MEMBERS ONLY – ONLINE EXHIBITION

K Space Contemporary is concerned for the well-being of our members and customers in this time of uncertainty. Therefore, in adherence to COVID-19 guidelines and crowd restrictions, we’ve changed the 2020 Members Only Exhibition to an ONLINE EXHIBITION.  

The online exhibition will be on our website with a direct link from the Home page. In addition, each accepted work of art will be posted on our social media pages with the artist’s name, title of work, price and a brief statement or bio from the artist. The exhibition will roll out for a 4-5 week period with 4-5 works of art posted each day. The posts will be shared on the K Space Contemporary Instagram page, K Space Contemporary business page, and K Space Contemporary group page.

IF COVID-19 restrictions are lifted by May 15th, we will ask you to bring your work into the gallery and we will install it for the June 5th ArtWalk.
