AS A STANDARD, WE OFFER A COOLER, COCKIER AND MORE FLEXIBLE VENUE NOT COMMONLY SEEN IN OTHER GALLERIES AND THEIR ART SHOWS.

We accept and lift artists of any category using any medium. We let the art speak for itself and do not care if you already are a highly respected artist, or if you started painting last year. We just want to create an inspiring, creative oasis where visitors and artists come together. We want to make it easier for you to show your art, that is why we offer two different ways to pay for your exhibition.

RENT OR COMMISSION?

We always discuss with the artist if they want to pay a flat fee for their entire exhibition

OR  if they want to exhibit with a commission. 

If you choose a flat fee, you pay rent for the exhibition and keep all earnings of your sales (we take 0% commission). The rent is based on how many square meters of wall/floor space you rent (see below).

If you choose commission, we come up with a fitting split, and don't worry, the artist always walks
away with the bigger chunk.

Prices based on square meters

1 m2 wall space = 550 SEK, for two weeks.

Any exhibitions with 5 m2 or more get one opening night for free. 

Exhibitions with less than 5 m2 can choose to add an opening night for 1.500 SEK.

The minimum exhibition length is 2 weeks but it may be extended upon request.

Not hyped on doing the math to figure out how much space you need?

Here’s a tip:
Grab a ruler and map out a 1x1m square on the floor. 

Lay down all your art on the floor, in any fashion you want, maybe you want a lot of space between
each piece or maybe you want to create a cluster of art. It is up to you how you want to hang it. 

When you have all the art on the floor, measure out how many square
metres you need to make them all fit nicely within the space.
And there you have it! 

All artists with an exhibition on display are of course welcome to visit
and hang around in our gallery, but it is not a demand that you host your exhibition. We have personnel that will keep the gallery open and who
will forward any potential buyer directly to you so you can connect with the buyer and make the sale yourself.
