New Co-Op Gallery in Town

Well today I got juried into the new Co-op gallery in town, Green Chutes. Earlier this week my husband and I went by to check it out, we were impressed with the space- it has a hip big city "loft" feel to it. We also had a really good lunch at the cafe housed in the same building. I took home an application. After discussing it, I decided to go for it and spent the last two days updating my resume and biography and getting samples ready. Today I met with the owner who said I had been accepted. I spent the day filling out more forms, and picked out all the pieces I wanted to put in the gallery, priced them and made up an inventory list. Rent is $60 a month and I need to work one 8 hour shift a month. Next is getting my info. in for their website. I'm excited, hope this turns out to be a good adventure!
