Small Works Submission Form

Show Dates

May 13th - December 23rd, 2017

Christian Hemme, Small Works Show 2016

Christian Hemme, Small Works Show 2016

This show hangs in our entrance gallery throughout the summer and fall and is the only show from which the buyer can take the work at the time of sale. Should work sell, we contact the artist for additional work. It is not mandatory that more work is sent, and this new work would not be juried, but it is a nice opportunity to to have a lot of visibility and sales.

 

Submission: Landscapes, figurative and other representational subjects with the largest dimension equal to or less than 14" (not including frame if work is two dimensional) will be considered for this show. Work must be completed in a fine art medium such as oil, pastel, graphite and watercolor.  The jpeg image file submitted for consideration should be approximately 8 x 10, 300 dpi. Submissions are due by April 2nd.

Notification: Jury results will be announced by the middle of April. Each artist will be individually notified via email, and before the show opens all work will be included on our site.  

Jury Fee: There is a jury fee of  $35 for the first two works, $50 for three, and $60 for four.

Shipping: All accepted artwork will need to arrive at the Center before May 5, 2017. The artist is responsible for shipping both to and from the show. All artwork will be insured from the time of its arrival until it is returned or sent to the buyer at the conclusion of the show. As in previous years, we need all two-dimensional work to be shipped in AirFloat containers. Should the artist choose not to use Airfloat containers a check for $35 to cover handling will need to be included with the artwork. If the artist would like to hand deliver the piece and pick it up at the conclusion of the show, that will be fine but please call in advance to ensure that staff is available to meet you. If the piece sells, we will still need an Airfloat container in which to ship your work to the buyer.  We can ask that the buyer return the Airfloat to you, COD.

Sales: The sales price of the artwork will be set by you. The Center will retain 40% of the price of two-dimensional work and 30% of the price of three-dimensional work. Please note that from the date the piece has been juried into the show and through the show's conclusion, any sale of that piece must be made through the Center, with the Center retaining commission. While artwork in our other galleries must remain with the exhibition until its conclusion before it can be sent to the buyer, pieces purchased from Small Works can leave with the buyer. We then give you the option to send a replacement piece of your choice.
