Founded in 1983, the Second Street Gallery is conveniently located in the heart of old town Bandon, Oregon with easy access to State Highway 101 and walking distance to the harbor.
Initially Second Street Gallery was a co-op, organized by a group of local artists who wanted a venue in which to sell their art. It was housed in the smaller, adjacent building west of the present structure. After a year, the gallery was purchased by the Harrisons in 1984 and moved to the Dahl building. The next move was across the street to the Continuum Building in 1988. In 1995 it was purchased by Debbie Johnson and Grover Hatcher and was relocated to its present site. In 2005 the gallery was purchased by Richard Rahmlow and Pat Nash and then purchased by Peter Bauer and Candace Kreitlow in late 2012.
Today the gallery represents the work from over 100 artists and companies primarily in the Pacific Northwest, working in a wide range of mediums. Seventy-five percent of these artists reside in the state of Oregon, while the rest call Washington, California or Canada their home. Please take the time to peruse the Second Street and be treated to a panoply of original art and gifts.
Second Street Gallery welcomes new artwork submissions throughout the year, with our principal interest being artists from the West Coast of the United States. While the gallery would love to exhibit many artists as it learns of their work, it must nevertheless honor existing artist contracts. Constraints of space limit our ability to take on as many new artists as we would like. All items are sold on a consignment basis. If you are an artist who is interested in consigning, you may present your work in the following ways:
Option A: By Appointment and in Person
If you come in person, after you have made an appointment, you are welcome to bring a selection of your art with you. Please bring a brief biography and your suggested retail price for each work. Second Street Gallery will not spontaneously view portfolios or artwork during gallery hours. Thank you for considering Second Street Gallery for representation; we wish you success in finding a gallery that suites your needs.
Option B: Email
Attach 6 to 12 images in JPEG or PDF format of your artwork with your suggested retail pricing.
Include your resume and, if you have a webpage, please include your URL.
Attach an artist statement or brief cover letter.
Please include "Artist Submission" in the subject line of your e-mail.
