Gallery  La Crosse  Artists  Cooperative

Benefit  Art  Shows

One of our core values at the

Gallery La Crosse Artists Cooperative,

is to give back to our community

in celebration of life and living artfully.

It is our intention to hold at least two Benefit Art shows each year, to support local non-profit organizations, and other concerns within the great human family.

Our Benefit Art and Craft shows allow for regional Artists & Crafters to show their work in our established Gallery, getting exposure of their works to the public, while helping support important local charities.

How We Do Benefit Shows

For each show, we provide several ways to generate funds, allowing for benefactors large and small to participate and contribute as able.

We have made a few small changes in how the Benefit Art Shows are structured.

To encourage a wider range of prices on entered works, and to create greater opportunity for our Customers to purchase entered work in support of the Charity; we have reduced the Entry Fee, from a flat $10 per item, to 10% of the marked selling price.

The percentage split on the selling price has also been adjusted; to provide more to the Charity, while still keeping the total cost to the Artists down around 40% (on the lower end of the customary range of commissions charges).

* * * * *

Within this new structure:

Artists' Charity Donation to the show is 75 % of their Entry Fees.

Show Awards will still be paid from 25 % of the total amount of Entry Fees received.

Artists receive 65% of the selling price for works sold from the show.

Gallery La Crosse donates 35 % of the selling price on all show entries actually sold, and use of the Gallery for the Exhibition and for the Artists' Reception.

In addition to these, Gallery La Crosse will donate 10 %

of the value of all Gift Certificates sold during the show.

* * * * * * * *

Donations by the Public from the show are 100 % of the "Peoples' Choice" Award votes cast at $1.00 each, and all funds received into the charity's Donations Jar.

You are encouraged to VOTE EARLY and OFTEN

for the "Peoples' Choice" Award.

Gallery La Crossse and the various Local charities sincerely

Thank You for your support of our Benefit Art Shows.
