The Artists

 

What being a chicken or a rooster can do for you...


Just Us Chickens is a co-op that has been in Kittery for eleven years. Over those years, friends have been made, money has been made, and best of all, this gallery has provided an attractive storefront, open six days a week, staffed by a member, run by members and kept aesthetically pleasing to the public by a talented merchandiser.

At JUC we have two levels of membership and two levels of commissions from sales. A full member works the desk 3-4 half day shifts per month. Commission rate is 75% and a full member is expected to attend monthly organization meetings and take on a job in the management. (housekeeping, publicity, tech services, event coordinator, all the usual to help run an organization. ) A part-time member does not work, receives a 60% commission, is encouraged to attend an annual meeting and attend occasional show openings for guest artists. ALL members pay $20 a month dues that helps defray the costs of rent, utilities, supplies, advertising, fixtures, accountants and social media.

Being part of this team exposes everyone to new ideas and connections that extends the knowledge and opportunities for individual artists in the art/craft world. New work is subject to a jury that insures quality and individualism in product diversity. For many of us, it has been shows and fairs, using the co-op as a backup for income. Others prefer the day to day of having a gallery for very little financial input and do a few shows where they get customer feedback. It works both ways. If you are looking to connect with fellow artists and be part of the team, come in and speak with our members. We are always looking for new talent.

JUC is an LLC, files a tax return every year, and provides artists with all the paperwork needed for the Internal Revenue Service if commissions exceed $600.
