Are you a local author who is looking to build up your audience and tell readers about your books? Would you like to be a featured writer at a local gallery? If so, the Kingsburg Arts Center is looking for you! Every two months the Kingsburg Arts Center Gallery Membership display is changed. The work of a different artist and author are featured. We are interested in all types of fiction: children’s books, literary masterpieces, novels, graphic novels, or non-fiction and illustrated books.
Gallery’s Responsibility: A publicity release about the author is sent to the local newspaper(s) and posted on the internet (on Facebook in two places, Fresno Arts Net, Mind Hub and the Local Art Events Newsletter which will run a copy of your profile). The notice includes links to the writer’s website, E-Book, and to local bookstores carrying the writer’s work. The gallery collects a 20% commission on all sales.
Writer’s Responsibility: Sit the Gallery once each month. Turn in a copy of his/her profile at least one (1) month prior to the exhibit. (The profile should include how and why he/she got started writing, what type of books are written, where the books can be found, links to your web site, E-book, etc.). Bring in signed copies of your books and leave at the gallery for sale. If more than one title is brought in, one title will be selected by the writer as a Featured Book. The writer’s profile should include the title of the book featured, and a short blurb about the book (similar to the write-up usually found on the front flap of the dust jacket). A color poster for the sign in front of the gallery will be appreciated.
Although they do not sit the gallery, local artist/writers Pat Hunter and Doug Hansen have placed their books in the Arts Center on a consignment basis.
