Call for Art: Textures

The Arts Colony will be accepting artwork for our Textures Show on Saturday, June 11th from 8 am to 3 pm.  For more information, guidelines, times and location, please click here or see below.

We are excited to announce a few changes that we hope will make it easier for our members to participate in our upcoming shows!

We have updated our Show Entry Forms to streamline our take-in process.  You can download the form here!  You can now fill out our Show Entry Form on your computer and print it.  Additionally, as you fill in the top portion of our form, it will automatically fill in the artwork labels on the bottom of the form!  If you don't have access to a computer or are unable to complete the form at home, we will have forms available at take-in for you to complete. *Please note you must download the form and save it to your computer in order to fill it out.  The form can not be filled out on our website.

We have also added the option to pay for your entries on-line!  You can now pay for your entries before you come to take-in and save time.  Just print the email receipt you receive once your order has processed and bring it in with you when you drop off your art.  Please make sure your pieces are properly framed and wired and meet the size requirements.  Pieces that do not meet our guidelines will be juried out and no refund will be offered. You can view our guidelines here, as well as watch videos on how to frame and wire your pieces.  We have added a $1 processing fee for on-line entries to cover the cost of our merchant fees.

We have temporarily increased the maximum size allowed for pieces entered into our shows for a trial period.  You can now enter pieces up to 42" wide and 60" tall.

We have added a student entry price.  Students can now enter up to three pieces for just $5 each.  Like our members, students can also enter a 4th piece for free.

We would also like to take a moment to clarify our policy on the eligibility of award winning pieces from previous shows.  Pieces that have previously won an award in one of our shows can be re-entered as long as they did not receive a "top" award- (i.e. Best In Show, 1st Place - Overall, 2nd Place - Overall, or 3rd Place - Overall). 

We are looking forward to another great show and as always, we appreciate your support and feedback.  If you have any questions or comments, please call Kami at 949-307-3827.
