The folks at Chaco Canyon Café, the organic vegetarian/vegan restaurant at Link (WSB sponsor) in The Triangle, are inviting artists to come show their stuff. Here’s the invitation we were asked to share:

Call to West Seattle Artists! Chaco Canyon Café is looking for your art to display on our walls!

Criteria:
1. West Seattle and White Center artists preferred.
2. Paintings preferred and we welcome pieces with a bright and vibrant color palette.
3. Artists must be willing to keep their work here for a minimum of 6 months and to host at least one Art Walk event during that period.
4. Have approx. 12 large pieces, or an equivalent number of small or medium pieces available for display.
5. Have all work neatly and appropriately framed with the ability to hang from a single hook provided.
6. Be ready and able to put up art during the week of March 19th.

For those interested, please e-mail photographs of your works to anise@chacocanyoncafe.com. We hope to come to a decision by the beginning of March.

  3. Well-written, certainly. And I’m not in favor of anyone working for free. (There are writers and photographers who allow themselves to go uncompensated in our business, happily providing their labors for free to corporations from AOL to Hearst, while little guys like us insist on paying.) In this case, however, the artist is getting free display space to be seen by people who might buy their work, not providing the work for free. If the West Seattle Art Walk or any other program in which artists show their stuff in businesses and hang out for three hours one month to meet potential buyers is a raw deal for artists, they could shut it down tomorrow by refusing to participate. How else do you get exposure, if not by putting up your work somewhere it’ll be seen?

  4. Just having some fun, TR. It’s much more relevent to local musicians who are often sought to fill a restaurant with music in exchange for being “allowed” to sell CDs instead of being paid what they’re worth.

  5. Would totally agree with you there.

  6. Love it Bob! I’m saving it for future reference the next time one of my friends or family asks me for several more hours of free tech &/or social media advice.
    .
    I believe having skill or expertise is worth something. Too bad many other folks out there don’t.
