General information about Grammar Art Show
- Over 250 artists and 800 paintings
- Art generally ranges from $40 – $15,000

- Generally sell
- 250 – 360 pieces of art

- Wide range of genres
- Sell-out crowd of 600 every year to Opening Night

25% commission is kept by TGS Art Show. The Artist sets the price of art, and we keep 25% of that.
First year exhibiting, an artist is generally offered an approx. space of 1m * 1m, within which one may exhibit one large painting or several small paintings. If successful, the space allocation may be increased for the next year. We find getting too many pieces from an artist in their first year at our Art Show, just does not seem to work for some reason.
Paintings need to be completed & ready to hang on the purchasers wall.
We do not judge art work, we simply aim to have a very diverse range of art exhibited so as to provide something of interest for the wide taste of the people that attend and would like to buy some art.
Therefore, when we bring in new artists, it is generally to increase the diversity of art offered and keep up with trends being sought after for decorating homes and workplaces.
We aim to promote the Art Show widely:-
- DL flyers 20,000 distributed
- E-flyers :- 15,000
- Facebook & Instagram – grammarARTshow
- Highlife (Dist 5000)
- Style magazine
- Local Newspapers, TV and Radio
