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 will also showcase the work of Barbara and Ken Fulp in its new solo gallery: The Vault. 

The exhibition will be co-curated by gallery manager Amanda Bradley, and exhibition juror and Artist Ken Wright, and the exhibition reception is The Center’s Grand Opening in it’s new location. D’Art Center will have an in person public reception according to state COVID Guidelines, will do a FB Live of the reception awards, will upload the award video to YouTube, and will also list the exhibiting pieces for sale on the d’Art Center website.

1. The gallery staff will take great care handling artworks for exhibition. However, the d’Art Center, its staff, and gallery are not responsible for any damage that may occur. We strongly recommend artists insure the works themselves, and also purchase insurance from the shipping company used. Shipping your work means you agree to this.

**Disclaimer: D’Art Center’s insurance does not cover damage to art during shipping and transit to or from The Center. Artists should insure all work to and from The Center.

If the artist fails to list their address correctly, d’Art Center is not responsible for any fees associated with canceling and re-issuing a new award check to the artist.

3. The d’Art Center lists exhibiting work for sale using the price of the work listed on the artist’s CaFe account. It is the artist’s responsibility to ensure that their sale price is correct in their CaFe account, or to otherwise notify the gallery manager. If the artist fails to list the price correctly or fails to otherwise notify the gallery manager, d’Art Center is not finically responsible if the work was sold at the CaFe account listed price.

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.

 

The d’Art Center displays artist statements with the art work in its exhibitions. Please make sure that your artist statement on CaFe is 555 characters (including spaces and punctuation) or less. Please also make sure that your statement is free of grammatical errors.
