This call for entry is open to any artist over the age of 18 who currently resides in the US. Artists are invited to submit up to three images per $35 entry in any combination of individual artwork or detail images. Artworks must have been created within the past two years and not previously shown in any other Ann Arbor Art Center exhibitions. Additionally, we request artwork dimensions do not exceed 72” in any direction.

The jurying process is anonymous; however, artists must submit a bio and CV as separate .doc or .pdf documents. Label the files using the following format: Lastname_Firstname_Bio and Lastname_Firstname_CV.

Please Note: This is a juried exhibition and all entries must be submitted digitally for consideration. Submission does not guarantee artwork acceptance and submission fees are non-refundable. Submissions will not be accepted past the deadline.

Accepted artwork must arrive “ready to hang” – the Art Center reserves the right to decline artworks that do not meet gallery standards or do not represent artist submission. Artists are expected to provide components necessary for special/nontraditional installations. For shipped artwork, artists are responsible for all shipping costs and insurance, if applicable.

It is preferable that artworks are for sale. The Art Center retains a 50% commission on all sold artwork.

Please read the Legal Agreement for full details on participation.
