We are proud to showcase the finest art produced in Milwaukee and beyond. Our past exhibitors include:
We are currently accepting proposals for solo exhibitions at our Bay View location.
There are three large walls (16', 12', and 19') with studs spaced every foot to hang your work. There are outlets available for video pieces. Numerous track lighting fixtures can light your pieces to your desire.
Each artist gets a two-month exhibition in our gallery. Toward the beginning of the exhibition Sabrosa hosts a special artist reception on a Monday evening called Sabrosa After Dark. The event features a meet-and-greet with the artist, a brief keynote address by the artist, live music, a wine tasting, and small plates and cocktails served by Sabrosa's staff.
Proposals for shows in our gallery will include the following requirements:
Sabrosa takes a 15% commission for works sold during exhibition in our gallery. Any pieces sold during the exhibition will remain in the gallery until the conclusion of the exhibition, unless suitable arrangements can be made for substitute pieces. All work is displayed at your risk. While the probability of damage occurring is extremely unlikely, we do recommend that your pieces are insured, listing Sabrosa Cafe & Gallery as a rider on your policy.
Send an email with all of the proposal requirements listed above to Frank Sanchez at info /at/ sabrosa dot cafe with the subject ARTIST PROPOSAL: (Your Name). If you prefer to mail your proposal, our address is 3216 S Howell Ave, Milwaukee WI 53207.
