Gallery & WORkSHOP SPACE Rental

The Creativity Caravan is an alternative art space providing a venue for exhibits and events in a less-traditional setting within a busy retail community in the heart of Montclair center. Our 700-square-foot workshop/gallery area is available for rental by artists who are looking for a space to share their work - whether teaching a workshop, showing personal work, or collaborating with a group of artists. We would also love to host poetry or book readings and corporate groups for creative team-building exercises. 

The Creativity Caravan will also provide opportunities for several group shows per year - open public calls for artists, all submission forms, and information will be added to our site several months prior. If you are an artist or instructor who is interested in displaying your work in our gallery or in teaching a workshop, please contact us directly for details about space rental. We are especially interested in working with emerging artists, but all artists and mediums will be considered.

Please note: In January 2018, we announced we will be exhibiting the work of female and female-identifying artists only. We have a year-round open submission policy for our monthly exhibitions and we are seeking artwork from emerging and established artists in any medium: painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, digital art and mixed media. You may submit your artwork as a “general submission” or to a specific exhibit that we list twice a year. All artwork submitted is reviewed by our curatorial panel and kept on file to be considered for each upcoming exhibition. (For 2018, all exhibition rental fees have been waived. A 40% commission on all sales still applicable.)
