Phix & The Arts
Coffee Phix Cafe's Local Artists Showcase
At the Coffee Phix Cafe we are proud to support local artists by exhibiting their work on a rotating basis. We feature a new artist each month and all the art is available for purchase if so desired by the artist. Exhibits will remain in place at the cafe for approximately 27 days. We believe this to be an exciting model of art support and distribution. It is in keeping with our continuing efforts to give local artists, students and others an opportunity to showcase their artwork, and in this case in one of South Euclid's most community minded businesses. For the cafe, it allows us to provide an already welcoming environment, an ambiance and culture that is pleasing to the eye of our customers. We will also host a small informal reception for your art exhibit open. Participating artists must have enough work artworks to fill the space (Refer to gallery photos below). All art must be presentation ready. Artists interested in participating in our Local Artists Showcase can contact us at email@example.com. Please include: Electronic images of at least four pieces from your exhibit, a five to ten line bio and a personal photograph. These items will be used to promote your event.
