New Work by Lauren Beacham – Amazingness!

You may remember Lauren Beacham from when we had her Polaroid necklaces and earrings in the 50/50/50 show last year. She has gone even further with the Polaroid concept and made these beautiful and interesting ceramic tile clocks, nightlights, and lamps.

These are some of my favorites:

Come in and take a look! Makes a great last-minute holiday gift!

seeking new makers/crafters/designers

The busy season is quickly approaching! We are currently accepting submissions for handmade items on consignment. I am especially looking for unique designs and products, so if this sounds like you, please email me at sarah@theeclipsegallery.com  ASAP as space is limited!

Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions:

What kinds of things are you looking for?

We are looking for cutting-edge, contemporary artwork, fine craft, and handmade design. We only accept handmade work of the highest craftsmanship & quality. We prefer work that does not duplicate or closely resemble anything that is currently in our gallery & store, or other galleries & stores. We also like to work with artists who have a cohesive body of work, in order to have an effective display. We accept submissions from both emerging & established artists. We LOVE art and design that is made from natural and/or recycled materials, or is in some other way earth-friendly, but it doesn’t have to be.

Some things we need right now include:

natural personal care products (100% handmade)
small, lower priced items like magnets, photo frames, etc.
accessories
handmade art/craft supplies (like hand carded/dyed wool yarn)
paper goods
furniture
artist books and zines
children’s items
candles
glass ware
household items
you get the idea :)

some things we do not need are: jewelry, ceramics, and bags/purses

How does this work?

You set the retail price for your work. We charge a fee of 40% of the retail price for each item sold. That means you get 60% of each item you sell through our store AND you don’t have to worry about any of the costs associated with running an art & design gallery. Your work may also be included on our website for online sale (not on Etsy). You only get charged if an item sells, there are no registration or hidden fees. You are responsible for delivering the artwork and/or handmade goods to our store. You are free to withdraw your goods from the store at anytime, but you are responsible for the pick-up or return shipping.

When will I get paid?

Every 30 days we send you a check directly. We also supply you with a report of exactly which items you have sold, and what you still have in our inventory. No phone calls to check on sales or inventory, please. We will be too busy selling your work!

Is there a contract to sign?

Yes. If we decide to consign your artwork and/or handmade goods, we will e-mail you a contract and an inventory list  that you can print out and include in your shipment of artwork/goods. That way, we are both protected and you can rest easy.

I want to consign my work with you. Now what do I do?

Send us your submission by e-mailing us 5-7 images of your work along with a brief description. Make sure to include your contact information, the price range of your work, a short bio, and your artist statement, if applicable. Also include any links where we can see more examples of your work.  Our e-mail address is sarah@theeclipsegallery.com

What should I expect after sending a submission?

We will take about a week or so to review your application. If we choose to accept your work, we will send you an e-mail back and give you further instructions. We can answer any other questions that you have at that time.

Do you take wholesale orders?

We may wholesale orders for certain items or if you have consigned with us before and have a proven track record.

Do you accept International consignments?

Not at this time, although this may change in the future.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to e-mail us at sarah@theeclipsegallery.com

Thank you for your interest!

Adam Koenig

Adam Koenig is a photographer who I’ve also had a printmaking class with. He creates great photos. This series has a mysterious quality about it, but it still makes sense in a sort of lonely way. At least that’s how I read it. It reminds me of being alone, maybe lost,  feeling abandoned. I love work that is open to interpretation, which this is.

Adam will be in our grand opening exhibition, Personality.

For more of Adam’s work, visit his blog.

On a down note, we might possibly be opening a little later than the projected date of June 2009. Brandon, my fiance who is doing most of the renovations for the gallery, got in a car accident last Saturday night and has injuries that will cause him to be out of commission for at least 3-4 months. We will see how it goes, but we are still going to try as hard as we can to have the gallery open by June. Any concerns please feel free to e-mail me. Thanks!
