Project Three Gallery’s vision is to bring experimental, inspiring fine art to the Kenmore Blvd. Our goal is to educate the public on the value of having local art and to bring a fresh, vibrant life to the street. We also want to support new and emerging artists with opportunities to experiment and test new ideas in a real work setting, like the gallery. Project Three Gallery also wants to form a atmosphere of creativity and community among artists.

For the Kenmore neighborhood to experience watching artists create installations from beginning to end
For the Kenmore neighborhood to have the chance to talk and meet with the artists during open house/gallery hours

GALLERY/OPEN HOUSE HOURS
• Due to Project Three Gallery being a start up neighborhood business, we ask our artists to volunteer to sit for one shift of gallery hours. Gallery hours are Wednesday 11-4pm, Thursday 5-8pm and Saturday and/or Sunday 11-4pm. These days and times can be flexible depending on when artists are available. There is free wifi available during this shift.
• Through the month of July, we ask for artists/teams to be available during our Kenmore events. Dates and times will be announced end of May. If artists would like to sell work while open hours are happening, the gallery will not take any commission on sales.
Project Three Gallery will NOT revive any commission on any work sold during the program running. Artists are responsible for packaging and shipping sold artwork. Project Three Gallery will not hold, ship, store, or package any artwork.
