.
Here’s how that works: Each piece of art has a discrete small professional looking white tag posted beneath it with the title of the piece, the artist’s name and contact information, and the price. If someone is interested in purchasing a piece, he or she contacts the artist and arrangements are made to deliver the art and rehang a replacement so there’s never a blank space in the gallery and you will never have to handle a sale. CAS coordinates all sales directly with the buyers.
Also, all art installed by the Creative Arts Society is family-friendly and the venue owner or manager always has the final say as to what will hang in its gallery. CAS art exhibit services come with no cost, no liability, and no hassle; our services are free to the venue, and our artists sign liability waivers and agree to manage any sales that may occur. If you have great space for fresh original local art, we got you covered. Thats what we have been doing for 20 years in Austin, Texas.
"The art presented by the Creative Arts Society and displayed in Texture restaurant is enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing. Our partnership with CAS has given us the opportunity to align our hotel with a local non-profit agency supporting the arts. Our guests and clients enjoy viewing the art work during visits to the hotel and while dining."
