Xanadu Gallery Expands! Call for Art

We’re Growing | An Invitation to Apply for Representation


submit

For the last several years, sales at Xanadu Gallery have been steadily increasing. Over the last 18 months, the growth in sales has been dramatic. For some time it’s been clear that we could increase our business and increase sales for our artists if only we had more space.  With this in mind, Carrie and I have been looking for opportunities to grow.

Though we weren’t planning to undertake an expansion right away, we found a beautiful space available a block east of our current location. Last week we finalized a deal to lease the space, and over the weekend began moving in and preparing the space for exhibition. With this expansion we are almost doubling our floor  and wall space.

The additional space will allow us more flexibility in showing and selling the work of the artists we represent. When we are featuring an artist’s work in a show in our original space, we will have ample space to continue displaying and selling the work of our other artists. The additional space will also allow us to expand our representation by bringing new artists into the Xanadu family.

Our busiest time of the year is from January to May, and with the new space we have an immediate need to increase our stable of artists. We will begin accepting applications and images today to add 3-5 (depending on the style and scale of selected artist’s work) additional artists to the gallery, and we will complete the selection process in mid-December.

We plan to rotate the inventory of both our existing and new artists through both our new and existing gallery throughout the season.

I’ll be excited to share every step of the process as we get the new gallery inventoried, staffed and artwork selling!

If you are ready to join us by displaying your work in our Scottsdale galleries, I invite you to apply today using the application below.

  3. You said something big was going to happen. I didn’t expect this – it’s fantastic news. I knew if I thought about this too much I’d do nothing. So I already submitted. A shot in the dark but at least I tried. All the best with the new gallery.

  4. Even the empty walls with no artwork yet are beautiful. Is that exposed cable, low voltage lighting I see? Virgin territory just waiting for paintings and the hanging crew. How exciting!

  5. This is so exciting! I have ALL faith that this will work for you! What an adventure for the NEW YEAR. Big congratulations, Jason, let it happen because it will be great.
    All the best,
    Hazel Stone

  10. Congratulations, Jason. Wishing you continued success in all your endeavors. You are a very remarkable person. Thank you for taking the time to share all your valuable art information.

  11. Congratulations Jason to you and your family on this awesome expanded adventure. How exciting it is to add another store to the beautiful work you have. I am hoping to be able to apply to your gallery however most of all my larger artwork is in Michigan and I’m in Florida for the next 6 months with my smaller artwork. I have a few larger pieces here which are all on exhibit at the moment.

  12. Wow!!! Congrats to you and your family, Jason and Carrie! This is a testament to your hard work and most excellent networking with artists. I appreciate you and all you do!

  13. You are definitely doing something right, Jason & Carrie, to be so successful in today’s economy. Congratulations on your new space. I wish you continued success for many more years!

  14. Congrats on your new space – I’m sure it will be a success given all your hard work and expertise. But…I’m getting old I guess. I started showing work in galleries in the late 1970’s. Never thought I’d see the day when artists had to PAY to get a gallery to look at their work. That seems to be the trend, though – artists paying for more and more of the “services” that galleries used to do – mailings, advertising, hosting receptions, etc. etc.

  15. Thank you, Jason. But after I uploaded the images I still can’t pay the fee either with a card or PayPal. It is not workling. What should I do? It show it’s still loading, though I have already uploaded 5 images. Thanks

  16. Jason, It’s exciting that you are expanding with another gallery location. I appreciate your sending the invitation to apply for representation in a physical location in Scottsdale. Please send further details about your commission percentage on sales, time-line for rotating an artists inventory, payment to the artists schedule and any other pertinent artist/gallery agreement information.
    Thank you again. I look forward to receiving your reply. Helen
