Opportunities for Artists

Nov through the window square editThere are many benefits to being an Orange County Creatives Artist.  Our prime location on South Coast Hwy provides high visibility for you and your work, but that’s just the beginning!  At Orange County Creatives we are dedicated to connecting collectors with amazing artists.  We advertise in several publications, websites, and blogs throughout the area and we integrate our Artists’ names and images of their work into these ads.  We use social media extensively to increase public awareness of the Gallery and our Artists.  We currently average 3 posts per artist per week and we have over 3,800 followers across our 3 social media accounts.  We are currently accepting submissions to become a Partnering Artist as well as submissions for our monthly National Juried Art Exhibitions.

Partnering Artist

Interior Gallery AD editedOrange County Creatives Gallery is committed to connecting collectors with amazing artists. Our customers know they can always find a good balance of familiar artists and new talent. Our artists count on us to promote them and their work, host receptions, and handle business matters which frees up the artists to do what they do best: create!  We are currently looking for fresh talent to spend 2 consecutive months in the gallery.  We are located in Laguna Beach, CA and we are looking for artists who live within a reasonable driving distance so that you can participate in the life of the gallery.

What does it mean to be a member artist?  It means monthly Art Walk receptions, opening or closing receptions upon entering/leaving the gallery, and the opportunity to host private receptions for no additional fees.  Members have walls that are 4 ft wide and 7.5 ft tall (so usable space is 44″ wide and about 6′ tall.)

Member artists pay a monthly fee to help absorb the cost of advertising and overhead.  We use our artists’ work in our ads and will promote you as well as promoting the gallery.  Monthly fees also help cover the cost of receptions and First Thursday Art Walk expenses.  In addition to the small monthly fee, we charge 40% commission.

National Juried Art Exhibitions

To expand and develop our mission of connecting artists with opportunities to be seen we are hosting monthly juried showcases for artists.  Some showcases will center on a theme, others will embrace a certain medium.

With selection for an exhibition, featured artists’ works will be displayed in the Orange County Creatives gallery in Laguna Beach.
