Notice to Artists

 

The deadline for sending your submission sheet to Johanne Dussault, via this website, is March 1st. However, the deadline to submit digitals of your works has been extended to March 25. 

 

Please note any digitals submitted after March  25  will not be included in the online show.

 

Artists who do not feel comfortable to submit to the show physically may opt to be in the online show only. All works will be judged whether physically in the gallery or only online.

 

Please state your decision if you only want to be online  to Johanne by March 1.

 

Due to gallery space, there is a possibility that some 2nd choice works will be eliminated from the physical show. The committee will inform artists if one of their works has been eliminated  prior to the delivery of works to gallery. Note all artists are guaranteed to have one work hung and, ideally, all works will be hung.  

 

Regards,

WASM Art Committee

Required Specifications - TWO works may be submitted.  If more than one work is submitted, limitations will be based on space, not on a value judgement. If you are submitting more than one work, please indicate on your submission form which is your preferred artwork to exhibit in the event that we have to reduce the number of entries.  WASM will make best efforts to honor that choice. At least ONE work is guaranteed to be exhibited, provided that it conforms with the following requirements:

  • Label - artist name, title of work, medium, size, and price must be written on a label and adhered to the back of each work.

  • Wiring - Each painting must be appropriately wired along with finished edges (any other hanging system cannot be accommodated).

  • Unframed Art - All edges of unframed canvases must have finished edges.

  • Signature - Sign art on the back (or underside if 3 dimensional) of each piece for anonymity during judging. If the signature is on the front it will be covered with a removeable sticker.
