Gallery on Main Street for 2014
This is a wonderful project where the juried art of 24 artists is depicted on large vinyl banners on the main streets of Cable throughout the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The original art is donated by the artists and is displayed all summer long at local businesses. And, the local businesses of Cable and Hayward along with the Chamber of Commerce of Cable sponsor this event by providing funds that help to produce the banners and publicize the event. There is an opening and closing reception, 7,500 brochures are printed and placed throughout the region, and there is much publicity about the artists, the art and the community. At the end of the summer the original art and the banners are offered at auction….a spirited afternoon at a local venue. This income pays for the printing of banners and publicity.
We invite artists to consider their entry for the summer of 2014. Remember that the format needs to be in the 12″ by 24″ perspective for the transition to the 30″ x 60″ vinyl banner. The use of vibrant and bold color is important to display well. If you are creating a 3D item a photo may depict it well on the banner but remember to consider how the original art will display throughout the summer. And one more note for artists, do not frame your piece…all 2D art will be matted and sleeved by the professionals at Art Beat.
