What is Art at Work?
Connecting businesses with the arts community, Blue Line Arts operates the Art at Work program to create more exhibition opportunities for local artists. This program is designed to promote emerging artists in region, providing an enhanced aesthetic environment to our our local business members in the greater Placer County and Sacramento regions.
Art displays rotate quarterly at each location. We curate a selection of work and handle scheduling, installation, and processing of any sales, working with business owners to find art that looks great for each unique space. We use gallery tracks to hang at each location.
Some venues are able and willing to host artist receptions, when available.
Artwork is encouraged to be for sale at Art at Work locations. All art is hung on consignment with Blue Line Arts, which processes all sales and is responsible for sales tax. Artists receive a 75% commission on sales at Art at Work locations. Blue Line Arts receives a 25% commission on sales.
