Tribute: A National Exhibition of Paintings that Pay Homage to People, Places, and Things
Description: Tribute is a national exhibition that features paintings from artists from across the country. This exhibition is open to 2D fine art and fine craft in all paint mediums. In theme and content, artworks should pay tribute to a person, place, or thing of great importance to the artist. The Tribute exhibition at d’Art Center is in honor of Barbara Fulp. Barbra was a resident artist at d’Art Center who passed in 2019. She is greatly missed by all who knew her.
This exhibition is open to all artists living in the United States and is held at the d’Art Center in Norfolk, Virginia. The d’Art Center is Norfolk’s thirty-year-old art center and includes working professional artist studios and provides a wide variety of exhibitions and programming open to the public.

All accepted works must arrive by Tuesday, May 1st, 2020 without exception.
Hand delivered works are accepted through pre-arrangement; please contact
Artists must issue pre-paid return labels for their works through UPS or FedEx. We do not arrange shipping in any other manner. Works must have pre-paid return labels through FedEx or UPS to be returned which allows us to call for pick up as the Center’s insurance does not cover transporting work offsite to local shipping companies or the United States Postal Service, which is why the postal service is not an option for shipping.
Works should be shipped in reusable containers for return. PLEASE MAKE YOUR RETURN LABEL EASY TO FIND UPON UNPACKING. Clearly indicate any packing directions for return of works. Works that do not include a return label, and/or works that are not picked up within one month of the end of the exhibition become property of the d’Art Center.
NO PACKING PEANUTS. Works packaged with packing peanuts will be returned immediately and not included in the exhibition.
Entry Fees and Materials: Artists may submit up to 3 artworks for consideration (one image per submission) and the entry fee is $35.00. Commission for works is 60% (artist)/ 40% (d’Art), not including awards.
