Showcasing traditional and contemporary Indigenous Art
Indigenous in Music and Arts (IIMA) is seeking Indigenous artists to exhibit in our on-line Virtual Gallery. Three artists will be selected to have a solo exhibition of 10-15 pieces for a 10-week period to both show and sell their artwork.
Our Virtual Gallery is the first venture for us as we move forward to open our actual “Two Buffalo Studios’” in Sarasota. A space to be visited by Florida locals and visitors.
Our Two Buffalo virtual gallery will be visited by our on-line visitors. The gallery showcases living Indigenous artist’s current work, including both traditional and contemporary mediums and styles, ideally drawing connections between our cultures’ history and our continuous evolution into the future.
This Two Buffalo Virtual Gallery is designed not only to create opportunities for Indigenous artists to showcase their unique work, but to provide a market in support of the artist. The IIMA will hold a 33% commission of all pieces sold during the show (this includes if any and all shipping costs). This commission will be used by the IIMA fund and perpetuate the program for future artists. The remaining 67% will be distributed to the artist as items are sold. If desired, the artist may also work with us to produce print-on-demand merchandise to sell online in conjunction with their show. Merchandising agreements will be made between IIMA and the Artist case by case.
