As an artist-run gallery, Sediment strives to support artists as much as we can throughout the exhibition process. We can assist with such aspects as installation and material support, accommodations, and return shipping. A limited amount of funding for exhibitions is available and considered on a case-by-case basis. Artists should be prepared to seek alternative funding for ambitious projects.
