ARTSPACE 506 in North Myrtle Beach, SC, Goes Through Changes

June 12, 2017

Hello all. Our Winter hiatus has lasted longer than anticipated. We are only now coming out of dormancy and want to make everyone aware of some new developments.

We have found that our upstairs gallery space is not in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Those who frequent our shows are familiar with the steep staircase one must climb to reach the second floor galleries. We agree completely with the premise of the ADA and fully support providing access to those with disabilities. We are unable at this time, however, to install an elevator, or stair lift to access the second floor. We must, therefore and unfortunately, close the second floor to the public at large. Of course this greatly diminishes the available space for exhibits going forward and our exhibition schedule will be less ambitious.

We opened in 2014 and have sponsored nine solo exhibitions and three annual Small Works shows featuring and awarding local artists. The gallery began as an idea to bring exceptional art to the Grand Strand, nurture and promote artists, create a venue for all local artists to exhibit once a year, and curate fantastic shows that the community would enjoy. Opening the gallery allowed the opportunity to mount quality exhibitions featuring artists whose work was intriguing, thoughtful and well executed and deserving of a venue for being seen. Many artists who have exhibited at Artspace 506 have achieved considerable critical and institutional recognition. The people in our local communities have been positively impacted by the presence of the gallery.

Artspace 506 and other galleries, like all small businesses, contend with economic realities every day and must make difficult decisions to continue to operate in the current economic climate. The art market and art marketing is changing. With the rise of so many digital venues artists are increasingly self-marketing. Collectors peruse art on the web and are increasingly drawn to the large art fairs. Viewers enjoy the shows but are unable to afford prices set by top artists. Even in established art markets like New York or Los Angeles small galleries are facing these new realities. These realities have formed our decision to change how we will operate going forward.

The gallery is not closing, only changing operating procedures. Remaining committed to the arts, the focus going forward will be on the production of works – an active studio model. Except for special shows, events or classes the gallery will be open by appointment only.

We will keep you posted for special events.
