Showcase your work at "THE NIGHT GALLERY" -- a monthly artist's reception every 2nd Saturday at RUIN HOLLYWOOD in Los Angeles! We feature some of L.A.'s greatest and up-and-coming artists of myriad mediums in an engaging, underground nightlife setting!
We are currently on Winter Hiatus for The Night Gallery at RUIN.
The following information is for art shows at RUIN HOLLYWOOD only. This information may change at any time. Only artists that have been confirmed are part of the show for the date(s) assigned. If you would like to be in one of the art shows at RUIN, fill out the form at the bottom of this page after reading thru all of the information. The deadline to confirm for your name and possibly your art for the official promotions is 2 weeks before the event. I will continue to accept artists and select vendors until the show is full. When the show is FULL, I will have a wait list, just in case there is a cancellation. Flakes need not apply.
Art shows at RUIN are now held on the SECOND Saturday of each month from 10pm-2:30am. Set-up time is 9pm.
The deadline to get your name on the flyer is 15 days before the event, but submissions will be accepted until the show is full.
Other show dates are:
To be announced
Please read all of the information. Do not blame me for not telling you something that is written on this site. For example, I had an artist tell me that I didn't tell them to bring lights, when that information is there along with a whole bunch of other information about what to expect. There is also a checklist available for items to bring with you.
Set up time is 9-9:45pm, no exceptions. It is important that you get there promptly and set up quickly. I can not stress this enough. If you don't get there before 9:30pm, I reserve the right to give your spot to someone else. Should it rain, the event will be either moved indoors or rescheduled. You are responsible for your work, you bring it, hang it, sell it, guard it, take it down, etc. A few artists in the past have had assistants come on their behalf. I don't recommend this since most buyers want to ask you questions about your work before they buy it. Also, since the show is on the patio, you may want to bring a jacket.
The club is open until 2:30am you may begin tearing down your display after 1:15am.
Type of art:
This show is themed! If you don't fit the theme in any way shape or form, this is not the show for you. This show is for macabre, industrial, steampunk, creepy, fetish, horror, and otherwise dark art. All mediums welcome, however I may not be able to fit your work in a show if I have too many artists working in similar styles in the same medium as your work
If you are a photographer or want to take photos of the event, you must get explicit permission from the club prior to the show from Xian.
Only one free guest listed person per artist. This needs to be your helper if you have one. I need that name no later than 3 days before the show, 3pm PST. If you are late getting me your guest's names, I can not guarantee their name will make it to the guest list. You and your guest need to be 21 and over. The guest list expires at midnight.
Limits on the shows you can do:
In order to keep a wide variety of artists for this particular show, you may now only be in ONE show per THREE months. So if you are in the January show, you can not show again until April. On for one show, off for two. Please do not request to be in EVERY show. If you do, I will send you an email asking you to reselect which dates you would like to do.
