Digital Images (Due by March 1):
We plan to create an online component for this show. Please email hi-res JPEG image of your work to pacgalleries@gmail.com. Please title your email “Members Miniatures Image” and include your name and the title of the work in the body of the email. Your image should be labelled LastName_FirstName.jpg. Do not email your images to Michael. They must be emailed to pacgalleries@gmail.com by March 1.

Due to current staffing limitations, we are not able to provide photography assistance. All artists are responsible for their own photography. If work is under glass, we strongly recommend you photograph it before framing. A clear smartphone photo is fine.

Please be considerate of what a large undertaking each exhibition catalogue is. We can only create virtual exhibition components if all artists follow our directions.

Exhibition Dates: March 8 – March 25 in Dodge House Gallery

Eligibility:
Open to Exhibiting Artist Members only, one submission per artist. No diptychs, triptychs, etc. Works in all media are welcome. All works must be listed for sale, with the Art Club taking a 25% commission. There is no price cap, but prices must be listed.

Size:
Size limit is 10” x 10”, including the frame. Works may not exceed 10″ in any direction, and may not weigh more than 100lbs. Remember, the theme of this show is miniatures…

Preparation:
Works must be properly prepared for installation. Works on paper must be framed and under glass, and works on canvas should be framed or must be displayed on gallery wrapped canvas. Works should be wired securely with D-Rings. We realize that due to the small scale of this show D-Rings may not work in all cases. If you feel a different hanging apparatus is more appropriate for your work, you must have it approved in advance by the gallery manager. Paintings that are wet to the touch will not be accepted.

Submission and Delivery
(Images Due by March 1, Art Due by March 3):

All artists must fill out the online entry form in advance of drop off, must email a JPEG image of their work to pacgalleries@gmail.com in advance of drop off, and must label the back of their work with their name and the title of the piece in advance of drop off. We have discontinued use of paper entry forms in the gallery. If you do not complete these three simple steps in advance, your work will be turned away.

Drop off will take place March 1 – 3 during gallery hours only (weekdays 12-4pm). Works must be delivered to a member of the gallery staff and may not be left unattended at the Club. If you would like to deliver your work in advance of these dates or outside of gallery hours, please schedule an appointment to do so with Michael Rose. He will be happy to assist!

Packing Material:
We cannot store packing material. If your packing material is precious to you, please take it home at time of drop off. Packaging left with artworks will be disposed of and will not be returned. If a work is particularly fragile and needs to remain wrapped until installation, please inform the gallery manager and he will be happy to accommodate you.

The Art Club reserves the right to reject works that are improperly prepared or that otherwise do not meet our standards at the discretion of the Art Committee and Gallery Manager.
