Artist Entry Terms & Guidelines

 

Instructions to Exhibiting Artists

  • Artwork must arrive at the gallery, framed or mounted, with either hanging wire or cleats in order to accommodate our hanging system. Artwork lacking hanging wire or cleat is subject to a $10 fee.

  • All work should be professionally matted or mounted and framed – White or black wood or metal frames preferred unless alternate framing style is integral to the piece. The gallery cannot accommodate unmounted works (such as, the gallery does not pin work to the walls.) Glass is acceptable if delivering framed work in person. Plexiglass/acrylic is required on all shipped framed work.

  • All artworks must have an identifying label on the back that includes: artist’s name, phone, email, website, address, along with the title of the artwork and the retail price.

  • APG’s commission is 30% of the selling price on all sales in any APG exhibition that may be in the main gallery or any off-site APG organized exhibition.

  • APG reserves the right to reject any work that differs from the work submitted or is not exhibition ready in quality or presentation.

  • Insurance of the art work is the responsibility of the artist, APG is not responsible for damage or loss in transit or in the gallery. APG will take care of the art work to the best of its ability.

  • APG maintains a selection of frames available for a nominal rental fee. Frames are available in several sizes, most are standard black or white wood or metal. Frames are available on a first come basis and may be reserved through our Frame Loan Program.

  • APG reserves complete creative control over the exhibition’s design, including selection, layout, and installation.

  • Artwork must not be removed from any exhibition before the closing date, for any reason. Artwork must remain during the entire run of the exhibition, from the installation date to the closing date. Artists will be notified when artworks are available to pick up, or when the return shipment is made.

  • APG reserves the right to disqualify any artwork that does not meet the print or presentation quality standards acceptable for gallery exhibition. Membership & Juried exhibition entry fees are non-refundable.


Exhibition Labels

After you have been notified of your selection or inclusion in an exhibition, complete this form with your information for the exhibition labels: name, title, year, price, media, etc…


Liability & Agreement

  • Applicants warrant that the entry submission is the original work of the artist and, as such, the artist is the sole and exclusive owner and rights holder of the submitted work, and that the party submitting has the right to submit the work for exhibition and grant all required licenses.

  • Artists maintain copyright on all of their work. By submission, artists grant APG the right to use their images for the purpose of marketing the exhibition and other APG programs; and for reproduction online. Artists grant the use of their image(s) as stated without further contact or compensation from APG. Artist’s recognition (which may be in the form of a watermark or credit line) is provided with any use.

  • Any artwork not picked up from the APG Gallery within 60 days of the scheduled pickup will be considered abandoned by the artist and become the property of APG. Please make note of the pick up deadline date listed in the email.


Shipping

  • Shipped artwork must arrive in reusable containers/boxes with reusable padding.

  • Frames should be wrapped in bubble wrap, bubble pouches or plastic bags with minimal tape. Plexiglass/acrylic is required in any framed artwork that is shipped to the gallery.

  • Artist is responsible for costs to deliver or ship art to gallery and for return to artist. Please include a pre-paid return shipping label in the delivery packaging if shipping.

  • Boxes or crates must be re-usable. Use of packing peanuts is forbidden, use minimal packing tape if wrapping pieces with bubble wrap. Give this some thought – if you tape up the padding like a mummy, then we will have to cut apart your padding to get to the art.

Delivery can be made to the gallery in person during regular gallery hours, Wednesday – Saturday, 12 – 4pm, or ship via any carrier (Gallery is not open on Mondays, please schedule shipments to arrive on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday)
