CALL TO ARTISTS

The CAA is calling all artists who are current members of the Cultural Arts Alliance to submit an application to be considered for the 2020 – 2021 Winter Rotation of The Foster Gallery located in Grand Boulevard’s Town Center.   


Please study the criteria and submit application ONLINE prior to 11 pm on November 29, 2020.

ABOUT THE FOSTER GALLERY 

The Foster Gallery is named for the late Susan Foster, a founder of the Cultural Arts Alliance.  It is an artist collective featuring regional artists and special exhibitions on a quarterly rotating basis.  We host artist receptions and openings, workshops, events, and serve as a community gathering point symbolizing the support the CAA strives to give artists in our community, especially those who are members of the CAA.  

GALLERY LOCATION AND HOURS OF OPERATION 

Located at 495 Grand Boulevard, Suite J-104, Miramar Beach, FL  32550, the 2020 - 2021 Winter Rotation will mark the gallery’s move to a new larger, centrally located space at Grand Boulevard. Hours are daily 12 pm – 7 pm.

HOW IT WORKS 

Ten (10) to fifteen (15) artists will be selected for each rotation. Each artist must commit to one of the following two staffing options.  

Option 1:  Work a minimum of twelve (12) shifts throughout the rotation. Shifts are approximately seven (7) hours. Schedules will be coordinated by CAA Executive Director and Director of Administration. Shifts may be traded among artists, but CAA management must be notified prior to shift changes.  

Option 2:  Do a staff buyout of $800, which enables the CAA to cover the cost of staffing your shifts. The artist is not obligated to work any shifts. Option 2 is only available up front as a full buyout.  

Artists must also be available to attend the rotation opening reception. Artists are encouraged to utilize the gallery for their own special events in order to promote their work. The sales split is 60% artist and 40% CAA. The CAA is responsible for all overhead, including rent, utilities, commissions, marketing, event costs, and insurance of the gallery and its contents. All sales will be processed through the CAA, and artists will receive bi-weekly settlements. Any sales will include a 5% commission to the artist on duty. The gallery features ongoing special exhibitions throughout the year and may also host invitational at the CAA’s discretion.
