18” x 18” Open Call for Entry at the artdc Gallery.
« on: March 26, 2013, 01:15:17 PM »
We are excited to announce we are presenting our next small works show.  Previously we offered a 12”x12” show, we’re now expanding for more room! 18”x18”  Previously we sold over 20 works of art in a past small work show, now’s the time to do it again!

This our favorite fundraiser for artdc.org!

In this all inclusive show artists are invited to submit art limited to 18x18 inches! Each 18”x18” space in the show will have a $12 hanging fee.  Note we are keeping the old the old $12 hanging fee!  More space for the same cost as before.

Submit work including, but not limited to, photography, painting, mixed media, sculpture, lead, ceramics, glass, and more. 

Find details on the 2010 12x12 here: http://artdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=14803.0

This show has a 12% commission for sales in the gallery.  No price limit vs the $500 previous cap. All sales are handled directly through the artist.

The reception will take place on May 11, 2013
12:00 - 5:00 PM during the Gateway open studio tour:
http://www.gatewayopenstudios.org/

Install Sunday April 28, 2013 Noon, 12pm
Reception Event May 11, 2013
Noon
The artdc Gallery will install the work.  Please bring your work ready to hang with a wire installed on the back.  Contact us if you plan to construct installation work for details and limitations (18”x18”x18”)

Plan to De-Install Sunday, May 26, 2013 at 11am.

For those who wish to pre-register, use the google check out link in the payment portal, then bring your receipt to the install at the gallery.  Work must be delivered by the artist or agent authorized to sign an artist agreement.

Make sure you get a spot, and pre-register here:
http://artdc.com/payments/
(yes the payment portal is at .com, our gallery page)

We're excited to see the spots starting to move!  You are welcomed to reserve multiple spots up to 12! To do so, click “Buy Now” multiple times. If you need more than 12, contact us to insure that there is enough space.

To recap:

  • All inclusive show (limited by space)
  • Art is limited to 18x18 inches.
  • Art may be less than 18" x 18" and does not need to be square.
  • There is a $12 hanging fee for each work. (the fee is the same even if the work is smaller than 18x18)
  • Each work requires a hanging fee, one work per space.
  • Pre-Register 11 works and get an extra space for free.
  • Works will be submitted including, but not limited to, photography, painting, mixed media, sculpture, lead, ceramics, glass, installation art, and more.
  • 12% commission payable to Fine Art Ventures, LLC for sales in the gallery. 
  • Artist is responsible for all tax obligations.
  • artdc.org Patron's of artdc get a $2 discount per work (PM for discounted link)
Find images from the 2010 12x12 show here:
http://artdc.com/2010/04/27/2010-12x12/

Yes it’s a new idea to charge a hanging fee and commission, but for sales this works out to the artist’s benefit (due to the low commision)!  For a $100 dollar sale, the fees to the gallery work out to 24%.  For sales of of $250 the fees work out to 16.8% = (12% + $12).  The higher the sale, the lower the over all percentage the gallery fee is!

Great question! Through our email list of over 2,400 contacts, Facebook, Twitter, artdc.org, artdc.com, through Gateway’s Open Studio Event, and  we release our PR to a select number of websites who often pick up our events like PinkLine, DCist.com, citypaper, the post, though we can’t guarantee who will pickup our PR.  We also invite artists to post the PR on their blogs, along with other event calendars.

Awesome. I can’t wait to see your stuff! Over 65 works of art registered so far!  I’m really pleased. This is going to be a unique show to install. In 2010 we had so much fun mixing artist’s work together with others to create a cool flow!

I still enjoy looking at the pictures of the ’10 install!

@naewing
As stated above: Install Sunday April 28, 2013 Noon, 12pm (Yes, by install we would need it delivered on that date and time)  We’ll be there taking down art from the previous show at 11am, if you need to come early, but things may be a bit hectic for early artists!

Just a note to artists! I know it goes with out saying, but please consider presenting your work in a professional manner with appropriate hanging wires on the back of your work. If you’re using pre-made frames from a big box store, consider adding 2 d-rings with a wire apposed to the tiny hangers or sawtooth hangers included. With multiples, when I show, I try to create a uniform distance between the wire and the top of my work.

Why? We’re planning to install 70-150 works of art depending on the volume of registration, that’s going to take a lot of time and effort on our part, so it will make our jobs a lot easier if the work has an appropriate hanging mechanism. It will also make potential collectors happy when your art is easy to hang. 

Need further framing advice? I happen to work for a frame shop, so I’m glad to give you my insight. The biggest piece of advice I can offer is to respect your work!  Drop me a PM or email if you want to discuss this information.

If you have an installation piece please do contact me to discuss the details.

One other request, if you could, please attach your title and contact information to the back of your work! While you are all awesome for being creative we may not know who you are, or be able to read your signature, so this little detail can be so valuable!

Thanks for your help, and don’t worry, we have post-it notes if you forget!

Me too, Jesse!  Nah, really, I'm sure I'll figure out which 3 I want to show.  I'm looking forward to seeing all the other artwork as well.  Are you going to hang some work in the show?  How many spaces have been purchased so far?
