Endeavor Gallery Grand Opening September 2, 2017
From: Shryl Miles, Endeavor Gallery Exhibit Coordinator
Wow, it’s hard to believe but we are getting really close to re-opening Endeavor Gallery at our new location on San Pedro/4th St. We are really excited about the space and location which will provide us with much improved street access for parking and visibility, as well as a more open gallery space and gift shop. The inside space will lend itself to “Salon” style exhibits which means we can display more artwork at any given time than we could at the old location.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our artists and encourage you to participate in our exhibits. Initially we will not put a limit on each artist artwork until we have a better feel for the exhibit space. With all of our artists eligible to exhibit at the same time the number of pieces per artist exhibited will necessarily be determined by the amount and sizes of artwork that comes in. All artists artwork will be represented as equally as possible. Artist will be responsible for picking up any artwork we were not able to include in the exhibit before our September 2 opening.
We are also going to a new docent system. Artists will no longer be required to volunteer as docents in order to exhibit in the gallery or gift shop. Artists will be asked for a $20 a quarter exhibit donation which will go toward the expenses for keeping the gallery open. Docent volunteers will be working regular schedules of days which will give us a more consistent staff. Volunteer docents will have the quarterly exhibit donation waived.
Shryl Miles will be coordinating the exhibits and all gallery related inquiries should be directed to her. Please let her know if you are interested in exhibiting in the gallery. Her contact information is: Cell: (520) 508-2457, email: email@example.com

We will have a “soft” opening beginning August 19th to insure all processes are working well prior to our Grand Opening/Reception on Saturday, September 2, 2017.
Artwork and gift shop items will be collected at the new gallery on Saturday August 12th from 10am till 2pm. Any questions please contact Shryl for gallery questions and Charline for gift shop inquiries.
New location is at the SW corner of 4th St. and San Pedro in Benson, with the entrance on San Pedro St.
Gallery will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m and Saturdays from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.--
