PARADICE PALASE - Show #1 - Paradise Express

$7,582

PARADICE PALASE is an experiment in the community-supported gallery model. We curate bi-monthly exhibitions with affiliated programs including screenings, workshops, artist talks, performances and live music. Reaching into local communities as well as the community at large, we aim to give a platform for young, emerging, or underrepresented artists, broaden accessibility of the gallery experience through alternative means, and very importantly, get artists paid for their work. 

For more information about our gallery model and our mission, please visit our website: www.paradicepalase.com

Exhibiting artists are asked to produce or provide affordable artworks or related products used as pledge items in each fundraiser. The budget includes production and maintenance costs, administrative costs, and artist stipends. These costs are estimated according to the scale of each presentation.

Our first show, Paradise Express, includes work by artists Annique Delphine (Photography), Joani Tremblay (Painting), Margaret Murphy (Photography), Netta Laufer (Photography & Video), Kat Ryals (Installation & Sculpture), and Camille Hoffman (Collage & Painting). 

The gallery space is accounted for with no cost to us, so we are already one major step towards the finish line. It’s now up to you, the community at large, to decide how invested you will become in these artists, the gallery model, and the vision of PARADICE PALASE!

WHY HELP US?

Too often are artists under-appreciated for their talents and services. PARADICE PALASE is: an “artist-first” model dedicated to getting artists paid for their efforts, a curated series of topics for your consideration, an experiment in the strength of community-driven arts. We seek alternative ways to bring viewership and longevity to the arts and are experimenting with one model we think could be a another outlet for artist/patron relationships. We ask for your pledge because we believe in the support for the arts and want to bring that to a non-white-cube setting.

PLEDGING

One way of gaining visibility for exhibiting artists is through our incentive program. Each pledge earns you an original artwork, print, or accessory dependent on the range of donation. We ask artists to contribute small works, prints, merchandise like pins, patches and clothing, or fun workshops, and artist experiences. Higher contributions, especially from brands or businesses, may earn exposure on the PARADICE PALASE social media and marketing for the show.

Risks and challenges

1. We are a small team organizing complete gallery experiences for the public. We super appreciate any and all contributions and are excited about the pledge items available for you all! Organizing and shipping all those lovely items to you is a task, and we will work hard to get them to you in a timely manner - promise - but if there's more of you helping us then we planned, it may take a bit longer than expected to reward you for your donation.

2. PARADICE PALASE swears by their artists and their communities, but we recognize the challenges facing getting community support for such a new and novel idea. We hope you love our experiment and share this campaign with anyone you think will love it too - artists, friends, collectors, business owners, whoever!

3. We run the risk of not meeting our initial goal, and that's a gamble we're willing to take. Thanks in advance to everyone who does donate! Like the precarious lives of creatives and artists, sometimes these things don't work out on the first try. We plan to still give viewership to all our artists through an online exhibition, where you can still enjoy the show and purchase any artwork you desire :)
