Catching Stars Gallery is located in the HUB of Snug Cove - the Heart of Bowen Island. We represent local and regional artists. The Gallery showcases artwork, home décor, gift items and crafts of a professional quality. We are looking for different groups of Artists.
Associates: These artists are the front line, lifeblood and backbone of Catching Stars Gallery. Associates receive a larger percentage of their art sales (85%) 1. Associates agree to volunteer a minimum of 1 day per month in the gallery in exchange for a larger percentage of the sales of their art. (Number of days worked depends on the size of space licenced). 2. Associates rent a space in the Gallery, knowing their works will be displayed on an ongoing exhibition so as to encourage increased sales. Rent starts as low as $25 (plus tax) per month for a 2ft x 5ft space.
3. Artists with general retail sales experience who enjoy meeting new people, who may have volunteered in other Galleries and especially those with a team player attitude are welcome to apply to the Associates position.
Consignees: This option is designed for those artists who:
1. Are not able to volunteer in the gallery. (E.g. live off island, work full time or have other commitments)
2. Consignees may have shorter periods of time in which their art is showcased in the gallery.
3. Commission artists receive 60% of their art sales. 4. This option is great for artists who are not comfortable in a retail position or not available to volunteer in the gallery.
Members: these are the owners of the Cooperative. Membership is limited to those who have an interest in becoming a shareholder, take an active role in the governance and administration of the Association, and to reap the benefits of lower commission. Members are eligible to receive year end profits, as well as retain a larger percentage of their art sales.
