A CALL FOR NEW ORLEANS ARTISTS AND CRAFTSPERSONS
EXHIBIT YOUR WORK IN A NEW UPTOWN STORE SPACE!
IN Exchange, a 501(c)(3) retail store/art gallery, is currently searching for talented and expressive New Orleanian artists and craftpersons to vend their handmade wares in a new gallery space. IN Exchange will open in the newly-renovated Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life on the campus of Tulane University, providing artists with the unique opportunity of expanding their sales and visibility to uptown buyers. The store will feature biographies on all artists and craftpersons exhibited in the store. Items the store will sell include wall art, handbags, jewelry, quilts/blankets, pillows, t-shirts, and pottery that is microwave safe, dishwasher safe, and lead-free. The majority of IN Exchange buyers will be Tulane University administrators, faculty, staff and students.
IN Exchange is calling on all New Orleanian artists and craftspersons generating and income at or below 70% of the median income in the State of Louisiana and living in New Orleans for at least five years to contact the project. Some exceptions may be made on a case by case basis for individuals relocated outside of New Orleans and falling slightly above 70% of the median income.
Please contact the founder of IN Exchange, Erica Trani, by email (preferable) at email@example.com or by phone at 860-966-6363.
