How to Apply and Requirements:
All entries must be submitted electronically through the form below. Please email images as described in the form. Your file should be labeled with the artist’s last name, first name, and title of work. You may also include a short biography and artist’s statement in your email.
$25 entry for up to 3 images via PayPal. Once entry is submitted, fees are non-refundable regardless of acceptance into the exhibition.
Submissions must represent the actual artwork as closely as possible. If artwork is misrepresented in any way, FSFA reserves the right to refuse it for hanging. Work must be original and executed within the last three years. Work should be ready to hang by a wire or sawtooth hangers; no clips, nails, tape squares and other insecure hangers will be accepted. No work larger than 18’x18” will be accepted. A label should be attached to the back of each artwork listing your name, the title of the work, price, and medium.
Upon delivery, artists will be required to sign a release form giving FSFA the right to exhibit their work and waiving liability in the event of damage or theft.
If you are shipping artwork, it must be received by June 17th. Ship artwork carefully, in a box, with padding. We will return it to you in the same box, only if there is return postage by label or bill of lading from UPS, Fedex, or USPS. FSFA will not be held responsible for theft of art nor damage during shipping to and from the gallery. Any work that is not picked up within 1 week or is not prepared for return shipping will become the property of FSFA and will be sold to benefit the cooperative.
FSFA does not provide insurance for work that is damaged or stolen.
In the event of a sale, the artist may provide a replacement piece of the same size or FSFA will hang a new piece in its place. If you would prefer your piece remain up during the entire duration of the exhibit you need to let FSFA know that in writing. FSFA will handle all sales and send payment to the artists. If your artwork sells, 70% will go to you, and 30% to the gallery. FSFA requires artists to complete a W-9 for sales in excess of $600.
FSFA will make every effort to promote the exhibition through invitations and other forms of publicity. Email images of the show announcement and printed postcards will be available for distribution to artist’s personal contacts.
