Since July 2015, Creative Ventures Gallery has existed to provide working space and visibility for professional local artists. Our goal is to combine studio, gallery and classroom space all under one roof. Oil, alcohol ink, watercolor, acrylic, and pastel are among the mediums represented. The gallery serves the Greater Nashua area and is open to the public, providing a relaxing environment that allows the visiting public to observe and to interact with the resident working artists.
By September 2017, we will be relocating in our new space in Milford, just two miles from our current location where we will enjoy larger studio spaces and larger classrooms with handicapped accessibility.
Studio space will be allocated based on room size and space requirements of each artist. Rental costs are determined accordingly, i.e., the larger the space, the higher the rent. Artist may use the wall space in his/her studio space to hang artwork. Studio artists are expected to participate in special events whenever possible.
To provide an adequate level of variety in our presentation, artwork by other artists may be accepted on consignment to cover some of the common areas in the building subject to a 25% charge on sales. The official gallery is confined to a small room where we will have rotating exhibits of CVG artists and consigned artists. The gallery will change out every two months, and we expect artists to post to the Creative Ventures Facebook page when the changeout occurs and share to their personal page as well as their personal websites.
For additional information, please visit or contact us through the website or by phone.
These are some of the guidelines that allow us to create the environment we need to enhance everyone’s creativity:
- The 14’ x 15’ classroom space is available to our artists for holding classes, workshops or open drawing/critique sessions. It is also available to the artists when not in use for those nasty dirty projects that need extra space or to be just that large flat surface we all need from time to time.
- We have started to accept artwork on consignment. We will be charging a 25% commission on sales from these wall spaces. Contact us to find out what spaces are available. We ask that this is taken seriously and be changed out every two months. There is no sitting, but we do expect that these artists post something on the Creative Ventures FaceBook page when they change out and share to your personal page so it gets out there and put on your website.
