Destination: Art Associate Members’
2017 Exhibition June 1 – 30, 2017
2017 Exhibition June 1 – 30, 2017
To participate in this show, you must be a current paid Associate member of Destination: Art as of April 15, 2017.
Artwork will be juried into the exhibition by a Destination: Art Studio and/or Gallery Artist. Each Associate member will have at least one piece in the Exhibition, and the desire is to have two each, depending on space.
Associate Members must participate in some way such as at the take-in, making labels, hanging the show, creating publicity materials, planning and hosting the reception, cleaning up after the reception, or the take down.
Winners will be judged by an invited Distinguished Artist. There will be awards as follows: Best of Show; First Place; Second Place; Third Place; and two Honorable Mentions.
Each member may submit up to four artworks. The registration fee of $35 includes up to two pieces, and each additional piece is $10.
Artwork must be original and personally executed.
Artwork must be no longer than 48” in either direction, including frame.
Painting must be wired for hanging. Use D-rings or screw eyes only, placed 1/3 down from the top of the frame. Saw tooth hangers are unacceptable. Use braided wire that is sturdy enough to support the artwork. The peak of the hanging wire should be approximately 2 inches from the top of the center of the frame.
Frames must be sturdy, neat, and simple. Mats are to be clean, well cut, and neutral in color. Mats must be in proportion to the frame, i.e., frame must be the correct size for the painting.
Frames are preferred but oils or acrylics may be gallery wrapped.
Each artwork must be labeled on the back with Artist’s name, Title, Medium, Image Size, and price. Use 3x5 card or business card.
Artwork may not be removed from the show until the exhibit closes. Artwork may not be moved on exhibit walls after placement by the Exhibition Director.
All artwork will be for sale, unless the artist designates the painting is not for sale. The purchase price must be clearly written on the painting. If an artist sells a painting at the show, each artist is responsible to make a donation of 20% for each painting sold to Destination: Art. Each artist is responsible for their own sales tax unless the buyer pays by credit card on the Destination: Art credit account.
We need to have your commitment so we can be assured that we will fill the gallery.
The Agreement Form and check must be received by Destination: Art as soon as possible or by May 15, 2017. These can be mailed to Destination: Art, 1815 W. 213th St., #135, Torrance, CA 90501 or placed in the folder in the Destination: Art Workroom. The take-in date is May 30, 2017.
