Palisade to get new art gallery
A new gallery is coming to Palisade, focusing on the exhibition of work from art students and emerging regional artists.
The Art Cellar is scheduled to open Saturday, Nov. 30, in the basement of the Blue Pig Gallery, 119 W. Third St.
The space previously was used for storage until one of the building’s owners suggested they renovate the basement, so each of the three stories of the old Palisade location could be used for art.
The upper level is an art studio and workshop space. The building’s main level is the Blue Pig Gallery, showcasing work from some of the region’s top artists, and the basement will be for artists trying to make a name for themselves, director Sarah Winder said.
The gallery will show work from art students or those “who haven’t had success” selling or showing their work elsewhere.
Artists will receive 60 percent of from the sales of their work, while the gallery will keep 40 percent. There are no other requirements or fees.
The gallery’s grand opening reception will be from 5–8 p.m. Nov. 30. The regular business hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
Cost is free for the public.
