Good Eats Café – And New Art Gallery
« Reply #1 on: April 24, 2018, 10:19:37 AM »
Good Eats Café, in Ottawa, offers a changing weekly menu of fresh sandwiches, salads and light hot meals, as well as sweet treats, breakfast sandwiches and baked goods. We cater to gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian preferences. We also offer coffee from local roasters, Equator, based in Almonte. And we cater. Menu posted weekly at www.goodeats.ca

Currently located in a sweet, old house on Albert St (the “UP’ house), Good Eats is moving this summer to a larger, exciting and brand-new kitchen and eating space where it will launch its art gallery program.

Good Eats will soon be located at 473 Albert St. (between Bay and Bronson). This large new location is attached to a busy, multi-story office building and close to new residential buildings and developments. There will be street access and access from the office building. Good Eats is normally only open daytime Monday to Friday, but sometimes guest chef events and wine tastings take place in the evening. Artists can also hold evening openings catered by Good Eats.   
The gallery program offers artists inexpensive exhibit space and the opportunity to take responsibility to curate, hang, market and sell their own art – commission free -- in a busy downtown location. There will be about 14 meters of well-lit wall space, with professional gallery hanging hardware.

We are calling artists and arts organizations to contact the Good Eats Gallery Manager to book exhibit space at this exciting new location. Good Eats owners, employees and customers love art! We will show our appreciation for our exhibiting artists by ensuring their information is easily accessible to customers. We will work with you to help ensure a good experience exhibiting at Good Eats.

Here are the Fine Print and Legalities!
The Fine Print:

The space will be available to individual artists, group shows or artists’ organizations, for 2D art only at this time. Exhibits will generally last one month, but longer exhibit times can be arranged for group shows. Cost to exhibit is $43.50 + HST = $50 per month to help defray equipment costs. No commission on sales.
 
To ensure smooth transitions between art exhibitors, there will be an additional $50 fee for artists who do not remove their exhibit at the agreed date and time!

Michelle Marcotte is the gallery director (marcotteconsulting@gmail.com; 716-299-0442)
Interested artists should send:
1. Name of artist or group,
2. Contact information,
3. A short description of work to be displayed, (such as media, subject matter, number of artists and names of artists if a group project)
4. Artist statement and/or bio or description of the artists’ group or organization

Professional gallery hanging equipment is used at Good Eats; information will be available about how to use it.

The Legalities:
