Call for Art: Perspective

The Arts Colony will be accepting artwork for our Perspective Show on Saturday, July 30th from 10 am to 6 pm.  For more information, guidelines, times and location, please click here or see below.

The changes we made to our take-in process last show were a great success.  We were thrilled to be able to accommodate larger pieces in the show and are excited to announce that we will now be considering even larger pieces for our shows.  Our current maximum size allowance will still be 42" wide by 60" tall, but if you would like to submit a piece larger than the current maximum size, it may be juried in by the Show Committee.  If accepted, pieces larger than the current maximum will be counted as and charged as two entries.

We felt the one day take-in was much easier for our staff to handle, but we understand that it might be difficult for some of our artists to drop off their artwork on that specific day.  We can accept artwork prior to the show's take-in date by appointment only.  To schedule an appointment, please call Kami at 949-307-3827.  Entry fees for artwork submitted prior to the take-in date must be pre-paid using our on-line payment system and a printed receipt must be turned in, along with the show entry form, at the time the artwork is submitted.  No artwork will be accepted after the show's take-in date.

Please note we have also changed the take-in hours on Saturday, July 30th to 10 am to 6 pm.
