Need some guidance with the artist’s biography? The artist’s biography should always be written in the third person point of view. Consider answering the following questions:
Preference may be given to artists that reside in, have a studio space or a business address in Newmarket, New Hampshire, the directly surrounding towns, and the towns that boast access to the Lamprey River. With that said, all artists who wish to join our community will be considered. You may also include a resume, reviews, press, and/or a link to your website where a body of work can be seen and/or information about your creative endeavors can be explored. With that said, we are interested in emerging artists as well as experienced artists. We believe that all persons are entitled to equal opportunities, and we do not discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, veteran status, physical disability, medical condition, or any other basis prohibited by local, state, or federal law.
Materials may be reviewed by the gallery coordinators and/or other members of the LACA board of directors.
For every work sold, we do a 65/35 (Artist / LACA) split. Monthly checks can be picked up on (or after) the fifteenth of the month. There are no checks in the mail.
