Hometown support for an artist’s career is crucial, but to ensure vibrant, long-term success they must have patronage from other parts of the globe. Thus the agenda is to show our artists’ work to known art collectors, curators, writers, and the general public. The more eyes on the work – the better!

Froelick Gallery invests heavily in promoting its artists work to curators around the country, but what if we had a “pop up” location in an entirely different city?
