Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Old West Museum

1st Annual New Frontiers Juried Art Show and Sale

November 4 – December 4, 2022

Statement of Purpose:

The New Frontiers Art Show will be a show that pushes the definition of Western Art and is accessible to all types of buyers, from those who are just starting to collect art, to collectors looking for something different. This show will be proof that everyone plays a role in our Western heritage, and demonstrate to Museum visitors, art show patrons, guests, and our community that the West we honor is alive and evolving.

Selection Process:

All art in the New Frontiers Juried Art Show and Sale is selected by an independent jury comprised of professionals in the art community. Artwork for the specialty wall display is selected by the artist following acceptance into New Frontiers. Award judging of the artwork is completed the Thursday before the New Frontiers Opening Reception.

·         All accepted works must arrive at the Museum show ready (i.e., wire-strung, framed, mounted, and matted).

·         2-D works may have a gallery edge but need to be ready to hang and have a proper wire hang system.

·         We do NOT accept saw tooth hangers, protruding eye screws, or keyhole slots.

·         Artists must tape their wire ends and provide enough slack on the wire tension to allow for safe hanging.

·         Acrylic and Museum Glass are acceptable materials for any media under glass.

·         If you have display concerns, please contact us at least 2 months prior to the show so we have time to address your concerns.

Museum Staff have final determination regarding the mounting and display of artwork, including the right of refusal.

All 2-D pieces must be measured to include framing.

  • 2-D pieces will not exceed 47 inches horizontal or 60 inches vertical.
  • 3-D pieces will not exceed three square feet at the base.
  • Suspended sculptures will follow 2-D guidelines.
  • All artwork that exceeds size limitations will not be displayed and will be returned at the artist’s expense.
  • All framed artwork needs to include two measurements, both the outside dimension size of the frame and the size of the piece unframed by itself.

Originals, Multiples, & Series:

All artworks must be original. Derivatives of another artist’s work will not be accepted. If an artwork is determined to be derivative by the Museum Staff, it will be excluded from the show; Museum Staff will have the final decision. All artworks having multiples available must be disclosed with the number available at the time of submission. Available prints cannot be included within the multiples available for traditional art. Artwork must have been created within the last 3 years and not been previously shown at any CFD Old West Museum Art Show.

Original Works of Art:

All submitted art needs to be original in concept, design, and execution by the submitting artist. All artworks must have been generated within the last three years and not been previously displayed for sale at the CFD Old West Museum (Western Spirit, Western Art Show, New Frontiers, APA Show).

Pieces should not be derivative of artwork by other artists from another medium or another time. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of Museum Staff if:

·         The piece is an original re-interpretation of the modeled work that only the submitting artist could achieve.

·         The submitting artist acknowledges the original artist and title in their own title.

·         The submitting artist has not violated copyright law.

·         The submitting artist has secured permission from the original artist or heirs in writing if such permission is available.

The Museum Staff reserves the right to decline any submitted work that violates these guidelines.

Sales:

The goal of this show is to introduce people to the joy of art buying, so make sure pieces are priced appropriately. All artworks must be for sale. The Museum collects a 35% commission for each sale. Artists should adjust their price accordingly prior to submission. Art prices will not change after submission. Any artwork exhibited or commissioned work sold within 30 days of the art show’s close is subject to a 35% sales commission to the Museum. Artists may only sell artwork accepted for the art show on the Museum premises (including the Museum’s websites and social media channels) except for special commissioned pieces with the consent of the Art Coordinator. The Museum will handle transactions for the artist to include the 35% commission. Accepted artwork must remain on exhibit until the art show closes. Once accepted for the art show, the artist cannot alter or sell the accepted piece. Artists cannot make changes to the artwork or its arrangement while on exhibit in the Museum. If the artist sells an accepted piece before delivery, the artist will owe the Museum the same 35% sales commission as if the piece sold in the show and the artist will forfeit their ability to enter any future Museum show for a period of 24 months.

Hand Delivery/Pick-Up of Accepted Work:

Hand-delivered artwork must arrive at the Museum Art Show Office the week of September 26 – September 30, 2022, M-F, 9a.m.- 4p.m. Pick-Up for unsold art is December 6 – December 9, 2022, Tu-F, 9a.m. – 4p.m. Please notify the Museum via email at amanda.byzewski@oldwestmuseum.org about any last-minute pick-up changes. Please email the Museum two weeks prior to the end of the show if you will have a representative pick up your work.

Shipping of Accepted Work/Return Shipping:

All shipped artworks MUST include a preprinted return shipping label with barcodes for every box delivered to the Museum. If the artist does not provide a return shipping label by October 28, 2022, the Museum will return their artwork C.O.D. using a carrier of the Museum’s choice at the close of the show. Plan on your work arriving at the Museum the week of September 19 – September 23, 2022. Shipped art will be sent out by the end of the day on December 16, 2022. Artists are responsible for additional shipping costs due to refused or returned artwork. If your artwork needs to be shipped somewhere or returned immediately at the close of the show, please let the Museum know before the artwork arrives so proper arrangements can be made to ship your art immediately at the close of the show. Please send artwork to:

CFD Old West Museum

Attn: Art Show Coordinator

4610 N. Carey Ave

Cheyenne, WY 82001

 

*If artwork does not arrive on time, it will not be displayed in the show or online and will be returned when all art is shipped out, at the Museum’s convenience.

 

Packing Artwork:

No packing peanuts allowed. Artists shipping with packing peanuts will have a $50 repacking penalty. The Museum will ship artwork back with packing materials provided by the artist. Artists who do not provide adequate packing materials will be charged a flat $20 fee for new packing material, which must be paid prior to artwork being shipped back to the artist. Our preferred packaging for 2-D work is the Airfloat System. Artists with 2-D pieces should ensure that their artwork is secure in its framing prior to shipping. If you pack art by yourself, adequate packing means there is no movement of the box’s contents during shipping. One way to check for adequate packing, once you have packed your art, is to pick up the box and gently shake it in all directions. If you hear the contents shift, then add more packing material.

Specialty Wall Display:

Artists juried into the show may bring two small pieces of artwork that fit the Specialty Wall theme for the year. These two pieces are not part of your initial entries. The 2022 theme is ornaments. These pieces should be small enough and light enough to be able to hang on a standard tree. Artists will deliver the ornaments along with their accepted juried pieces of art. Artists must adhere to the strict size restrictions listed in the prospectus. Artwork that does not adhere will be disqualified. Artists must submit Title, Medium, Price, Number Available, Name of Artist, and an Image of the piece by September 12, 2022. Late submissions will not be accepted.

The maximum size for the ornaments is no more than 6 inches on any side. The ornament must be able to hang on a tree.

Awards:

·         Best of Show: $1000

·         2nd Place: $500

·         3rd Place: $250

·         Best Ornament: $250
