CALL FOR ENTRY

The Ashland Gallery Association invites members to participate in an inaugural online art show fundraising initiative beginning this year.

All current members are invited to participate in each of the three shows. This includes Artist Members, Working Studio Members, Artists Represented by a Gallery Member, or Artists Represented by a Neighboring Arts Organization Member.

If you are represented by a gallery, then please seek approval before submitting images to participate in any of the three shows.

Digital images of artwork must be submitted. Artwork will be displayed and available for purchase on our website.

Member/Ashland Gallery Association Split: 50/50. 50% of artwork sales will be donated to us and you will receive the other 50%.

Members are responsible for shipping or arranging for pick up of any artwork sold. A $10.00 shipping fee will be given to you to cover shipping costs if any artwork is shipped.

Any sold artwork must be shipped and delivered within seven days of the sale. We will issue your payment and $10.00 shipping fee, if applicable, within thirty days of the sale.

Shows will run until the deadline of the following show.

Members who participate are expected to promote and share the openings of the shows with their collectors, contact lists, and on social media.

Image Submission Requirements

Since these shows all feature a standard 9"x12" size, we want to keep the images somewhat congruent.

Please submit images with the 9"x12" artwork in the center and with some background space on each of the four sides. 

Images should be JPEG and in a square ratio, 1:1. 

The ideal image size is 1200x1200 pixels. If you are unable to edit and submit your images to meet this size and format, then please send an image with plenty of space on each of the four sides and we will edit it for you. 

If you would like to include a second image that is a close-up with details of the artwork, then also format this image as a JPEG, square 1:1 ratio, and 1200x1200 pixels.

If your artwork will come framed or matted, please indicate that and include an additional image showing the fully framed/matted artwork.

Photograph your artwork on a flat and simple background that doesn't distract from the composition. Artwork should be evenly lit, without any shadows and glare, and with the image in focus. 

Files should be named "LastName-FirstName-INKED.jpg".
