   Image by Liz Cutler, oils on canvas, for 10x1◼️ $110

All art for this exhibit will be 10” x 10” and will be priced at $110. Sales will run through Reel Pizza and 20% commission will be retained.


Important Dates

Deliver your one or two works to ArtWaves on the morning of Wednesday, June 26, 2024.

ArtWaves will transport the work to Reel Pizza to be displayed July 1-July 15, and will return it to ArtWaves for you to pick up on July 16.


Instructions

Make your art on 10” x 10” canvases or cradled panels with a minimum depth of 1⅜”. If art is bas-relief, it may not protrude more than 1” forward from the support. If your artwork is on paper adhered to the panel, spray it with an appropriate art varnish to protect it. We recommend matte or satin finish, not glossy. Media must be dry. 


If framed, outside edges of frame must be approx.10x10, which will require that the artwork be smaller. (It is preferable that you paint on canvases or cradled panels with a minimum depth of 1⅜”, but framed works will be accepted.)  10x10 ◼️ $110 unframed works should have the edges painted or treated.

Please mount your D-rings on the back, 2” below the uppermost edge, and attach braided picture wire tautly between the two D-rings.  See sketch.


Please put a clearly printed tag on the back of your artwork: Artwork title, your name, the medium, and your email address, all easily readable.

Important Dates
Submissions due by email by Saturday night, March 16, 2024
You will receive an automatic reply of our receipt of email fairly immediatelyIf you don’t, then please check the address and re-send.

Notification of works accepted:  Monday March 18, 2024.

Delivery of artwork:  Mon., April 1, 2024, 10am to noon.
Installation:  Mon., April 1, 2024, noon to 3pm.
Reception:  Wed., April 3, 2024, 5pm to 7pm.

De-installation and art pick-up:  Tuesday April 30, 2024, 2pm to 4 pm.
Please make arrangements with someone to pick up your work if you can’t get it.


Each member may submit 1 or 2 works. We plan to display at least one piece from each submitting artist. The decisions of the show coordinators shall be final. The library will handle sales and will take a 20% commission. By your submission, you are granting Artwaves and Northeast Harbor Library permission to use images of your artwork for publicity and educational purposes. Your art will be handled by knowledgeable professionals experienced in the handling of artwork. Nevertheless, by your submission you are releasing and discharging the officers and members of Artwaves and the exhibit venue from any and all claims occasioned by damage to or loss of your artwork while in the possession of Artwaves or the venue.


All work must be created by you as the artist, from your original concept, and must be one-of-a-kind unless ceramics in which case a set may be displayed as one artwork. AI (artificial intelligence) works are excluded as not your original work. We suggest that works be limited to no more than 48x48 including the frame and no more than 15-lb in weight – let us know if your work exceeds this.


Three-dimensional pottery, sculpture, and assemblages will be displayed on the open countertops. There may be space on shelves in the library proper, but the Mellon room is heavily used, so no free-standing works in the exhibit room. You may provide a tasteful base-cloth or very short pedestal for any 3D works which you prefer displayed on the countertops.


Fabric and fiber works including quilts and wall-hangings need to be made hangable. Folded silks may be securely draped over a clothes-hanger or mechanism of your choosing, which will then be hung on the wall using the cable system. Weavings and fabric on a rod need a cord attached allowing the rod to be hung on one or two cables. Please let us know if the work will exceed the recommended maximum width of 48” so that we can accommodate. Please advise us on how best to hang your work, especially if a three-dimensional hanging.


Paintings, drawings, prints, and other two-dimensional flatwork must be wired for hanging on the library’s existing cable system; sawtooth hangers will not work. If framed, we suggest the hanging wire be taut and attached with D-rings mounted on the back of the sides, ¼ of the height from the top edge. Paintings must be dry. Artwork must be framed, except museum-depth cradled panels and gallery-wrapped canvas at least 1⅜ inch thick may be unframed if the edges are painted. Staples may not be exposed. Glassworks need a loop at the top by which they can be tied to the cable hook. Please let us know if you will need a window for the display of stained glass, otherwise it will be displayed on the neutral, light-value wall.


Jewelry cannot be securely displayed. If you create one-of-a-kind fine-art-jewelry, you may submit a single framed photo of each piece (1 or 2 pieces) if the photo clearly shows your technique and creativity. We are uncertain whether this will be adequate, so these photos will be displayed at the show coordinators’ discretion. Your photo(s) need to be framed and wired per “Paintings” instructions above.


Email your submissions to exhibits@artwavesmdi.org by Saturday night, March 16, 2024. You may submit 1 or 2 works. Please send an image of each artwork you are submitting to exhibits@artwavesmdi.org. If possible, name your image file with your last name and the title of your artwork, i.e., Wyeth - Christinas World. Please provide the following information for the tag for each work:

Your name

Artwork Title

Medium

Price if for sale, NFS if not for sale

Your email address or phone number

Also print your email after sending, cut out the tag information, and securely attach the tag information to the each submitted work. Delivery will be to NEH Library, the Mellon Room, 4/1/24, 10am to noon.


Thank you for your participation in this exhibit. We plan to notify you of acceptance on Mon., March 18, 2024.

Your tax-deductible donations help support ArtWaves, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Our mission is to make art accessible to the Mount Desert Island and surrounding communities.
