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.
