First of all, thank you to everyone who has supported us so far by applying for a show or art opportunity! We are excited to be able to bring together the work of so many artists from around the world, and we hope we can continue to provide more opportunities for artists.
Specto Art Space is dedicated to creating a space which allows artists to exhibit their work in a professional, and hassle free manner. When we started, we had hoped to have our doors open by September, but now we are realizing we have to push that back a little. We thought we had found an ideal space, but it didn't work out. We found a second space, which was nice but not perfect for our needs. We weighed the idea of opening our doors just to meet our initial deadline, to just jump into a space as quickly as possible. Creating something like Specto is a continual lesson in compromise. However, there is one thing we won't compromise on, and that's the quality of the exhibition space. We want to create a space which is professional, polished, and focused on allowing the viewer to see your work in the best possible manner. And with that in mind we have to continue our search for the perfect place for Specto to call home. We do this in favor of finding a space which is better suited to our needs and free from limitations which would compromise the integrity of the exhibition of artwork.
Our new hope is to find the perfect space, renovate it to our needs, and open our doors to the public by Fall 2017, January 2018 at the latest. We're being a little generous with this window because we don't want to promise something we can't deliver. We hope to open our doors as soon as possible, but it depends on a lot of factors. In the mean time, we are excited to soon announce our first decisions in featured artists for our upcoming exhibition year.
Everyone who has already applied - Thank you! Our first shows are going to be phenomenal and we're very excited to get started showing this amazing work.
Thank you for your support. If you have any questions, please contact us!
