Prince Gallery is an alternative exhibition space available for rent in downtown Petaluma, California. We exist only to allow local and emerging artists an opportunity for self-curated solo shows, thematic group shows, installations, performance art, film screenings, etc. in a “blank canvas” gallery.
Prince Gallery is yours to springboard a career, turn a passion into profit, or expand possibilities. Our artists often exhibit work that needs to be seen, but for one reason or another can’t find a home at other local galleries, boutiques, coffee shops, etc. We allow you to exhibit the work you want, how you want in a gallery dedicated to you. We do not censor. Prince Gallery is perfect for talented young artists that have great work, but lack the sales history to be represented by traditional galleries.
We charge 0% commission. Every penny of every piece sold goes directly to the artist. We simply charge “rent” equal to our cost of operation. Therefore, we make no profit from our artists.
Then why do we do this? Because we’re artists, too. Because we know how important it is for local and emerging artists to have a proper space to exhibit and how hard it is to find. Because we know that advancing the careers of other artists will, in turn, advance ours.
We don’t intend to be simply four white walls. We are here to support you and help you promote your work. The only catch to this model is that artists have to take advantage of it. Today is the day to start planning for your show.
