Additional advertising (such as postcards, flyers, etc.) is allowed, but is at the exhibiting artist’s expense. The Grand Center for Arts & Culture logo must be present on all promotional material and can be provided upon request. Any additional mailings requested by the exhibiting artist will be charged an extra mailing fee if using The Grand and/or our mailing list.

A brief artist meeting will be scheduled between The Grand and the artist (phone or in person) and take place prior to one month before the exhibit opening. The guidelines, artwork, and artist’s contract will be reviewed and confirmed at that time. The Gallery show fee is due prior to that time.  If you have any questions or comments during the process, please contact The Grand Center for Arts & Culture via phone, email, or by visiting our office.
