Application for Consignment

The Jury Committee reviews the applications and recommends select applicants to the Member Artists for ratification.

All artists are juried into the gallery as Consigning Artists.  Our requirements are stringent in order to maintain the best quality of art and craft in the area while working to support the creative community at large. This allows us to continually improve the selection of artwork shown at FRANK, help the professional growth of our artists, and increase the visibility of the region as a premier arts destination.

FRANK accepts consignment applications on an ongoing basis and applications are kept on file until a jury is called.  Applications are juried periodically based on the needs of the gallery. Invitational and juried shows are scheduled every six to eight weeks throughout the year and artists with applications on file are frequently invited to be guest artists and to apply to juried shows. We strive to show as many quality artists as possible to keep the gallery a vital reflection of the regional art scene.

The gallery receives a 50% commission on Consigning Artist sales.

What is FRANK’s Mission

The mission of the Franklin Street Arts Collective is to support the arts community of Chapel Hill and the region, strengthen community appreciation of the arts through educational outreach, and promote Chapel Hill and North Carolina as a major arts destination.

Franklin Street Art Collective is a not for profit 501(c)(3) gallery with a mission to promote the arts through a premier sales gallery and exhibition space. The gallery, known as FRANK, is located on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. With a focus on the best local and regional artists and a visionary approach, FRANK will strengthen community appreciation and understanding of the arts and promote the town of Chapel Hill and the region as a unique arts destination.

Who is FRANK

The gallery consists of approximately 25 Member Artists, a Board of Directors, a full time gallery manager and gallery volunteers all working together to display, sell and promote the work of all FRANK Artists (members and consignors).

Member Artists and Consigning Artists

Member Artists work in the gallery, have committee responsibilities and participate in management decisions.  Consigning Artists have no work responsibilities for the gallery and in turn pay a higher commission than the Member Artists.
