GALLERY READY PREPARING YOUR WORK
This step is ONLY for approved submissions.
All artwork for openings, receptions & special events must be provided Gallery Ready:
* Ready to hang with wires, hardware, properly attached. All wall pieces must have a strong hanging wire or other hanging mechanism attached to the back.
* If it is on canvas, usually the sides will be painted.
* Photographs & Digital Art must be Gallery Quality, at a minimum 300dpi, framed and ready to hang.
(No 72 dpi or low res images please. Make sure you are using the raw file.)
Note: Artwork submitted incorrectly may be eliminated from the show even if you have been approved via email. It is hard for us to always determine if your work is gallery ready via email.
TAGS, FORMS, PAYMENT & BIO
This step is only taken if your work has been accepted for a show.
* Print tags for your artwork or create your own.
* Tags are to be lightly taped to the bottom righthand side of your work.
* Leave the Artist Agreemnet Form at the bar in an envelope marked: Sept/October Artist Agreement Form For Jennah.
* Your artist bio/statement can be taped up on plain paper or framed and hung with hook and wire.
* Include your accepted means of payment and artist contact information.
Q: How much should I price my work?
A: Artwork prices vary. The majority of our art sells between the range of $80-$150. However, work has sold for as much as $800. If you want your work to move, price accordingly. We typically will not show work priced over $1500.
Email Questions to: art at alameda artists dot com (sound it out)
You can sell prints during your show if you decide to do an opening and/or closing reception. Do not leave prints at the location because there is no one to watch or manage them.
Display Ideas for Prints at Your Opening
Space is limited. Please provide a self-contained display stand and be sure to ask where the best place to put the display during your reception. Do not leave prints at the location.
The Studio 23 space is available to rent for classes, solo exhibits and special events.
To rent the gallery space please send all inquiries to [ art at alamedaartists dot com ] w/ subject “Rent Studio 23 Space”.
