No later than February 14, 2020

Submission Guidelines: Works utilizing any media including print, paint, fabric, digital, and poetry will be accepted in both 2D and 3D formats. However, 2D works must be ready to install with either a wire or saw-tooth hanger and 3D installation works or sculpture must be freestanding as we have no display cases or pedestals in the gallery (although if you are able to provide your own this is also acceptable, just please make a note of this on the submission form), but rope barriers can be obtained for these works. Sculptural works that can hang on the wall are also acceptable, but must be equipped with a hanging apparatus.

Please submit jpeg images of each artwork, and please give file names to each image such as “Smith1.jpg”, “Smith2.jpg”, etc. This ensures each image will stay matched with information you submit.

Please provide a value for your work even if you do not intend to sell, as these values are recorded for insurance purposes.

Execute your submission-form, and image transfers by using the form below.

Note: Please ensure there are no typos in your submission. The curators will select artwork, specify insurance, and generate gallery labeling directly from the unedited information you submit. Once the information has been submitted there will be no changes.
