Your Show

You are responsible to provide any special instructions on your artwork. ex. digital media, mechanical parts, interactive prices, if a piece needs to be watched, etc.



       Be sure when inserting the lights back into the track that the two pin side of the light fixture is being turned into the two copper strip side of the

       track.  Forcing lights into the track can bend the pins and stretch the track so that there is no connection.  If it does not turn easily in one direction try         from another (clockwise or counterclockwise).

     Be respectful of our neighbors businesses and their parking needs on either side of Pirates main front door. Be respectful of the CrossFit business to the

     north and DO NOT park in their gravel lot. It is suggested that for larger events, such as the DOD, and open shows, to place signs out that say ‘DO

     NOT PARK ACROSS THE STREET’.  There are no set rules.  Pirates can park in front of our Pirate garage door.


     Pirate does not have a trash service.  Do not dump in private dumpsters on the premises that other business owners are paying for.  We LOVE our

     neighbors. Please take any trash and recyclables home for disposal. Keep trash bags stocked.


     There are buckets with sand at the front and back for these.  A cat litter scoop is in the the storage room for cleaning these out.


     Please keep this area clean. Wash any dirty bowls and dishes and put away. This is especially important after your show.


     Please keep the bathroom clean while your show is running.  Make sure there is toilet paper, soft soap and paper towels ready for guests.  If you

     purchase any products please keep receipts and submit to Lisa for reimbursement.


     This area is for pedestals, ladders, tables, paint, tools and chairs, and a place for members during their show to store stuff.  This is NOT a storage

     area for your artwork for after your show.


     Normal wear and tear is expected but we want to keep the walls as clean and well maintained as possible. Be sure to spackle and paint all holes

     after a show. Use a primer first to cover up tougher stains and scuffs, and then the flat white wall paint in the storage room.

     Once spackle is dry sand with 150/220 sand paper to smooth and get rid of access. Use a small roller for larger areas and a brush for small.

     If have any questions about how to patch and clean up a wall contact Charles or Eric.


     Bring in both open signs. Turn off all lights. Lock front and back doors and check garage roller door is locked. The Pirate neon sign is on 24-7.


     The Thermostat is programable and is set to come on an hour before our gallery hours.
