Application Requirements

Procedures and Details

•  Submission for this exhibition is handled exclusively through CaFE.  All submitted artwork must be uploaded to this site.   One to three pieces of artwork can be submitted.  Artists who encounter technical difficulties can request help from CaFE staff at cafe@westaf.org.  Questions related to the exhibit can be sent to the Exhibitions Directer Andrea Frank at Exhibitions@fineartsleagueofcary.org.

 

•  It is very important that artists upload only one photo for each piece of art being submitted.  Thus, if the artist submits one piece, they will submit only one photo, or two photos for two pieces of art, etc.  Please check that the artwork is properly oriented in the photo, that the frame or other peripheral objects are not included.  Attention should also be given to the keystone effect and glare, which are common issues in photographing artwork.   The exhibition juror will select the participating pieces from these digital photographs; the prize winners will be selected from the original art.

 •  CaFE has specific requirements regarding the file sizes of the photo submitted.  Follow their directions or contact their staff.  In short, photos cannot exceed 5MB and the resolution must be 72dpi.

  • Please include this information on the back of your artwork:  your name, title of your piece, code name (i.e. JED1), medium (list all mediums used), price, email address, phone number.  For your convenience, you may use the tag at the end of this prospectus. FALC will use this information to correctly identify your piece.
