​​
Our goal this month is to focus on details for the exhibit art cards .
 DEADLINE: FRIDAY, JUNE 30TH 2019



An electronic database will be issued to you via email.
Please complete the fields highlighted in YELLOW.  Once you've entered your information, the  color format will disappear automatically.
YELLOW fields = Required info.

All N/A fields will be blank on the art card.

Confirmed art work does not have to be listed for sale and can be labeled as NFS. 


There are six columns that require information. (email, artist name, title, size, medium, and price)
Social media pages and/or a website can also be included on the art card but it is not mandatory. (last three columns, right side)



 








STEP 3

JULY 2019

Our goal this month is to confirm ART CARDS, signed liability forms, and continue to promote.



Liability forms will be issued to you via e-mail. All artists must return a signed liability form. Art work cannot be transported nor can we hang works without a signed liability form.

Deadline: July 31st, 2019



 

MARK 4

AUGUST 2019

Our goal this month is to prep art work and continue promoting! 



ART WORK PREP:

All 2D art work MUST be wired (no exceptions) close to the top of the frames.  All works must be framed or suitably presented. 
Hanging works may not exceed 15 lbs. 


All art work must be ready for travel! Please make sure you are not delivering raw art work to me.

Please use cardboard corner sleeves, boxes, plastic, ect. to ensure your works are protected from traveling from Indianapolis to Bloomington .
The event coordinator will be responsible for re-packing all works and returning them to Indianapolis.

3D Artists will be required to drop off and install art work personally with the assistance of the gallery staff. 



> Framing Tip: Anyone displaying delicate, petite works (in stature, not detail nor spirit) please consider that when you show

your work in a simple black frame it sometimes creates a simple reaction. 

Make sure the frame commands and matches your art's true potential. 
If you need assistance locating economically priced presentation pieces please inquire with your local thrift shops, vintage retail stores, or  ask friends for assistance before blowing your budget.

3. Invite your friends, family, and fans -
Looking for a good night of conversation, sales, and some comfortable ease? SELF PROMOTE!

It's an exciting evening and your loved ones -or those that oooohh and ahhh about your work - should be there!
