Call for Entries to AVA's 2012 Holiday Salon
November 30 - December 24, 2012
E.N. Wennberg Gallery and Gallery 3
This year, AVA’s annual holiday extravaganza will have a new look. The exhibit, to be displayed in the E.N. Wennberg Gallery and Gallery 3, will be a “salon-style” affair; all the artwork will be hung or displayed salon-style! The adjacent spaces—the Rebecca Lawrence Gallery Entry and the Clifford B. West Gallery—will feature The Way We Worked, a Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition exploring America’s work history
(December 15, 2012 – January 27, 2013).
Artwork Delivery Dates:
Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18, 11am-5pm; Monday, November 19, 11am-7pm
Entry Specifications Have Changed. Please Read Carefully:
Eligibility: Current AVA membership. Membership not current? Join or Renew today! Annual membership is $45 for an individual or $65 for a family.
Entry Fee: $15 (per artist, not per piece)
Gallery Commission: AVA retains 40% of sales on artwork. All works must be for sale; in previous years, works priced under $400 have sold especially well.
No more than one large wall piece (max. 24” x 24”) OR two smaller wall pieces in any medium may be submitted.
All artwork will be hung or displayed salon-style; please keep this in mind when choosing work to submit.
Wall pieces must be framed, when appropriate, and wired for hanging. AVA reserves the right to refuse work that is not ready to display.
Three-dimensional works—including free-standing-pieces, pedestal pieces, and craft items—must be no larger than 36” wide.
Three-dimensional multiples and shrink-wrapped multiples must be discussed with AVA’s Exhibition Coordinator, Margaret Jacobs, prior to drop-off.
All submitted shrink-wrapped multiples will be grouped together and replenished as sold.
Submitted works might not be displayed simultaneously; the exhibit will change as works are sold.
Entry forms available here or hard-copy at drop-off.
