Thanks so much for your interest in selling at From Here!
From Here exists as a practical means of furthering Terrain’s mission of working to ensure artists thrive in our region and to spark the creative economy.
When looking for new items to carry we consider the following:
- Quality of work.
- Are there similar items already in the shop?
- Collaboration vs. competition. Is the work already available at other local stores?
- Production. Is the artist/maker able to keep up with items turning over quickly?
- Community-building. Is the artist/maker able to be an active participant in the shop?
The last point is an important distinction between our shop and other retail locations. We’re not merely interested in selling locally made goods. We want to develop an ecosystem of creativity, camaraderie and a place where businesses grow. As a result, we create opportunities in which artists can dive in and participate in the happenings of the shop.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, please click submit.
From now until March 22nd (submissions deadline) Terrain is accepting exhibit ideas for our permanent gallery space during the 2020 - 2021 exhibition schedule.
The Terrain Gallery is approximately 1,500 square feet and is located in the Historic Washington Cracker Building, a building which has been restored and is now a unique ecosystem that includes Inland Pacific Kitchen, Hogwash Whiskey Den, Overbluff Winery, Anvil Coffee Roasters, a performing arts space, yoga studio and office spaces. Pictures of the gallery as well as gallery renderings can be found here.
We are looking for an array of proposals including two dimensional, sculptural, installation, video, audio (artist must supply equipment), interactive, or experimental artworks.
There will be special consideration for proposals that have built in programming and/or are easily programmable. I.e. community events that can be tied into an exhibit theme, be it a reading, a workshop, or any other kind of community-centered gathering.
Individual artists, artists teams, or proposals for curated themes are all eligible. We put a special emphasis on local artists (i.e. the Inland Northwest region), but are accepting and will consider proposals from beyond our immediate area.
Selected applicants will work with Terrain's Exhibit Preparator to successfully install the show. Each show has a small installation budget to cover things like artist labels and title walls.
Most exhibitions will be one-month in duration following our First Friday schedule, however we may extend exhibitions depending on where they land in the exhibit cycle. Depending on what's submitted, we may also pair two different proposals together.
If work is accepted, artist is responsible for providing all necessary display and viewing equipment, including, but not limited to: tv/display monitor, projector(s), media player, USB drive, mounting hardware, remote controls, batteries.
For out of town artists:
Artists are responsible for round trip shipping and insurance (during shipping) of artworks. All shipments must include a prepaid return shipping label or shipping charge account number and be shipped in a container appropriate for reuse in return shipping.
