Artist Statement:

My art journey has been a life-long pursuit.  I love scenes that are rich with story and creating characters who clearly belong in their own world. A few elements I try to include in each painting are flow, variety, and story. Movement in a piece brings life to the character, and variety reflects the uniqueness of different people. My goal is to create scenes and characters that touch the imagination and to invite the viewer to ponder further the story surrounding each moment. I find imagination can be contagious.

Ellen Injerd is a local artist who was born and raised in Portland, OR.  She loves sushi and studying Japanese.

FAQs for Artists

What is your gallery traffic like?

Being as the gallery is located in our float center, we get a lot of crossover foot traffic.  Aside from the gallery, we run 1200 floats a month, and are located in the heart of the SE on Hawthorne Blvd. The shop has large windows facing the street, so the art is visible 24/7 from the sidewalk.

What mediums do you accept in the gallery?

Anything that can be hung vertically by our wire/hook track system. Please do not include any fresh/wet oil pieces.

What is your commission rate?

We only charge a 5% commission!! This basically just covers credit processing charges.

What about the original piece?

Along with the process of being a gallery exhibitor, you will be given 4 float sessions in exchange for one original float inspired piece after completing your float sessions.  It will also be hung in the gallery for the duration of the month. After your month is over the original, float inspired piece will belong to Float On to be appreciated for ages to come.

What is your transport policy?

The gallery artist is completely responsible for all transport of gallery pieces.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes, there is a basic contract involved, but it is painless.
