Before submitting artwork, please read and be sure you understand thoroughly procedures and expectations for participating in our 2023 juried all-media shows (AMS).
You will need an artist statement - 200 Word limit in first person to register for the shows.
1. You do not have to create a portfolio site to enter the show.
2. The way you fill out the form is how it will be shown on the labels, awards, and publicity.
a. Use Capital Letters for the first letters of your name.
b. Prices - DO NOT TYPE IN A COMMA. This produces the wrong price. ArtCall will add it automatically
c. Measurements - HEIGHT first, then Width then Depth (H x W x D).
2D IMAGE REQUIREMENTS
3 images of each piece are required, one of the art without frame, one with frame, and a close detail image (zoomed into a small section of interest). If the art is unframed, only 2 photos are required.
NOTE: if the work is framed, we must have the outside measurements of the frame (H x W x D). Please do not guess. If we do not have the measurements for the art and/or the framed art, your piece will not be considered to jury. Walls and backgrounds SHOULD NOT SHOW in photos. When taking the digital image please make sure the photo is not at an angle or crooked.
E). Hanging art must be wired so it will hang with our system. Art that is not wired will be automatically rejected. Check the wires on the back: Are they loose? Are they too high so the hanger will show? Do you have just one hook (sawtooth)? If so, you take the risk of your art falling off the wall.
3D IMAGE REQUIREMENTS
For each 3D, installation, or wearable art entry, submit 3 images: one overall front image, one overall rear or sideview image, and one detail image (zoomed into a small section of interest).
• Detail images must show an important aspect of
the art. Make sure that both the full-view and detail images are oriented correctly.
d. Statement regarding the piece of art - The character limit is 300!! This is used for all publicity online and on labels. Spellcheck it as well as word count it!
e. FYI -You can go back in and add/edit images and edit text until the call ends.
f. Please double check all information.
After entering, please go back and double check your information. Did you enter the required 2 or 3 photos? Is your price correct? Measurements? Is your statement complete, or too long?
VERY IMPORTANT: You can delete and change photos, and change text within each submission up until end-of-call. Do not delete an entire submission and then replace it with a new one--ArtCall will charge you for a new submission!
Crossroads Art Center’s AMS are open to mid-Atlantic artists through a bimonthly call for entries, and cash prizes are awarded for the winners. Each show is juried by a prominent art professional from the community (a gallery director, curator, museum official, arts professor, or accomplished artist). Cash awards are given for 1st $100, 2nd $75, and 3rd $50 place winners. The 2023 AMS shows are exhibited at Crossroads Art Center and as an online exhibition where customers can shop directly from the website.
