What you get from Southern Paint

 
Since Southern Paint has been servicing Volusia County and the surrounding areas for over 50 years, the first thing you get from showing at Southern Paint is our constant stream of loyal customers from all walks of life. In addition to that we do the following:

 

  1. Prominent positioning on our website before and during the exhibition.
  2. You'll also have a permanent spot on our past exhibits section of our website.
  3. Promotion through our monthly statement mailers. This will reach 500-700 of our loyal customer base.
  4. In store signage, in all three of our stores, announcing the exhibit.
 
Any other promotion would be at the sole discretion of the SP Gallery.

What We Expect

The first and most important thing we expect is your support. As a family owned and operated, small business, local support plays an instrumental role in our survival. We offer a wide range of products and services including, paint, art supplies, picture framing, wallpaper, window treatments, concrete products, airbrush supplies, the list goes on. Your support is very much appreciated.

Furthermore, we would expect each artist to aggressively promote their exhibit as well as future exhibits held at the SP Gallery. We want people to see your art as much as you do and your own personal networking would help do just that. Print your own flyers to put in local business or place a small add in the paper, anything helps!
