ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a non-profit, woman-run
cooperative gallery dedicated to providing alternative space exhibition
opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery
system. Since 1973 ARC has given exposure and support to artists,
providing an atmosphere for the continued development of artistic
potential and experimentation.
ARC is run entirely by its women artist members; as a non-profit
exhibition space. ARC receives some support from outside funding sources
but not enough to cover our operating expenses. Thus, to provide the
space and services we offer to exhibiting artists, we defray our
expenses by charging exhibition fees. Each of the rental spaces in the
gallery actually costs twice as much as we charge the artists.
