Local Troy business woman Patty Rose is ready to bring art to the Square in Troy. The 1908 building was originally the First National Bank of Troy, and most recently was a cabinet shop. In her first attempt as a fine art gallery owner she is offering local artists booth rental space for With up to 32 spaces/booths artists can rent for as little as $25/month for a 3 ft x 9ft space u up to 150 square feet for $300 month. The vignettes from the building previous tennat help divide the space into rooms. Rent will cover all utilities and expenses, but artists will be asked to volunteer up to 4 hours per month. Artists will be asked to make a 6 month commitment and there will be no commission to pay. Rose says “some of the larger spaces have large picture windows and great light and this building just screams to be a gallery.”
There will be a party on April 5th from 6-8pm at the site to
view the gallery and by April 10th Rose will know whether their are enough tenants to make The Art Vault Gallery venture a go. While not an artist herself, Rose says she keeps hearing about the need for a space from artists and she’s willing to make this happen.
If the success of her Allstate insurance business, her other commercial properties and the Leaf & Vine she and her husband own in Troy are any indication, I’d say if it can be done, Patty will make it happen.
Interested artists are welcome to contact Patty by email or at 524-6443.
