Although many of the artists with work in the Project are based in the Santa Barbara area, living in the region is not a requirement for participation.

The Project lives in a series of flat file drawers at Jane Deering Gallery. Each participating artist has a portfolio in a drawer that contains six to twelve artworks (each in an archival clear plastic sleeve) along with a copy of the artist’s resume and  all necessary information about the artworks in the portfolio — the title, date, medium, size and price of each work. The drawers are open to the public during gallery hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 11 AM to 5 PM and Sunday 1-4pm.  It is not necessary to schedule an appointment to view work in the drawers. The Project is a great resource for artists, curators and collectors.

The concept for The Flat File Project began at Pierogi, an artist run gallery in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Pierogi was founded by artist Joe Amrhein in the mid-1990’s with the idea of making works on paper available to a larger audience.   In 1999, the Bernard Toale Gallery brought the concept to Boston.  Jane Deering (originally from the Boston area) has long admired this project and is pleased to bring the concept to Santa Barbara.
