Artists are responsible for their own insurance for art works.  The First Congregational Church’s ArtReach Gallery insurance policy has a $1000 deductible. They have not had a problem with theft as they have volunteers there when the gallery is open.

This gallery is a large pleasant room with lots of wall space. They can accommodate about 50 pieces, depending on the size.

Donations needed:

  • Refreshments for reception
  • Donations of cash are needed. We are running low on funds as this is at the very beginning of the year and OWCA doesn’t have the $200 need to design and print postcards for this show.  Suggested is $5 and up. Donation will be needed by January 15th 2014. If mailing in your donation please write in the memo what it is for. You can also donate here on our website using WePay button located in the footer of this page to the left. Please then email us letting us know that it was intended for postcards. If we don’t receive enough money for the postcards we many hold the money aside for the next show.

Material (such as food with submission of receipt) and cash donations may be tax deductible, and upon request we will send you documentation.

Questions: The show will be coordinated by Jennifer Frykman of the OWCA Exhibition Committee. Jennifer will notify you of how many pieces you can have in the show as soon as she knows how many artists are going to be in it.
