GALLERY A is Akron Society of Artists’ own venue for showcasing members’ work. Adjacent to the studio, itself, it is operated in a co-op manner. Exhibitors donate several hours gallery sitting as well as contributing a fifteen dollar application fee which helps cover overhead and modest awards. Shows are judged by local artists. Applicants are guaranteed at least one work in any given show. All sales are conducted through ASA, who retains a 25% commission. Gallery A show hours coordinate with other galleries in Summit Artspace.
I hope the coming show schedule will inspire you to create. I’ve tried to make it versatile and a little fun. Plan your entries now! Click here for entry form.
