What we provide
Spark is a space for people to exhibit work professionally in an independently run artist space. Spark provides two large adjoining rooms for exhibition space as well as the community that supports and surrounds Spark art shows.
What we need from you
A concrete date for your event.
A filled out proposal form and a signed consignment form.
The proposal is linked here: SPARK BLANK PROPOSAL
Once that proposal is filled out and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org a liaison will get in touch with you and figure out a rental fee, once a fee has been agreed upon you’ll write that up that in a consignment form.
The consignment form is linked here: SPARK BLANK CONSIGNMENT
Space usage terms
When Spark is rented, it means that it must return to it’s original state. Holes from hanging, nailing and wall damage must be repaired (i.e. spackled and painted). Trash from the event must be removed and not allowed to be thrown away off site by the renter. Any damage that occurs as the result of the show must be paid for by the renter. All shows must end at 11pm
When can I start installing for my show?
Your install will be coordinated with the gallery managers; however you can not hammer into the walls any earlier than 9 am or any later than 11pm at night.
How long can my show go until?
All Spark shows MUST end by 11pm.
I want to have my show advertised on the Spark Facebook page and this website- what should I send you to do this?
Jpg photos of your event flyer, date and times, and a paragraph or so of information about your event. This information is asked in the proposal form and should be filled out in advance of your show if SPARK is to advertise on social media on your behalf.
Our event has so much trash- can’t I just put it in your dumpster?
So sorry but absolutely no excessively large amounts of trash are allowed in our dumpster- your event’s trash is your responsibility and it has to be disposed of off site. Any extra trash in the space will result in a fee or the renter not being allowed to rent from Spark in the future.
I don’t know how to spackle and fix gallery walls so I can’t repair the space to it’s original condition- what do I do?
Just do it- It’s easy as hell. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIPYwuEPeDg
Do you have seating for poetry or performance events?
We have about 20-25 chairs available.
Can I paint the walls?
As long as the gallery returns to its original state by the end of your de-install allotment you are allowed.
How do I get you guys the money for the space? Can I pay by credit card?
We accept cash only, payment preferred when install is occurring.
