Amount of work
Since the works are going to be shipped to places that are not going to be huge in size, I'm going to have to limit the amount of works to no more than 60 pieces for this show so I'm taking no more than the first 60 members fill out and
ONE WORK only per artist and it must must be no LARGER than 12”h x 12”w x 3”d Framed (8"X10", 8"X8", 6"X12" 5"X 6" in other words no side can be longer than 12"). The display areas may not be huge and it makes them easier to transport. All work must be ready to hang with securely attached, braided picture wire. Use "D-rings", large screw eyes, or whatever that’s provided on metal frames . Do not use "sawtooth hangers" Remember frames, glass, plex-a-glas, acrylic, and hanging wire are for the purpose of protecting the work. The wire prevents the work from falling off the wall and breaking or hitting someone. It also lets the work to be hung faster.
NOTE: The works are going to be handled several times so things can happen. All care will be taken but Michael, CAEA, the transporting services and the galleries and display areas are not to be held responsible for damage. You may cover yourself by using your own insurance plan
Each 2-D piece MUST HAVE a braided picture wire firmly attached to the back (preferably with “D rings”, screw eyes or whatever that’s provided on metal frames ). The wire prevents the work from falling off the wall. It also allows the ability to hang the work faster. Legibly write your name, title, media and price on the back of your work
If your doing clay or any kind of sculptural work it has to stay within the above size parameters. it must be able to hang on the wall not sit on a pedestal.
I would like for you to make a work that amazes you and is brand new. It's so easy to just grab a work thats covered in dust that's been abandoned in a corner of your studio or space. My goal of doing this is to inspire you to do something exciting and new. Something that's popped into your mind and makes you say "YES I want to make that!". You may work in any media. Look at the suggestion below:
Suggestion #1 Think about layers, negative space, & overlapping of shapes and space.
Suggestion #2 Create in mixed media. If you use a ''shadow box" frame you can work with an 1" to 2" thickness.
Suggestion #3 A cool collage of photos, magazines, "junk", etc.
Work must be finished and delivered by 11am, March 1st, 2017 to
