Students of Forum Art Centre taking Adult Art Classes or Workshops
Information for 2017 Fresh Art Show – June 22 – 25
CALL FOR ART SUBMISSIONS from all students who have taken an art class or workshop at the Forum Art Centre anytime from July 2016 to June 2017.
All entries of art should be brought to the Forum Art Centre by Thursday, June 15 by 5:00 at the latest. All clay entries have until Wednesday, June 21.
Continuing students (who have registered for at least one class) – should please consider entering at least two or more pieces. Beginners – you may want to enter only one or two pieces for sale or you can just exhibit a piece of art rather than selling it.
All entries must have an information tag attached to the art showing the artist’s name, title of work, medium and price. In addition all paintings must be ready to hang (with wire attached to back – we charge $5 per item to have it done for you).
IN ADDITION, EACH ENTRANT MUST PROVIDE AN INVENTORY OR ART SALES LIST OF THEIR SUBMITTED WORK WITH THE SAME INFORMATION AS YOUR TAGS AND YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION. This is our sales list of your art – for convenience send an email to email@example.com & you can fill in your own Excel sheet.
If you are entering shrink wrapped items – we will try to hang most of them with clips according to space or if you have many these can be displayed in your own box. We require you to fill out an inventory sheet for everything. Card and shrink wrap inventory sheets can also be obtained at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep in mind that although we do not charge any entry fees for our show, the Forum Art reserves the right to retain a 25% commission from the sale of any art to help cover our advertising and exhibition costs. We suggest a donation towards our exhibition if you are submitting work to this show and are not able to volunteer.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!
We always require volunteers for a show. We need you for setup, hanging, welcoming patrons, assisting with sales (receipting, handling cash & cheques, wrapping purchases), cleaning up & take down after the show.
Art pieces can be purchased by cheque, cash or online directly to Forum Art Centre. Buyers can take immediate possession of the art piece upon payment or can choose to pick up the piece at a later time.
WANT TO HELP ADVERTISE?
We can use all the free advertising we can get! Please direct any friends or family to our website or facebook page (www.forumartcentre.com) for dates & times & of course share on your social media or there are posters & invitations for all students to take to distribute available at the Forum Art.
EXTRAS! Who doesn’t love winning something? We’d like to have some door prizes to give away. If you’d like to make a donation that would be suitable for a door prize please consider it. If you know of a possible donor & could ask we’d appreciate it. If you know of a source but would like us to ask that works too.
