ENTERING THE SHOW

The entry fee for the 65th Members’ Show is $30 (includes your Brunch). Additional Brunch guests will be $20pp. Checks are payable to: Artists’ Workshop, Inc. or register and pay online at www.artistsworkshopnsb.com , starting February 1st. You must register your artwork before you come to drop it off! You can do this online February 1-28th, or you can fill out the paper form and mail it in, or you can bring the paperwork to the studios M-F from 10-3. If you have questions or need help with this please call the Studio offices at 386-424-9254. This year we are offering two times to bring your artwork in to the studios: please come on Friday, March 3, from 1:30-4:30 PM, or on Saturday morning, March 4, from 9-Noon. Please bring your entry with a completed label attached to the back of your 2-D pieces. 3-D pieces must be accompanied with completed label to be placed beneath or alongside the entry. A signed “Waiver of Liability” is required for entry which can be filled out at drop off.

One piece of artwork per person is allowed. Water media that requires covering must use Plexiglas or Acrylic. Pastel work may use glass. Proper framing requires using strong braided wire that is securely attached on the back, approximately one third down from the frame top. This enables the artwork to lay flat against the wall. No sawtooth hangers, fishing line, plastic or other materials will be accepted. Wrapped canvases must have painted edges, if not framed. Multiples must be displayed with one hanger, (meaning all panels must be firmly connected within the 40” size limit).

White, off-white, gray or black mats are preferred, but if colored mats are important to your piece’s presentation, they are acceptable. Simplicity in framing is recommended for a judged show. Size limitations apply. Work weighing more than 25 lbs. cannot be hung with our setup and will not be accepted. 2-D artwork must not exceed 40” on any side, including the frame. 3-D artwork must fit on a pedestal and be no wider than 18”, with a few exceptions determined by the Members show chairman. Clay pieces require felt pads to protect the glass or wood surfaces for display. Smaller works are encouraged to enable as many members to participate in the show as space allows. Multiples of 3-D artwork must be connected on a base within the 18” size limit.
