THEME: This is a fun and enthusiastic event where artists vie for 14 place awards, based on the cutting edge of your creativity. Creativity is encouraged to run rampant, both in work and in framing.
PRESENTATION: Think retail gallery.
INSTRUCTIONS: Entries limited to 6 /artist of most any medium. Large 3D work is encouraged, as this is the place for them. However, 2D work, not much larger than 6’ high x 6’ wide should work. Larger fabric pieces can be wrapped or draped around the walls and can also be over flowing on to the floor. Exceptions accepted on size if creative.
Install ID on each piece. Tie a string to the wire of the art long enough to dangle in the front of the art. Adhere a business type card to the string that has your name, phone, title of work, medium and price. 3D artists, think where to secure your tag for your work. These tags are for temporary ID until proper exhibit info tags are installed.
