All artists must be 18 years of age or older, and be a resident of Washington State.
Entries must be original, entirely the work of the entrant, and executed within the past three years (since 1/1/2019). Work must have been done without the supervision of an instructor.
Copies of existing artworks or works solely based on copyrighted artworks are not eligible.
REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GRANTED TO APPLICANTS WHO ARE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT.
ENTRY FEE: $45.00 total, for one to two artworks.
ENTRY METHOD: On-line through CaFE, at www.callforentry.org. You will need to create an account (unless you already have one). It’s free. Follow all instructions for each entry.
A maximum of TWO entries per artist is permitted. Artists may enter more than one category. All entries will be juried from digital images. Awards will be judged from the original works of art.
Two-dimensional (2D) work may not exceed 8 feet in longest dimension or weigh more than 75 lbs.
All 2D works on paper must be under glass or Plexiglas.
Shipped work must use Plexiglas.
Any 3D work must fit within a 4 x 4 x 9 foot space, and weigh less than 400 lbs.
If the artist wishes to supply more than one view of a 3D work, please create and submit a composite image showing both views. (or, a short video file showing all sides of the work may be submitted.)
All work must be gallery-ready for display, with the appropriate framing, hanging wires, supports, etc. Sawtooth hangers or ring hangers are not permitted.
Artists may not substitute another work for an accepted work, alter an accepted work, change the sales price, or withdraw a work after it has been entered or accepted.
We may ask artists submitting work requiring very complicated installation to help with the installation of that work.
All work must be for sale. Collective Visions Gallery will retain a 33% commission on all sales. Collective Visions Gallery reserves the right to refuse to display any entry which does not meet the criteria stated in this prospectus.
Early pickup of artwork is not permitted! There will be a $25 storage fee for all work (except work to be shipped back to the artist) not picked up on February 26 or 27, 2022.
While the show will be hung as usual on the gallery walls, gallery hours may be limited or subject to change due to Covid-19 concerns.
Whether open to visitors or not, the CVG Show will host an Online Gallery and Shop.
Art lovers will be able to see all accepted artwork and make purchases.
NOTIFICATION AND DELIVERY OF ACCEPTED WORKS:
Official notification will be via e-mail from Call for Entry (CaFE). Acceptance or rejection status (invited or not-invited status) of artwork can be also viewed online on your account at www.callforentry.org
Artworks can be hand-delivered or shipped.
Artists who live in places that may be affected by winter weather conditions may want to consider shipping accepted works instead of hand-delivering.
Shipping instructions will be included in the notification e-mail letter. The artist entrant will be responsible for shipping charges in both directions. A return, pre-paid shipping label MUST be included with all shipped artworks.
No cash, postage stamps, or money orders will be accepted for return. Artwork shipped without a return shipping label will not be displayed during the show, unless advance arrangements are made for the artist to pick up the artwork at the gallery during pick-up days (February 26 and 27, 2022; 1 to 5 pm).
Every precaution will be taken to handle artworks with the utmost care. However, neither Collective Visions Gallery or the co-sponsors of the exhibition will be responsible for damage or loss from any cause. Artists are responsible for insuring their own work for loss or damage.
LIABILITY: Artworks will be insured for liability while at Collective Visions Gallery. However, the construction and design of the work must not present a hazard to the public
PHOTOGRAPHY: Collective Visions reserves the right to photograph entries for purposes of publicity, documentation, education, and promotion.
Entry via CaFE only. A maximum of TWO entries per artist is permitted. Artists may enter more than one category. All entries will be juried from digital images.
All Washington State artists over the age of 18 are invited to submit work.
