The gallery is located in the Marketplace district, on a narrow cobblestone side street. It is a small storefront, sandwiched between a bookstore and a flower shop. It is a one-room affair with an open plan that heads straight back with art featured on both walls to either side.
The gallery rotates artists approximately every three to six months depending on how quickly the art is being sold. Each new exhibition has a special opening event---an evening with cocktails and light hors d'oeuvres---with different levels of publicity to keep from oversaturating and exhausting the market interest. Glossy catalogs are published for every new exhibit including descriptions of each piece and a local art historian's analysis of the works.
Art pieces are valued by size and demand for the artist's work, and prices are provided only upon inquiry. It is safe to assume, however, that nothing at the gallery is priced for less than five figures. Sold works are marked as such, but remain at the gallery as part of their collection until the exhibition is complete, at which point the pieces are delivered to the buyers.
The gallery is open daily from 11AM to 9PM. While Lucy is often at the gallery, she is available to show work by appointment only.
This is the official thread for all future stories and play involving the gallery. Anyone is welcome to post here at any time about visiting the gallery, purchasing art, or having any other interest in the gallery.
The thread will be updated now and again with descriptions of the art currently being shown, or about any vapored events occurring at the gallery. You are welcome to play off of those posts, whether it be coming to see the current exhibit or expressing interest in purchasing a piece.
If you want to interact with Lucy or the gallery beyond simply visiting, please feel free to PM me to discuss. In particular, if you are interested in having your character purchase a piece or having your character show their work at the gallery, please PM me!
