Why not join the EVAN Gallery?

EVAN has it’s own gallery in Penrith town centre with three large gallery spaces and artists’ studios. This is a fantastic opportunity for EVAN members to showcase their work at a very favourable rate and low commission on sales.

If you would like to display your work in the EVAN Gallery please note that Gallery members pay £20 per month and are committed to help with staffing duties. If you are interested in joining the Gallery please email Sarah Reid (Gallery Manager) in the first instance, who will add you to the waiting list and explain what’s expected from Gallery members. E-mail: sarah@edenvalleyartisticnetwork.co.uk. Please make sure that you have read and understand the Gallery terms and conditions before applying: https://edenvalleyartisticnetwork.co.uk/gallery-terms-and-conditions/

All members of EVAN are given the opportunity to display their work in the Gallery twice a year in the Spring and Autumn Open exhibitions. There is a hanging fee of £15 payable per exhibition for non Gallery members and 15% commission is payable on all sales. Entries are limited and are offered on first come first served basis.
