What Makes this event different?

ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a non-profit, woman-run cooperative gallery that provides alternative space exhibition opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery system. Since1973 ARC has given exposure and support to artists, providing an atmosphere for the continued development of artistic potential and experimentation. ARC Gallery’s Exhibitions Committee reviews all media including video, film, installation and performance. We prefer to see a body of related work that would be the basis of an exhibition at our gallery.

ARC encourages submissions and proposals for solo exhibitions, group shows and curated shows.

ARC is run entirely by its women artist members; as a non-profit exhibition space. ARC receives some support from outside funding sources but not enough to cover our operating expenses. To provide the space and services we offer to exhibiting artists, we defray our expenses by charging exhibition fees. Each of the rental spaces in the gallery actually costs twice as much as we charge the artists. The members of the gallery and the Educational Foundation subsidize each of the spaces by an additional $750.00 each month.

Included in the rental fee:

Sale of Work: ARC does not take commission for work sold, but instead acts as a liaison for sales.

Installation: Professional installation and de-installation of your show by ARC Gallery’s crew according to gallery guidelines (exceptions: artist’s site-specific installation).

Documentation: Shows are documented on ARC Gallery’s website with the image, title and statement sent by the artist along with their website link. ARC digitally documents each show and retains the images for our gallery archives. It will then be archived, along with all of ARC Gallery’s 35 years of documentation, in the Ryerson Library of the Art Institute of Chicago for future scholarly research.

Gallery Hours and Opening Reception: ARC members staff the gallery Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6 pm and Sunday from noon to 4 pm. A cash-donations bar is set up and maintained by ARC members during an artists’ reception.

Advertising: Monthly listings, press releases and e-announcements are sent to our mailing list of approximately 2,000 names which is updated regularly and includes the following sources: private individuals, gallery owners, critics, collectors, colleges, newspapers, museums, radio and television stations.
