WHAT IS THE GALLERY & LOUNGE?
Our lodge decided in November 2021 to create a community oriented space (in what was the late and wonderful Odd Fellow Allan Rogers’ Picture framing shop). Located at 210 Spring St. Nevada City. The vision is fluid and a work in progress, BUT it is our goal to create a space that will be available for local artists and presenters and musicians to be able to display their work, to present their story, to play their music, and to give a presentation on just about anything! It will be a place in the heart of Nevada City that will give us an opportunity to shine, share and become a part of our community through the arts and fellowship. (lounge area included)
HOW WILL IT WORK?
We have big plans for all of us!
For the Gallery, we hope to offer this as an affordable place for local artists to display their work in a professional gallery format. For musicians and spoken word performances this will be an intimate venue to shine. There will be ongoing displays of art and we will have a stage area for presentations or music performances. Are you interested in video or audio production? Dreams of a production studio are being hatched! Looking for a place to record your podcast? A place that you can video with Green screen and professional equipment? We hope to offer the ability to live stream your event whatever it may be! Stay tuned!
The Lounge aspect will be incorporated into the gallery area. A place where one can sit and relax, have some tea or maybe a glass of wine for a small donation. Or perhaps to hold a gala for your art opening! These are ideas that we hope to have up and running within the upcoming year. As a member of Odd Fellows, when the gallery is not open, it will be a members only lounge. Yes there are member benefits!
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
While the Odd Fellows will try to offer this space as a very affordable place for the community, we envision the need for donations or a small percentage of any sales of artwork or presentations that are given there.
For a ticketed event it would have a small rental fee or a negotiated percentage of the door to go to Odd Fellows.
These charges are necessary to cover our utility and supply expenses. We may hold a few benefits to assist in the development of our plans for the space. Think: kitchen, bar, better handicapped facilities, espresso machine, refrigerator, air filters for COVID safety. Feel free to donate to the cause! Info@NevadaCityOddFellows.Com
We are looking forward to opening the doors of this place to our community and to watch it grow and evolve as a vital and dynamic place for all of us, right in the center of town!
