Call for Artists: Holiday Art Show

Holiday Art Show November 17, 2017 – January 06, 2018

The Cameron Gallery at The Scrap Exchange is hosting an open-call Holiday Art show. The show, opening Third Friday, November 17th, is open to all artists that incorporate reclaimed materials or found objects into their work. All artwork should be priced from $25 to $150. (The Scrap Exchange maintains a 60/40 split with artists on sold works. Artists receive 60% of the sale price).

DETAILS:

  1. Artists may submit up to five pieces. Work size is limited to 2’ by 3’. All works must incorporate creative reuse and arrive ready to hang. We welcome work in all media and have a few pedestals available for sculpture display. Artists are responsible for pricing their work. We will issue checks
    to artists for sold artwork 2-4 weeks after the show closes on January 6, 2018.
  2. There is no application procedure. Artists are required to bring finished work, ready to hang to
    The Scrap Exchange during store hours on the following days only: Thursday, November 9 (11am-5:00 pm), Friday, November 10 (11am – 5:00 pm), and Saturday, November 11 (10am – 5:00 pm).
  3. When you arrive for drop-off, check in with Diana Shark, the Cameron Gallery Coordinator to complete a Contract, Inventory List, and apply ID labels (labels will be provided). Label each piece clearly and legibly with artists name, title and price and apply to back of each piece. A duplicate label with an inventory number will be generated from your completed inventory list and displayed next to each work by a gallery member prior to opening. Please make sure the information on the inventory sheet matches the label placed on the back of each piece to avoid confusion.
  4. Celebrate the show’s opening on Third Friday, November 17! Bring your friends and family and encourage them to purchase work from the show. We will provide free food and beverages. Art making in the Make-N-Take room is free on Third Fridays.
  5. All artwork is grab-n-go, meaning customers can remove pieces from the gallery walls at the time of purchase. We will contact you when your work sells. Artists can replace sold works with additional pieces on Wednesdays from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm ONLY. Please allow time for the existing inventory list to be updated when dropping off new work.
  6. The show closes on January 6, 2018. Please make plans to collect unsold work by Monday, January 8, 2018. Uncollected work becomes property of The Scrap Exchange on January 13 and may be sold.
