CLOSED. Call For Art: Holiday Members’ Art Show & Sale

December 23, 2016 – January 21, 2017

Current members of the Harlow Gallery / Kennebec Valley Art Association only! (Click here to join.)

Harlow Gallery artist members are invited to submit one piece of art for the Annual Holiday Members’ Art Show and Sale. Patrons can buy work off the wall and take it home the same day. If your work is sold we’ll call you and you can bring in new work to replace the one that sold! All two dimensional media welcome including but not limited to: painting, drawing, printmaking, encaustic, and mixed media. We also welcome three dimensional media including but not limited to: fiberarts, pottery, glass work, woodworking, metal, and other mixed media. One work of art per member.

SIZE LIMIT
Member’s shows are very popular – we currently receive about 100 works, which is quite a challenging number to hang. So even though we love large format art, member’s shows just are not the place for it.

We have instituted a size limitation as follows for 2 dimensional work: Wall hung work should not exceed 18″x 24″ including the frame (or a total of 432 square inches for non- standard support sizes). Larger work will be accepted, but if there is a space problem oversize work will be the first to be cut. In other words, if you choose to bring in over-sized work we cannot guarantee you a spot in the show. Sculpture just needs to fit through the door already assembled.

MEMBERS’ SHOW GUIDELINES
Please read our members’ show guidelines before submitting your work. The exhibition committee reserves the right to reject work that does not meet the guidelines. CLICK HERE FOR MEMBERS’ SHOW GUIDELINES.

ENTRY FORM
To save time, please download and print the exhibition entry form, fill it out and bring it with you when you deliver your artwork to the gallery. We will have copies available at drop off also. CLICK HERE FOR ENTRY FORM

BIN SUBMISSIONS WELCOME
During members’ shows, current members may submit up to 2 pieces of original 2 dimensional work (no reproductions or giclee prints). Paper work should be matted or mounted on board, and shrink wrapped or bagged in mylar bags, and no larger than 18″ x 24″. We have added a second bin for unframed work on canvas or panel, which must be no larger than 16″ x 20″. Submission limit is 2 per artist not 2 per bin. Your work must be labeled on the back with the following information: artist’s name, title, media and price (price to include Harlow 35% commission). Unsold work must be picked up at the same time as the work in the members’ show.

IMPORTANT DATES PLEASE NOTE UPDATED DELIVERY TIMES
Art delivery: Sunday, December 18, 12-4pm or Monday, December 19, 4-6pm.
Opening reception/Holiday party: Friday, December 23, 5-8pm. (potluck! Please bring a dish or beverage to share)
