The Nanaimo Art Gallery, 150 Commercial Street, is having a Spring Art Mart from May 12 to May 22, 2010. This is an opportunity for art owners to offer art for sale to the public as well as supporting the Nanaimo Art Gallery through this fundraiser. Check your walls, attic, basement, and closets for original art, limited edition prints, original statuary, etc, that you would be happy to sell. The gallery is offering a commission of 60 percent to the owner, 40 percent to the gallery. Free entry forms are available in both galleries (900 Fifth Street and 150 Commercial street). Works and entry forms can be dropped off at the downtown gallery (150 Commercial Street) from Tuesday, May 4 to Tuesday, May 11, 2010. Entry forms can be dropped off earlier but the works should not be delivered until May 4 though they have to be at the gallery by May 11 as the sale starts May 12.
