Kanon Collective is currently seeking new members to join our gallery and be part of our team. Kanon has been a part of Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe for more than 12 years and we look forward to more years in one of Colorado’s designated creative districts.
As a member of our collective, you would have one solo show each year. The solo show is in the front section of the gallery and lasts for a month, including an opening reception on First Friday and an Artist’s Reception on Third Friday — both very well attended events in the district. We often have thousands of people pass visit the gallery on First Fridays. Members are also welcome to set up additional receptions throughout the month if they choose. The solo show can be the member’s work or you can curate a show of other artists. We are very open to different ideas for shows as long as they look professional. Members also have use of our back garden reception area for personal events throughout the year. In addition to the solo show, each artists will have ample space to show work year round, including smaller items in our back room. Members can sell jewelry, clothing, and other gift items as long as they are original work. This gives members a chance to make money all year instead of just during their show.
Membership dues are $175 per month and each artist helps with gallery sitting two days per month. We are open Thursday through Sunday from 12-5. The only commission we take on sales is 5% of credit card sales to cover costs. We do ask for a one-year commitment from all new members. Kanon is an artist-run gallery we are looking for members who want to be a part of that. Each member has a job at the gallery and we all help with large projects. Collectives like our only work when everyone contributes and has a stake in the gallery.
